Try our free Pharmacy Tech  Practice Exam below. Your results will be scored automatically and will display your strengths and weaknesses.

There are two ways to become a certified Pharmacy Technician – through the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) and through the National Healthcareer Association (NHA).  Check your state to see which form of certification is accepted.  The PTCB and the NHA both require the taking of an exam prior to certification. 

The PTCE Exam is about two hours long and consists of 90 questions arranged into three sections: Assisting the Pharmacist in Serving Patients, Maintaining Medication and Inventory Control Systems, and Administration and Management of Pharmacy Practice.  

Candidates taking the ExCPT are given two hours to answer 110 multiple choice questions. The test focuses on three general areas: Regulation and Technician Duties, Drugs and Drug Products and The Dispensing Process.
