Colorado Pharmacy Technician Certification Requirements
The technician-to-pharmacist ratio is 3:1; of which no more than two may be interns. Nevertheless, if there are three technicians on duty, at least one shall:
1. Be recognized by a national certification board,
2. Posses a degree from an accredited pharmacy technician training program
3. Complete 500 hours of experiential training outlined in the regulations. [CO Board Reg. 7.00.30(b)] Pharmacy technicians may use The National Pharmacy Technician Training Program together with appropriate supervision of 500 hours of practical experience.
Only required to maintain certification.
Can the ExCPT be Taken?
Colorado law does not require pharmacy technicians to be certified. As long as the pharmacist supervises less than three technicians, or the third technician has completed the required training, any pharmacy technician may voluntarily obtain national certification by taking the ExCPT. The ExCPT is applying for approval.
