Technician Certification Extension Waivers Expire June 30

Kansas Board of Pharmacy

In September and October 2020, some pharmacy technicians were approved for the technician certification extension through June 30, 2021. Registrations issued after July 1, 2017, require proof of completion of the national certification examination to the Board office. For those technicians granted a waiver, failure to provide proof by  June  30  will  result  in  the  technician’s  registration  being canceled.

Please email pharmacy@ks.gov or fax 785-296-8420 a copy of the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board’s Pharmacy  Technician  Certification  Exam  (PTCE)  or  the  Exam for the Certification of Pharmacy Technicians (ExCPT) certificate. Individuals with expired certifications will not be able to reapply for registration as a pharmacy technician in Kansas until they have passed the certification exam. The Board has approved the PTCE and the National Health-career Association’s ExCPT.

Any pharmacy technician who is unable to take or pass the PTCE or ExCPT by Oct. 31, 2021, may request a six-month extension  at  least  30  days  before  the  technician’s  registration  expiration  date  by  completing  a  Technician  Certification  Extension Request Form LA-75.
