PTCB’s Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam Eligible for Reimbursement Under GI Bill

by Laura Humphrey | Dec 19, 2018

WASHINGTON, DC
 -- The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) has announced that the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE) is available for reimbursement by the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). A passing score on the PTCE is required to earn PTCB’s Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT) Certification. Veterans, active duty service members, caregivers/family members, dependents/survivors, and national guard/reservists are able to take advantage of this opportunity. In accordance with the GI Bill, these groups may be eligible to receive reimbursement for the cost of the exam. 

“PTCB is pleased that greater numbers of eligible candidates, including service members, veterans, and their family members, are now able to be reimbursed for the PTCE testing fee. The GI Bill opens doors to new career opportunities for aspiring pharmacy technicians and supports our mission to advance medication safety by encouraging certification,” said PTCB Senior Director of Certification Programs Levi Boren, PhD. “Adding the PTCE for reimbursement demonstrates federal pharmacy's commitment to advancing patient care and medication safety.”
