Founded in 1995, PTCB is a pioneer in the certification of pharmacy technicians, having certified more than 300,000 pharmacy technicians who play a vital role assisting pharmacists in serving patients nationwide.

"Major employers of pharmacy technicians across the country see that PTCB Certified Pharmacy Technicians facilitate more efficient pharmacy operations and enhanced patient care" said Melissa Murer Corrigan, RPh, Executive Director and CEO of PTCB. "Employers such as Walgreens, CVS, and Target are among the employers that presently support and endorse PTCB across the United States."

Pharmacy practice in modern healthcare continues to evolve. The work of today's pharmacists in caring for patients is expanding to help meet patient needs for safe and effective care. In addition to this important role for pharmacists, safe medication use systems also require the support of well-qualified and competent pharmacy technicians. The https://www.ptcb.org/AM/Template.cfm?Section=Learn&Template=/CM/ContentCombo.cfm&NavMenuID=565&ContentID=2729 [pharmacy technician __title__ Information on Pharmacy Technicians] is accountable to the supervising pharmacist who is legally responsible through state licensure for the care and safety of patients served by the pharmacy.

PTCB's exam, Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination (PTCE), is administered in all 50 states and included in regulations for 31 states. In June, the Florida legislature signed into law a bill requiring new certification standards for pharmacy technicians across the state. PTCB's Online Verification of Certification also allows regulators and employers to get the most updated information on the certification status of all PTCB Certified Pharmacy Technicians (CPhTs).
