PTCB has streamlined the recertification process so Certified Pharmacy Technicians (CPhTs) can renew in minutes.
To take advantage of the new process, CPhTs must create an NABP e-Profile before their next recertification deadline. PTCB requires all CPhTs to set up an e-Profile no later than October 2019.*
Having an NABP e-Profile allows CPhTs to enter and track their completed continuing education (CE) hours in CPE Monitor, a central database of the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) and the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).
Recertify in minutes.
CPhTs can recertify in minutes if they have a verified NABP e-Profile ID and confirm their CE hours are visible in CPE Monitor.
How do CPhTs set up an eProfile ID?
CPhTs who do not yet have an NABP e-Profile must visit NABP’s website and create one. CPhTs must be sure to add their PTCB Certification Number to the Credentials section of their NABP e-Profile.
How can CPhTs check whether PTCB has verified their eProfile?
After logging into their PTCB Account, CPhTs look for the next to their e-Profile ID on their Account home page. If they do not see the , they can add their e-Profile ID by clicking ‘Add your eProfile’ under ‘Profile Summary’ or when applying for renewal.
How is PTCB’s recertification process better?
CPhTs should set up their e-Profile now and save time recertifying!
CPhTs who have not yet registered for an NABP e-Profile ID should do so promptly. For information on NABP e-Profile, refer to NABP’s Help page or contact NABP.
*The January 2019 target date previously listed in PTCB Accounts has been extended to October.
