ICPT Certification Exam Receives NCCA Accreditation 

The Institute for the Certification of Pharmacy Technicians is proud to announce the Exam for the Certification of Pharmacy Technicians, ExCPT®, has been granted accreditation by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).

NCCA, the accrediting arm of the National Organization for Competency Assurance (NOCA), grants accreditation to a select group of organizations that demonstrate compliance with the NCCA Standards for the Accreditation of Certification Programs. The accreditation process includes a comprehensive and independent expert analysis of the certification program against the highest industry standards.
“While ICPT has always adhered to quality standards in certification, accreditation by NCCA serves as an indicator to the public and other stakeholders that the ExCPT is a psychometrically sound and legally defensible certification exam,” said Ken Schafermeyer, RPh, PhD, ICPT’s Director of Education.

Rebecca Rabbitt, PharmD, ICPT’s CEO added, “We are pleased with this recent decision. As more states adopt certification requirements, the ExCPT will be a valuable alternative for those wanting ondemand testing over 300 days a year. We are especially pleased to have achieved this goal so early in our tenure.”

The value of NCCA accreditation was articulated in a recent memo from the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy to all the state Boards of Pharmacy as a set of objective, third-party standards that are widely accepted and highly regarded in the certification industry.

The ExCPT is being offered in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and is available to pharmacy technicians from all practice settings. Candidates may register by calling LaserGrade at 1-800-211-2754. Exams can be taken within one or two days of registration and results are available immediately upon completion of the exam. The Exam fee is $95. Details about the ExCPT may be found at
