1) Be eighteen years of age or older,
2) Possess a high school diploma, possess a certificate of high school equivalence, or was employed prior to the effective date of this section (4/8/09) as a pharmacy technician without a high school diploma or a certificate of high school equivalence,
3) Pass an examination approved by the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy,
4) Submit to a criminal records check and the results do not show that the person previously has been convicted of or pleaded guilty to any felony in this state, any other state, or the United States."
