To be eligible for the pharmacy technician register, you must complete the following requirements:
An applicant for registration as a regulated member must be sufficiently proficient in English to be able to engage safely and competently in the practice of pharmacy technicians. Evidence of English language proficiency for provisional pharmacy technicians is based on the National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities’ (NAPRA) approved language proficiency standards.
Graduates of a Canadian Council for Accredited Pharmacy Programs (CCAPP) accredited pharmacy technician program will not be required to undergo additional language proficiency testing unless directed otherwise by ACP.
If you are an internationally educated pharmacy technician, you are required to take a language proficiency test and achieve a minimum score in each of the categories for reading, writing, speaking, and listening per the NAPRA-approved language proficiency standards.
English language proficiency results must be current within two years at the time of application to the provisional register.
