"Employment is NOT required to renew your pharmacy technician registration. Pharmacy technicians living or practicing in NEVADA are required to complete one hour of an approved Nevada Law continuing education (CE) prior to renewal. A copy of the completed CE must be maintained at the pharmacy employing the pharmacy technician.

Pharmaceutical technicians-in-training are also required to complete one hour of an approved Nevada Law CE prior to renewal. The Pharmacy technician in training must have a pharmacy technician-in-training registration at each work location.

There has been confusion regarding CE requirements for pharmacy technicians. Nevada law requires that if you are employed in a Nevada pharmacy, you must complete 12-hours of in-service training during the 2-year period immediately preceding the renewal of your registration. Your managing pharmacist must approve and maintain a written record of your training and those records are to be maintained in the pharmacy and will be checked during the annual pharmacy inspection. A pharmacy technician may use the CE hours completed for recertification by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board as their 12-hours of in-service training required during the 2-year period immediately preceding the renewal of registration. Should this option be chosen, documentation must be maintained in the pharmacy for inspection. The Nevada Law CE may NOT be substituted by any other program. DO NOT SEND YOUR RECORDS TO THE BOARD WITH YOUR RENEWAL FORM."
