"When education, training, and national certification through PTCB converge, a strong pharmacy technician workforce emerges. The PTCB Educator Program provides a great opportunity for pharmacy technician training programs to work directly with PTCB to better support students."

— Janet McGregor Liles, MSHS, CPhT, Pharmacy Technician Educator Council

PTCB Educator Program

Advocate for Student Success and Patient Safety

Educators of pharmacy technicians provide instruction in the classroom that helps shape the pharmacy workforce. Keeping up with profession trends and resources is essential to preparing students for careers in practice settings across pharmacy. New medications, technology, and challenges in health care continue to expand pharmacy technician responsibilities beyond traditional roles.

PTCB is committed to helping educators provide the highest quality classroom instruction, prepare students to take the PTCE, and position students for employment in the evolving health care system. We offer a free Educator Program for educators of pharmacy technicians who seek more resources for their instruction and for their students.
