Benefits for Employers: The PTCB Career Center gives pharmacy technician employers the ability to identify and reach qualified candidates. Employers can post jobs online, search for candidates based on specific job criteria, create an online resume agent to email qualified candidates daily, and benefit from online reporting that provides job activity statistics.

  • Unmatched exposure for job listings
  • Easy online job management
  • Resume searching access
  • Company awareness.

Benefits for Certified Pharmacy Technicians: For job seekers, the PTCB Career Center is a free service that provides access to pharmacy technician employers. In addition to posting their resumes, job seekers can browse and view available jobs based on their criteria and save those jobs for later review. Job seekers can also create a search agent to provide email notifications of jobs that match their criteria.


"PTCB is pleased to serve as a career hub for pharmacy technicians. We know pharmacy technician employers need to be able to efficiently find and attract top talent. Given that PTCB Certification is accepted in all 50 states, PTCB CPhTs are in a strong position to seek employment wherever they choose. The PTCB Career Center is a user-friendly resource for employers seeking the best pharmacy technician employees.”

Pharmacy Technician Day Breaks Records

In 2018, recognition of Tech Day expanded to countries across the world. In honor of the day on October 16, the pharmacy technician community participated in multiple ways, drawing record numbers of technicians into the international conversation. Technicians participated in various activities, including the #RxTechDay chat throughout the day, sharing photos via the Facebook event, downloading graphics and badges to wear and display, and adding a Technician Day frame to their Facebook profile.

PTCB appreciates the commitment of so many pharmacy technicians who are dedicated to their work and their patients. Thank you, CPhTs.



Medication Safety Spotlight: Applause for CPhTs!

“Being selected as one of 12 students out of nearly 400 applicants for the Pharmacy Technician Training Program at Dartmouth-Hitchcock was a real honor. The program was challenging and readied me to pass the PTCB Certification exam -- the PTCE -- and open a new chapter in my career as a pharmacy technician. I love working in the pharmacy. It is rewarding to know that what I do every day makes a difference in someone’s life.”

John Trombly
CPhT, Certified Pharmacy Technician, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, NH


“Tiffany Bartlett, CPhT, CSPT, … has been a certified pharmacy technician for more than 20 years and a specialty pharmacy technician at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Spring, TX, for almost three years. ‘I think there are many responsibilities that can be delegated to the technician, such as insurance specialist, educator, medication therapy management, and quality control. With each new opportunity, each role should be evaluated and minimum guidelines should be established relating to educational requirements and work experience in order to choose the right candidate for the position,’ says Bartlett. ‘Pharmacy technicians are anxious to break out of their traditional roles in retail and hospital and use their skills and knowledge to practice in exciting new opportunities.’”
