- Three (3) of the twenty (20) CE hours must be in opioid-related, substance use disorder-related, or addiction-related continuing education activities.

Note: Remote Dispensing Pharmacy is also known as “Telepharmacy”.
A remote dispensing pharmacy technician is a pharmacy technician who works in a remote pharmacy in accordance with A.R.S. 32-1961.01. A remote pharmacy is supervised by a pharmacist remotely while the pharmacy technician works independently at the remote pharmacy. A remote pharmacy is physically staffed by pharmacy technicians while the pharmacist supervises remotely from another location. This does not apply to pharmacy technicians who work from home.
