Upon course completion the student is required to register for the following boards which accredit our program Pharmacy Technician Board Exam PTCB or the NHA Pharmacy Technician exam.
The national board exam is included for our online students.
If the student’s resident state has a specific Pharmacy Technician licensing exam, then it is the student’s responsibility to complete that licensing exam outside of the PTCB.
The PTCB boards can be taken anywhere in the U.S., through a national proctoring organization such as Pearson Vue.

What do pharmacy technicians do?
Pharmacy technicians work under the direction of a licensed pharmacist to dispense medication and provide information to customers. Pharmacy technicians typically work behind a pharmacy counter at a drugstore, grocery store, hospital, nursing home or other medical facility. This position involves working with pharmacists, patients and occasionally with pharmaceutical reps. CPhT is the abbreviation for Certified Pharmacy Technician. The CPhT works directly under a pharmacist, R.Ph or a PharmD. The CPhT will fill medications along with the pharmacist. They have a large role in the day to day operations of the pharmacy. Students who successfully pass the course are eligible to work at pharmacies across the U.S. Upon passing their state board exam, the pharmacy technician may also work in hospitals and clinics.
Phlebotomy Career Training’s Pharmacy Technician Program is accredited by the PTCB
