Check your state to see which form of certification is accepted. The PTCB and the NHA both require the taking of an exam prior to certification.   

The PTCE consists of 90 questions and is arranged into nine knowledge domains:

- Medications
- Federal Regulations
- Patient Safety
- Quality Assurance
- Order Entry
- Order Processing

The ExCPT has 120 multiple choice questions and focuses on three general areas:

- Technician Duties

- Dispensing Process
