When you take the Pharmacy Technician Exam, you will have 1 hour and 50 minutes to complete 90 multiple choice questions. The scores are calculating using a statistical method to adjust for the exam’s relative difficulty, so there is no way to know exactly how many correct answers are needed to pass. However, scores are provided immediately after completing the test and feedback is provided which indicates your stronger and weaker areas of performance.
This exam is administered by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board and the PTCB certification is valid nationwide. After passing the PTCB Exam you may use the CPhT designation after your name. The certification is valid for 2 years and you can re-certify after completing 20 hours of continuing education or by retaking the exam.
