Date:8/29/2013

WASHINGTON, Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) will introduce its updated Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE) on November 1. The updated exam measures the knowledge pharmacy technicians need to effectively support pharmacists and advance patient safety in today's pharmacies. Candidates who apply for PTCB certification before November 1 will be given the current PTCE, and those who apply on or after November 1 will take the updated exam.

Based on the newest data collected, PTCB analyzed the requirements of the occupation to update the PTCE.
