All registrations expire annually on March 31st.  Registrations must be received in the Board office by close of business on March 31st [not post-marked].  All online registrations must be completed before 12:01 AM [EDT] April 1.

Please do NOT register as a new pharmacy technician if you are currently or have been previously registered with the Kentucky Board of Pharmacy. 

If you are unsure of your status, please use our license verification service listed on the home page.
