Registration renewal help (California)
(San Diego, CA)
I've been given conflicting information concerning CE requirements for renewing my Technician registration with the CA BOP. Can anyone please tell me what, if any, number of hours are required?
From PharmTechPros: According to the CA Board of Pharmacy website, there is NO continuing education (CE) requirement. That requirement only applies to pharmacists.
The process of renewal is as follows: The CA Board of Pharmacy sends a renewal application about 6 weeks before your registration/license expires. If your address has changed since you originally got your registration, then you should contact them to be sure they send it to your new address. If you don't receive the renewal notice within 4 weeks of your license expiration, you can renew by submitting a Request for Renewal of California Pharmacy Technician Registration (form link is here).
The BOP cancels your license/registration 60 days after the expiration date. Once that happens, it cannot be renewed, and you will need to submit a whole new application.
If anyone knows anything different, PLEASE post that information here.
