Are you an employer committed to cultivating a qualified pharmacy technician workforce? Would you like to receive feedback on your employees’ Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam® (PTCE®) performance? We offer a free Advocate Employer Program for employers of pharmacy technicians who seek more resources for their workforce.

Survey data will be compiled, summarized, and distributed to Advocate Employers on an annual basis.
