Become a Sponsor

Payment Options for PTCB Advocate Educators and Employers

Sponsorship is a simple way for employers and educators to pay for your pharmacy technician employees or students to earn or renew PTCB Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT) Certification or Certified Compounded Sterile Preparation Technician™ (CSPT™) Certification.

  • Sponsorship saves educators and employers time and offers a valuable benefit to your pharmacy technician employees or students.
  • Avoid the hassle of cumbersome reimbursement paperwork by taking advantage of PTCB’s online process for identifying eligible candidates and making payments. 
  • Access PTCB’s Sponsorship Portal to manage your pharmacy technician candidates, add and withdraw sponsorship, and create your own confidential reporting so you can view and track pass/fail exam results of your sponsored test-takers.
  • Becoming a sponsor is free. The only cost you incur is the cost of sponsored candidates’ exam or recertification fees.

How it Works

Sponsors enjoy a streamlined process for identifying eligible candidates for either CPhT or CSPT Certification using one of the following five easy methods. PTCB can work with you to determine which method of sponsorship is best for you.

  1. Pre-approval: This method is ideal for sponsors who have a pre-determined list of eligible candidates’ employee or student IDs.
  2. Vouchers: This option allows you to distribute vouchers to your eligible candidates.
  3. Self-identification: This method works well for those who may not know who from their organization is applying for certification.
  4. IP Address Identification: This option is ideal for sponsors whose candidates are applying from a particular computer network.
  5. Token: This method is best for sponsors who want to integrate their human resources or training network to an automatic application process that does not require approval of individual candidates.

Payment

There is no payment due at the time of a candidate submitting their application. Sponsors are emailed invoices monthly for sponsored candidates who took the CPhT Exam or CSPT Exam and for CPhTs or CSPTs sponsored for recertification during the previous month.

Sponsorship saves you time and money.
