For the first time ever, pharmacy technicians can take their PTCB exams online. PTCB is now offering online proctored exam delivery to make testing more widely available during COVID-19. This option allows technicians to take any PTCB credential exam online under the virtual supervision of a live proctor.


Administered on a secure platform, online PTCB exams have the same formats and completion times as exams taken at a test center.


It’s easy for technicians to schedule online exams or switch existing in-person testing appointments to online delivery. To test online, candidates need:

  • a computer with a webcam
  • a reliable internet connection
  • a quiet space where you can spend a few uninterrupted hours

Take any PTCB exam online. The online option is available for all PTCB exams, including the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam® (PTCE®), the Certified Compounded Sterile Preparation Technician® (CSPT®) Exam, and Assessment-Based Certificate Exams in Technician Product Verification (TPV) and Medication History.


For a reduced rate. PTCB has temporarily lowered fees for all PTCB credentials. Also, our Official PTCB Practice Exam sale is extended through July 31.


Still looking forin-person testing? In-person testing has resumed at select test center locations in certain states.
