New Year, New Products

Post: January 22, 2019

The beginning of a new year brings about many changes. Some start a weight loss plan, people change jobs, and companies make big announcements.

So, what is our big announcement? PassAssured and the PTCB are working together to give individuals, pharmacies, chain stores, and schools the flexibility to purchase the Pharmacy Technician Training Program (PTTP©), the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE®), the PTCE® Practice Exam, and the Official PTCB Calculations Practice Questions App to streamline training and national certification.

The introduction of this package deal allows schools to monitor their students’ progress from the date of enrollment in the PTTP© to certification. Pharmacies and chain stores have the option to monitor the trainee’s progress through our Educator Control Panel. The national certification package is not an option that pharmacies or individuals had before, and one that could greatly impact the landscape of the pharmacy technician industry.

"It is my belief that the collaboration between PTCB and PassAssured will have a positive impact on reducing the shortage of pharmacy technicians nationwide," David Dubose, RPh and President/CEO of PassAssured said.
