Technicians may establish and maintain patient profiles, as well as prepare insurance claim forms and manage inventory. Questions requiring clinical knowledge, such as prescription and health care questions, are always referred to as a Licensed Pharmacist. Technicians who pass the (ExCPT) Pharmacy Exam are granted the title of Pharmacy Technician (CPhT). Our program was established by the Institute for the Undergraduate Certificate of Pharmacy Technicians (ICPT).

CPhTs receive written prescription requests from patients, prescriptions sent electronically from doctors offices and in some states are permitted to process physicians orders by phone.
