It’s official! Franchesca D. Grepo, CPhT! (Certified Pharmacy Technician)
I took the pharmacy technician exam March 16, 206 at Pearson Vue in Dallas, TX. I Just studied one book and the preparation was not intense compared to my Pharmacy Board Exam in the Philippines.
EXAM: 90 questions, 120 minutes, computer-based exam. After taking the exam, it will show right away if you pass or fail the exam.
this is the blue print / coverage of exam:
the only reference I read for the PTCB exam. Mosby’s! :)
Remarks/disclaimer: Mahirap parin yung exam pero mas madali siyang aralin kapag nga may background sa Pharmacy. Iba-iba ang requirements per state. Sa Texas, di na ako hiningan ng formal pharm tech education. Basta pasado mo lang national exam nila, pwede ka na mag work as Pharmtech. Di ko na rin pinakita yung TOR, diploma, Philippine license ko para maging pharmtech. Kasi di naman siya acknowledged or di naman siya kailangan.
Kahit pharmacy undergraduate kayang kayang ipasa yung exam. Aralin na lang yung US laws, organizations, systems, inventory and management nila. I don’t know kung pwede ka mag take ng Pharm tech exam sa Pilipinas. You can just ask from pearsonvue itself. Mayron silang branch sa Makati, PH.
