North Dakota Pharmacy Tech Requirements

Updated 11/27/22

North Dakota is one of the few states that require that Pharmacy Technicians graduate from ASHP Accredited Schools. There are three institutions in ND that offer an ASHP Certified Curriculum, located mainly on the northern and eastern edge of the state. PTCB Certification is required for Pharmacy Technicians in North Dakota, see the requirements for that certification below.

Where can I find a list of Board Approved Programs in North Dakota?
