How do I recertify my CPhT Certification?

To renew your CPhT Certification, PTCB requires that you:

Complete 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 activities must be completed within your current 2-year recertification period. PTCB does not accept pharmacist-specific (P-specific) CE.

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

A link to submit your application for recertification will show on your PTCB Account homepage beginning 60 days prior to your certification expiration date. To avoid the $25 late processing fee, submit your application before your application deadline.

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