PTCB is the pioneer in the certification of pharmacy technicians, who play a vital role in assisting pharmacists in serving patients nationwide. Pharmacy technicians work in retail pharmacies, hospitals and health-systems, nursing homes, mail-order pharmacies, and other pharmacy locations. The field is growing -- pharmacy technician was named one of the 30 top jobs of 2008 by CareerBuilder.com.

The PTCB national Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination (PTCE) is the only certification program for pharmacy technicians accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).

The PTCE is delivered through Pearson Professional Centers in all 50 states, and is included in regulations of 30 states.
