The Vermont Board of Pharmacy does not require training to register for a license as a pharmacy technician. However, if you choose to attend a formal training program, be sure to select one that is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). Programs that are accredited by the ASHP have shown that they meet the recommended requirements to help enable you to pass one of the national exams.
The state of Vermont does not currently recognize any of the national certifications for pharmacy technicians.
Please consult the Vermont Statutes Online, Title 26: Professions and Occupations, Chapter 36: Pharmacy for more information regarding requirements for pharmacy techs.
