How You Can Qualify for the Certification Exam Promise

PLEASE NOTE: When you complete the PTCB exam application, you must pay the online "Examination Application" fee of $129 to PTCB. This will be reimbursed by Allied if you do not pass after your first attempt.
  3. Schedule your PTCB exam within 30 to 90 days of completing Allied’s Pharmacy Technician Program. After submitting the exam application, PTCB will send you an "Authorization to Test" letter. Upon receipt of the "Authorization to Test" letter, schedule an exam date within 90 days. PTCB will provide information on testing times and locations, though the exam itself is administered through Pearson VUE. PLEASE NOTE: Allied Schools is NOT involved in the testing process.

  5. Study for the exam using your Pharmacy Technician Program materials, along with the PTCB exam content outline.

Please note: Allied will only reimburse you on your first failed attempt.  After three failed attempts, you will need to appeal to the PTCB and your request to retake the exam again may be approved on a case-by-case basis. For the first two retakes, candidates are required to wait 60 days (from the date of exam) before retaking the PTCB exam. On the third attempt, candidates must wait six months from their last exam date. You must retake the test within one year of the initial exam date. In order to retake the exam, you will need to do the following:
    • Complete the “Examination Application.”
    • You will be charged a fee of $129 to retake the exam.
