PTCB and the Therapeutic Research Center (TRC® Healthcare, or TRC®), a leading provider of medication advisory and learning solutions, have announced a collaboration that delivers simplified access to PTCB’s Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE) for Pharmacy Technicians University learners. Pharmacy Technicians University (PTU) from TRC Healthcare is an online technician training program that supports or exceeds the requirements for technician training in 50 states, including Washington DC. It also supports employer-designed training curriculums to allow organizations to “right-size” training in accordance with the state requirements where they operate.
“PTCB is pleased to join TRC in a cooperative arrangement that creates a simplified path for technician employers to package PTU’s online training with sponsorship of employees to take the PTCE,” said William Schimmel, PTCB Executive Director and CEO. “Education is a key component in supporting patient safety as pharmacy technicians continue to expand their roles in the pharmacy. High quality, online education such as PTU is an excellent baseline for a pharmacy technician to begin their career, and PTCB welcomes the opportunity to facilitate access to distance learning for technicians pursuing their PTCB Certification.”
