    Applicants must complete education and training or work experience to be eligible in 2020

    WASHINGTON, DC -- With the start of the new year, the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board® (PTCB®), the nation’s leading certifying organization for pharmacy technicians, has implemented new eligibility requirements and an updated Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam® (PTCE®) for its Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT) Program. The 2020 changes are based on data generated by PTCB’s most recent pharmacy Job Task Analysis, reflecting input from more than 40,000 technicians across practice settings, and guidance from the pharmacy community, including employers, educators, and organizations.

    “PTCB is focused solely on advancing medication safety, and we rely on data and input from pharmacy professionals to guide the direction of our program updates,” said PTCB Executive Director and CEO William Schimmel. “With the 2020 changes, PTCB reaffirms our commitment to ensuring that PTCB’s CPhT Program advances patient care. Pharmacists can trust that technicians who earn PTCB credentials have demonstrated current knowledge that is critical to performing their jobs safely in today’s pharmacy workplace.”
