Pharmacy Technician Certification in New Mexico

National certification and state registration are required in New Mexico. The state accepts both ExCPT and PTCB certification. Pharmacy technicians who do not hold one of these certifications must submit a training record conducted by the pharmacist in charge and attain certification within one year of application. The application fee is $35. Once a pharmacy technician is certified there is a bi-annual recertification process.
