Basic Pharmacy Technician Requirements in Wisconsin
While the state does not require registration or licensing of pharmacy technicians, you must at least meet the following requirements:
- Must be at least 18 years of age or older
- Must have a high school diploma or GED
As Wisconsin does not regulate the pharmacy technician career field, your best option is to attend a pharmacy tech program that is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). Training programs that are accredited by the ASHP have shown that they meet the recommended requirements as deemed by the national certification programs from both the PTCB and the NHA.
National certification is not required in Wisconsin.
