Although the District of Columbia is home to the Technician Certification Board, registration, certification, and training are not required to become a pharmacy technician in The Nation’s Capital. However, most top companies prefer to hire applicants with a diploma or a degree, experience, and/or national certification. Recognized certification exams include the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) (PTCE) and the Institute for the Certification of Pharmacy Technicians (ICPT) (ExCPT).

The District is home to several education centers that offer pharmacy technician training.
