Florida Passes New Legislation

Wed, 02 Jul 2008 18:00:00 GMT

(Tallahassee, FL) Florida's Governor Crist has signed SB 1360 into law - a significant piece of legislation for pharmacy technicians.
The legislation requires technicians to register with the Florida Board of Pharmacy by 2010. Beginning in 2011, technicians must complete one of the following: a board-approved training program, 1,500 hours of work as a technician under a Florida licensed pharmacist or certification by a program accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies.
NPTA fully supported SB 1360 and urged Governor Crist to approve the legislation. Governor Crist personally acknowledged NPTA's position and took it under careful consideration when reviewing the legislation.
