About the Class...

The South Central Kentucky Area Health Education Center (AHEC) is conducting a Pharmacy Technician Training Class. The class will prepare individuals for taking the National Certification Exam for Pharmacy Technicians. Beginning in 2007, the PTCB exam is offered exclusively in a Computer-Based Testing (CBT) format. In April 2009, PTCB began continuous testing. Candidates are able to test on-demand at their local Pearson VUE Professional Testing Center. (Bowling Green Technical College is a testing Pearson VUE Testing Center for the pharmacy tech exam.) Please check the website ( for exam information and the current examination fee. Candidates will now be given two (2) hours to complete the 90 multiplechoice question examination, along with a brief tutorial and survey. Official pass/fail results are available to candidates at the completion of the exam. Because of changes in healthcare, pharmacy technicians are becoming a much more integral and valuable part of the health care team. National Certification will guarantee an individual's qualifications for the position of Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT). To continue to hold certification, a CPhT is required to obtain twenty hours of continuing education for recertification within two years of original certification or previous certification. To be eligible to sit for the National Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination, the candidate must have a high school diploma or its equivalent (e.g., a GED or foreign diploma); no felony conviction; no drug or pharmacy related convictions, including misdemeanors (These violations must be disclosed to PTCB.); no denial, suspension, revocation, or restriction of registration or licensure, consent order or other restriction by any State Board of Pharmacy; and no admission of misconduct or violation of regulations of any State Board of Pharmacy.

PTCB Announces Pharmacy Tech Exam Results

The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) administers a voluntary national certification program for pharmacy technicians. The cornerstone of the program is the Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination, a written exam that samples candidates' knowledge base related to the responsibilities and activities of pharmacy technicians. Since the program's inception, July 1995, PTCB has certified over 380,000 pharmacy technicians. As of September 30, 2010, Kentucky has 4,967 CPhTs. Kentucky is among the thirty-six State Boards of Pharmacy that recognize PTCB Certification. The goal of the certification program is to enable pharmacy technicians to work more effectively with pharmacists to offer greater patient care, service and safety. Because of training and national certification, pharmacists can better serve patients and increase their direct patient care activities because they can rely on CPhTs who have a documented mastery of knowledge and skill. CPhTs are making a positive difference in patient care!
