The candidate eligibility requirements for these two certification programs are different, as are the requirements for education and training programs.
Recognized Education/Training Programs for the CPhT Program
To become a recognized education/training program for the Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT) Program, program directors must attest that the required knowledge is included in their program’s curriculum by completing the CPhT Program Recognition Attestation Form. Program directors are encouraged to review the 2020 PTCB CPhT Knowledge Reference prior to completing the form.
Recognized Education/Training Programs for the CSPT Program
ASHP/ACPE-accredited programs that seek recognition should begin the process by completing the following survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CSPTrecognition. ABHES-accredited programs are updated directly from that organization.
Other programs (i.e. those not accredited by ABHES or ASHP/ACPE) seeking recognition should begin the process by submitting a help center request.
