I have an extensive work history. Can I receive an exception to the CPhT-Adv™ eligibility requirements?

To obtain the CPhT-Adv certification, PTCB requires candidates to:

  • hold an active PTCB CPhT certification
  • have at least three (3) years of work experience as a pharmacy technician within the past 8 years, and
  • at least four PTCB Assessment-Based Certificate Programs, or three Certificate Programs and the Compounded Sterile Preparation Technician® (CSPT®) Certification.
PTCB currently offers the following Assessment-Based Certificate Programs:

PTCB will not provide CPhT-Adv certification to candidates without the candidate first meeting the above eligibility requirements. Having an extensive certification history alone does not supersede the CPhT-Adv eligibility requirements.
