Pharmacy employers are at the forefront of the nation’s evolving healthcare system. As an active participant in the pharmacy community, PTCB collaborates with employers across practice settings to ensure their technicians are prepared to assume their roles and expand their responsibilities while continuing to advance medication safety.

Build Your Pharmacy Team With Confidence

PTCB’s credential programs play an important role in demonstrating an employer’s commitment to quality, medication safety, and a higher level of patient care. Our certification programs require ongoing continuing education, helping technicians keep up with the latest advances in the field. 

Here are ways to support your technicians in earning their Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT) Certification and additional PTCB credentials:

  • Inform them of the CPhT Program and process to become PTCB Certified
  • Build PTCB credentials into the career ladder for pharmacy technicians at your establishment
  • Incentivize earning PTCB Certifications and Certificates
  • Pay the credential fees for your pharmacy technician employees using PTCB’s direct billing process

Employer Program: For Employers Committed to a Qualified Workforce

Employers may wish to join PTCB’s Employer Program to obtain more resources for their workforce. As a participating employer, you join national chain, community, independent, and health-system pharmacies who work with PTCB to encourage pharmacy technician candidates to participate in the PTCB Credential Programs. Organizations complete an annual survey, which will provide general information to PTCB about current pharmacy technician employees in the workplace.

  • Ability to pay your employees’ certification fees using direct billing via PTCB’s Portal
  • Free bulk verification of pharmacy technician employees' certification statuses
  • Summary reports showing organization pass rate data and performance on the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE)
  • Discounted rates to post job openings in the PTCB Career Center

  • Access to the exclusive employer discussion group within the PTCB Community
  • Curated newsletters with valuable information for employers

Direct Billing: Pay Technicians’ Credential Fees
