PTCB Calls For Profession-wide Feedback on Proposed Changes to Certification Program
Date:3/1/2012

WASHINGTON, March 1, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --Today, the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) launches the C.R.E.S.T. Initiative Survey to collect feedback from the pharmacy profession on recommended changes to the PTCB Certification Program. Recommendations include the creation of specialty pharmacy technician exams and additional requirements for PTCB certification, such as requiring a minimum period of practical experience, criminal background checks, and completion of an accredited education program.

"Changes to the PTCB Certification Program have potential to impact hundreds of thousands of pharmacy technicians nationwide. Candidate eligibility requirements have remained largely unchanged since the organization's founding in 1995," said Megan Sheahan, PharmD, PTCB Director of Professional Affairs.

The survey's launch is part of the C.R.E.S.T. Initiative, which began in 2011 with a summit focused on the areas of Consumer Awareness, Resources, Education, State Policy, and Testing relating to pharmacy technicians. Summit participants, including pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, educators, employers, and State Boards of Pharmacy, expressed the need for the profession to make decisions on the future of pharmacy technicians. This sentiment, coupled with results from a survey completed by 12,000 individuals prior to the summit, led to the recommendations.

"This is an opportunity for individuals to share insight on important issues within the pharmacy profession," said Sheahan. "We encourage all members of the health care team to participate in this survey."
