What are this year's Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE) dates?

The Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE) is offered continuously throughout the year at Pearson VUE test centers.

This means that there isn't a limited number of exam appointment dates. Available exam appointment times will be available to view and schedule after your application is approved and you receive your authorization to schedule email. Most test centers offer exam appointments Monday through Friday, with some offering Saturday appointments, as well.

Your 90-day authorization period to schedule can be extended for an additional 90 days by paying a $20 fee. There is a limit of two 90-day extensions. Extensions must be purchased before the end of each 90-day authorization period. If you already scheduled your exam, you must cancel the exam appointment before purchasing an extension. Pearson VUE test center locations offering the PTCE can be found here.
