Pharmacy Technician Certification in Virginia

Applicants for pharmacy technician registration in Virginia must submit their applications online. Registrations expire every year on December 31 and require .5 hours of continuing education.


Pharmacy technicians with PTCB certification do not need to complete a training program and can be registered immediately.


Those applicants without PTCB certification must complete a board-approved program such as the National Pharmacy Technician Training Program. They may then practice once they successfully complete either the ExCPT certification or the Virginia Pharmacy Technician Exam.
