What it takes to be a Pharmacy Technician (CPhT)

In order to work in a pharmacy, you must be licensed by your state’s board of pharmacy. In order to be licensed, you must have certification from the PTCB. You can get certified by passing the PTCB Exam, the PTCE.

Most states allow you to apply for Pharmacy Technician licensure after you’ve passed the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board Exam (PTCE). Additional requirements typically consist of an initial application, a small yearly licensing fee, and a high school education. Licensing is required by law to work as a Pharmacy Technician in almost every state. Anyone over 18, with a high school diploma and a clean criminal record (with no felonies or drug related misdemeanors) can become a Certified Pharmacy Technician by passing the PTCB Exam.

The PTCB Exam consists of 100 questions that is meant to test your knowledge from a range of subject areas that is consistent with what you need to know whether you work in retail pharmacy, a mail-order pharmacy or a hospital setting. The PTCB exam isn’t easy, in fact it only has a 58% pass rate.
