PTCB Launches New Certification Program in Compounded Sterile Preparation

Thursday, February 8, 2018  
Share |
The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB®) has launched the PTCB Certified Compounded Sterile Preparation Technician™ (CSPT™) Program. The CSPT™ Program is the first new certification program PTCB has offered since the organization was founded in 1995 with the introduction of its Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT) Program. Compounded sterile preparation is the process of preparing medications in a sterile environment to prevent contamination.

“The PTCB CSPT Program is a key step toward fulfilling PTCB’s mission to advance medication safety,” said William Schimmel, PTCB Executive Director and CEO. “The Program offers a CPhT the opportunity to demonstrate knowledge and skill as a specialized technician, and his or her commitment to medication safety by meeting the program’s high standards. Employers who choose to employ CSPTs show they value excellence and the highest level of training and preparation.”

To be eligible to apply, a technician must be a PTCB CPhT in good standing, and must have completed either: a PTCB-recognized sterile compounding education/training program and 1 year of continuous full-time compounded sterile preparation work experience; or 3 years of continuous full-time compounded sterile preparation work experience.
