I have not yet completed an education/training program. Can I apply for CPhT certification and take the PTCE® before completing it?   

Yes, the option to apply for certification within 60 days prior to the completion of a recognized education/training program is available to certification candidates. 

If an application is submitted within 60 days prior to completion of a recognized education/training program and approved, the certification candidate will be authorized to schedule and take the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE®) prior to the completion of the education/training program. 

Evidence of the completion of an education/training program will need to be provided by the certification candidate to PTCB in order for certification to be granted.
