PTCB PTCE 2020 Exam Guide
Earning your PTCB Certification is an important first step toward a rewarding career in healthcare. As a Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT), you can work more effectively to support your pharmacy team and provide superior patient care.
Beginning January 2020, candidates must complete a PTCB-Recognized Education/Training Program OR equivalent work experience in order to be eligible. To be eligible for the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE) under the 2020 requirement, a candidate must complete a PTCB-Recognized Education/Training Program (or completion within 60 days) OR equivalent work experience as a pharmacy technician (min. 500 hours). This alternative path will serve experienced pharmacy technicians who were not in a position to attend a PTCB-recognized program.
