Lawson State non-credit Pharmacy Technician Program

Lawson State non-credit Pharmacy Technician Program

In 2020 the Alabama Board of Pharmacy required that pharmacy technicians registering with the board take a board approved program or pass a board recognized pharmacy technician certification examination within 6 months of registration.

Please review: 680-X-2-.14 — The Role of Technicians in Pharmacies in Alabama
