RxTechExam Frequently Asked Questions
The material on the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE) is highly specialized and is challenging to those interested in the profession but without previous experience. That’s where RxTechexam can help. We are a PTCB accredited course. We cover testable material on the exam and concentrate on the tougher elements, integrating proven methods for you to master the material at your own pace, on your own schedule, on whatever device you’d like. 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.

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.
