Iowa Pharmacy Tech CE Requirements

Discover the Continuing Education requirements for Pharmacy Techs in Iowa, tailored to navigate you though the licensure process and regulations specific to Iowa and guide you which of our online courses fulfill those requirements.
From the Iowa Board: "Technicians will need to renew their national certification through NHA or PTCB prior to renewing their Board CPhT registration. When renewing your state registration, the only CEs that are relevant are to those administering immunizations or working in a telepharmacy setting. Questions related to CEs for the renewal of your national certification through NHA or PTCB must be addressed towards the proper national licensing board."

These continuing education requirements are not to be in addition to the total continuing education credits required to maintain national certification.
