The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board is considering offering a new certification program in IV admixture as well as continuous testing

Certified technicians who want to move up the career ladder may have a new option open to them in the future. The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) is considering setting up a certification program in IV admixture, now that the U.S. Pharmacopeia has finalized its Chapter 797 clean room standards. That's one thing Melissa Murer Corrigan, CEO of PTCB, revealed at the ASHP midyear meeting in Las Vegas last week. Another plan PTCB is mulling is to offer continuous certification testing, rather than holding tests only on certain days, she added. This will offer technicians greater convenience in taking the test.
