    PTCB Finishes Beta Version of Sterile Prep Test

    The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) has completed the beta version of the PTCB Certified Compounded Sterile Preparation Technician (CSPT) Program. This is a key step in developing an exam for CSPT candidates that is considered psychometrically sound and meets industry standards for validity.

    “The CSPT Program will be the first new certification program PTCB has launched since its inception more than 20 years ago,” said PTCB Executive Director and CEO Everett B. McAllister, RPh, in a statement. “It is the culmination of a long-term initiative to develop a program for PTCB-Certified Pharmacy Technicians (CPhTs) who perform pharmaceutical sterile compounding.”

    The PTCB CSPT Exam Development Committee developed two 90-question forms for the beta version of the exam.

    Analysis of the CSPT beta exam was conducted by internal and external consultants and included three parts: item analysis, end of exam survey analysis, and time analysis.
