PTCB Exam Updates

Exam (PTCE) Updates

Beginning January 1, 2020, PTCE content will be organized into four knowledge areas rather than the current nine, and will focus only on essential knowledge that applies across practice settings.

Consistent with industry best practices and accreditation standards, PTCB periodically conducts a Job Task Analysis study approximately every 5 years as the foundation for its national certification program.

“The data from PTCB’s study in 2016 informed the updates to be made in 2020, and reflect technician responsibilities in current pharmacy practice,” said Levi Boren, PhD, PTCB Senior Director of Certification Programs. PTCB also received more than 500 individual comments during a 90-day comment period on implementation of the education/training eligibility pathway.

More information is available on PTCB’s website, including the listing of PTCB-recognized education/training programs and updated PTCE content outline.
