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 110 minutes long and consists of 90 questions arranged into nine knowledge domains, including Pharmacology, Pharmacy Law and Regulation, Sterile and Non-Sterile Compounding, Medication Safety, Quality Assurance, Order Entry and Fill Process, Inventory Management, Billing and Reimbursement and Information Systems and Usage.  

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.
