It depends on the state and on the type of certification. In the USA not depending on state, one can become nationally certified. This is obtained by taking an exam, information can be found on www.ptcb.org. With this certification one might get higher positions and higher pay. According to the state, a person working in a pharmacy might have to submit an application to the state board of pharmacy and obtain a pharmacy technician license. Alabama requires licenses, but Tennessee does not. Check with the state board of pharmacy to determine this.

In all 50 states of the US you need a license to be a pharmacist. To get licensed, you will need to have interned under a licensed pharmacist, graduated from an accredited college of pharmacy, and passed the license examination. It takes pre-pharmacy requirements set by the school you are applying to. All schools favor a undergraduate degree, however as long as you take the required classes set by the individual schools you should be fine. Also many schools require the PCAT before admission.

I live in Louisiana and I became a pharmacy tech by going through the Lousiana board of pharmacy website and click on pharmacy tech candiate and fill out the information and mail it back to the Louisiana board of pharmacy. It is recommended to take a training course, usually at a tech center. There is the pharmacy technician certification exam to get nationally certified, but in order to practice you need to get a license from the state. You need to check your state licensure board for an application and the requirements. You can search dopl or apply for licensure or something like that on a common search engine.
