Do I have to take the PTCB?

by Liz

Are licensees test required if you have been grandfathered in?

I Live in West Virginia and have been a pharmacy tech for 30 years working retail. I was previously grandfathered in, and never had to take the certification test for my licenses. Will this continue in the future?

It will depend on what your state wants

In your case, it's really just whatever the W. Virginia Board of Pharmacy decides they require to issue your license.

However, it also may be up to your employer. Some pharmacy management groups are requiring National Certification, even if the state they operate in does not.

Perhaps someday, these things will all be standardized on a national level. But for now, it's really up to the state and employer.
