Pharmacy tech exam accredited by NCCA


ST. CHARLES, Mo. The Exam for the Certification of Pharmacy Technicians, which is given by The Institute for the Certification of Pharmacy Technicians, has been granted accreditation by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies.

The NCCA grants accreditation to a select group of organizations that demonstrate compliance with the NCCA Standards for the Accreditation of Certification Programs. The accreditation process includes a comprehensive and independent expert analysis of the certification program against the highest industry standards.

Rebecca Rabbitt, ICPT’s chief executive officer said, “We are pleased with this recent decision. As more states adopt certification requirements, the ExCPT will be a valuable alternative for those wanting on demand testing over 300 days a year. We are especially pleased to have achieved this goal so early in our tenure.”

The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, in a letter to all the state Boards of Pharmacy, spoke about the value of NCCA accreditation by noting it as a set of objective, third-party standards that are widely accepted and highly regarded in the certification industry.
