Free Pharmacy Technician Study Guides / Practice Exams

Many states now require taking the PTCB exam before they will approve a state license. And, even if a state doesn't require it, many companies have adopted their own policy to require national certification through either the PTCB or NHA.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the occupation of pharm tech is steadily growing, and they predict the overall number of technician jobs to increase by 32% over the next decade. These prospective growth numbers are unusually high for an occupation which doesn't require a college degree.

Since over half of pharm tech jobs in the U.S. are in major / national retail stores, a majority of them will most likely be required to take the pharm tech exam (PTCB or ExCPT) at some point. That's why this website was created! The site is totally FREE to use and steadily growing every week. It's advised to take all of the pharmacy technician practice tests on the site, and ask questions if you need help.
