Pearson VUE delivers two types of PTCB credential exams:

  1. PTCB Credential Exams
    • PTCB Certification Exams include the Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination (PTCE) and the Compounded Sterile Preparation Technician (CSPT) Exam.
    • PTCB Assessment-Based Certificate Exams include the Medication History Exam and the Technician Product Verification Certificate Exam.

    These exams are delivered in Pearson Professional Centers and other physical test centers nationwide.

  2. The Official PTCB Practice Exam for the PTCE is delivered on your own computer at your convenience.

Depending which type of exam you would like to take, you will need a different username and password to use on the Pearson VUE website.
