    I believe this topic has been covered before elsewhere on this forum. Go to www.ptcb.org where you'll find all the info you want about the test. As for if you need to be certified by PTCB to be an intern, it's doubtful but it depends on each individual state. Try a google search for your state's board of pharmacy and see what they say. Some states require PTCB certification to be a pharmacy tech and some don't. The exam itself is long, if memory serves it took three to four hours. Try doing a search through here for PTCB and see if there is any other info that may be more current since I took my boards almost three years ago.
