Transferring Licenses from One State to Another

For those who need to transfer their current pharmacy technician license from one state to another, you must contact the Board of Pharmacy in the state in which you plan to move. For example, if you currently have an Illinois license and plan to work in California, you must contact the Board of Pharmacy in California to check their requirements. It may take up to 90 days to process your application, so be sure to do this as quickly as possible once you know that you are moving.

You should also contact your CURRENT state's Board of Pharmacy to notify them that you are moving.

You can obtain contact information for each state's Board of Pharmacy at the following page on our site:

I'm a travel technician who wants to go to other states. So if you do this you have to transfer every time? If you're nationally certified, I don't understand this.
