This fully online course is designed to prepare the individual to take the nation Pharmacy Technician Certification exam (PTCE) offered through the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB). An overview will be provided on the outline of the exam and the application process. PTCB's exam determines whether individuals have mastered the knowledge and skills necessary to practice as a pharmacy technician. Benefits of PTCB certification include an increase in job promotion opportunities, recognition within the pharmacy profession, and an increased focus on patient safety. Pharmacists recognize that PTCB-certified technicians demonstrate their qualifications and the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to function as a pharmacy technician through the examination. Individuals who meet eligibility requirements and pass the PTCE may use the designation CPhT (Certified Pharmacy Technician).
