RxTechExam Frequently Asked Questions

The material on the PTCE is highly specialized and presents problems to those interested in the profession but without previous experience. That’s where we step in. We cover testable material on the exam and concentrate on the tougher elements, integrating proven methods to master the material at your own pace, on your own schedule, at your own leisure. Our program is balanced between expertise and practicality. While most programs fill your mind with unnecessary elements, we concentrate only on testable material for the PTCE.

RxTechExam’s sole purpose is to provide the knowledge and materials to prepare our clients to pass the National Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE). More information is available to you under the tab About Us.

It is our recommendation to take the PTCE. While the overwhelming opinion is that the ExCPT is easier, your state and/or future employer may not recognize it, as it hasn’t been around as long as the PTCE. Both are accredited exams; however the PTCE is widely accepted while the ExCPT is not. A person who is capable of passing the PTCE is capable of passing the ExCPT, and it is because of this that our site will prepare you for both.

No.  Unfortunately we are unable to administer either the PTCE or the ExCPT.  Please click on the links provided to sign up or for more information on either exam after the completion of our course. We offer preparatory materials to ensure your success on the PTCE.

The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board.(PTCB)

Assuming you took our advice and decided to take the PTCE…

  • Go to www.ptcb.org
  • Click “Apply for the Exam”
  • Follow the on-screen instructions

Specific state requirements can be viewed on their respective Board of Pharmacy websites’, we’ve provided a list of these websites under the tab Resources

In most cases the only action required after passing the PTCE is to register with your state.  Once again due to varying state regulations you’ll need to check with your state’s board of pharmacy.  Links to individual state’s boards of pharmacy are available under the Resources tab.

In many cases, a technician that is nationally certified receives a higher wage and is considered more qualified for any potential open positions when searching for employment.

Put very simply… NO.  We provide everything you’ll need to study for, and pass the PTCE.
