CPhT - Certified Pharmacy Technician

The Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination (PTCE) is a nationally recognized certification offered by the PTCB (Pharmacy Technician Certification Board). The PTCE content was developed by experts in pharmacy technician practice based on a nationwide Job Analysis Study that the PTCB’s Certification Council and Board of Governors used to approve the blueprint for the current PTCE. Those who pass the exam will be recognized as a nationally Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT).

As a CPhT, you may perform some or all of the following tasks:
  • Receive and process prescription requests from patients, and those sent from doctors’ offices
  • Accurately count, weigh, pour and mix medications
  • Prepare accurate prescription labels
  • Prepare and Process insurance claim forms and manage inventory
  • Establish and maintain patient profiles as well as computerized patient records
Licensed pharmacies depend on skilled pharmacy technicians to prepare prescription medications with accuracy and to provide good customer service. Learning these professional skills and passing the national certification exam qualifies graduates for entry-level pharmacy technician jobs in a variety of healthcare settings.
