How do I recertify?

In order to recertify your CPhT certification, PTCB requires that you:

Earn 20 pharmacy technician-specific continuing education (CE) hours, including:

  • 1 hour specifically in the subject of pharmacy law
  • 1 hour specifically in the subject of patient safety

CE programs must be completed within your two-year certification period. The specific date range in which you may earn your CE hours can be found on the homepage of your PTCB Account, under the Manage My Certification section.

While PTCB does not provide or endorse specific CE programs, we do provide a list of some CE providers and CE programs.

A link to submit your application for recertification will show on your PTCB Account homepage beginning 60 days prior to your certification's expiration date.

To begin the application process, go to your PTCB Account > Manage My CPhT Certification section > Apply for Recertification link.
