Permanent Rules Requiring Pharmacy Technicians to Complete Continuing Education

The Washington State Board of Pharmacy has adopted rules which establish continuing education (CE) requirements for pharmacy technicians. The adopted rule was filed with the Code Revisers Office. View rule and FAQs here.

The rule requires pharmacy technicians to complete 10 hours of continuing education (CED) or 1.0 CE unit annually. One hour must be in pharmacy law and the remaining nine hours must be in pharmacy technician related education. The proposed rule mirrors the national CE standards for pharmacy technicians set by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board and the Institute for the Certification of Pharmacy Technicians.

Continuing education accrual cycles will begin with those pharmacy technicians that have a January 1, 2013, birthday. The first continuing education hours will not be required to be attested to, or reported, until January 1, 2014.

You can find more information on the Washington State Board of Pharmacy’s Webpage.  If you have questions, please contact Kitty Slater-Einert at 360.236.4861 or by email at kitty.slater@doh.wa.gov
