PTCB’s Recertification Process is Now Easier and Faster

CPhTs Need To Have an NABP e-Profile ID Before Recertifying


Certified Pharmacy Technicians (CPhTs) live busy lives both inside and outside the pharmacy. PTCB has been working to make the CPhT recertification process faster and easier. We recently invested in a streamlined recertification application process to save CPhTs time and provide immediate approvals, allowing them to recertify much faster as long as their CE hours are recorded in their NABP CPE Monitor account.

Please note: Their application deadline and certification expiration dates have not changed and continuing education requirements remain the same.

To take advantage of the new process, CPhTs must have an NABP e-Profile on file with PTCB before their next recertification deadline.


How is PTCB’s recertification process better?

  • Eliminates the need to manually enter CE information already entered into CPE Monitor
  • Provides instant recertification/reinstatement
  • Quick and efficient application


How do CPhTs set up their e-Profile ID?

To set up an NABP e-Profile, CPhTs visit NABP’s website and create one. After creating their e-Profile account, they must be sure to add their PTCB Certification Number to the Credentials section of their NABP e-Profile. CPhTs should ensure that their e-Profile ID and birth date (month and day) match in their PTCB Account and NABP e-Profile. To update their birth date in their NABP e-Profile, they can follow these instructions.


How can they check if their e-Profile has been verified by PTCB?

After logging into their PTCB Account, they look for the   next to their e-Profile ID on their Account home page. If they do not see the  , they can add their e-Profile ID by clicking ‘Add your e-Profile’ under ‘Profile Summary’ or when applying for renewal.


Updated Renewal Fee

In coordination with this upgrade, PTCB will adjust the recertification fee for the first time in more than a decade (since 2007). Beginning October 2, 2019, the recertification fee will be $49 and the reinstatement fee will be $89. The existing $25 Late Application Processing Fee and $10 Reprocessing Fee will not change.

For information about creating an NABP e-Profile, refer to NABP’s Help page or contact NABP.




*The January 2019 target date previously listed in PTCB Accounts has been extended to October.
