Idaho steps up pharmacy technician regulations

TWIN FALLS, Idaho The sparsely populated Western state of Idaho was one of the last to require certification of pharmacy technicians, but increased reliance on them has spurred the state to step up enforcement of regulations, according to published reports.

The Associated Press reported that the new regulations coincide with a slowdown in hiring of pharmacists by national chains and increased reliance on pharmacy techs.

 

The College of Southern Idaho will start offering pharmacy tech certification courses in the fall, AP reported.
