During COVID-19, the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) continues to focus on the advancement of medication safety and patient care by offering secure online delivery of exams. Technicians may choose the online delivery option during their initial test scheduling process. Those who already have in-person testing appointments may opt to cancel and switch to an online delivery appointment. Online exams have the same formats and completion times as exams taken at a test center. Exams online are administered on a secure platform using face-comparison technology, ID verification, browser lockdown, recordings, and other security features. To take their exam online, candidates need a computer with a webcam, a reliable internet connection, and a quiet space where they can work uninterrupted.
