Carefully read this Bulletin in its entirety to be sure you understand the process and expectations for examination candidates. You should also make sure that you understand the requirements for licensure in the jurisdiction(s) to which you plan to request PJET eligibility. A good way to get started is to check your board of pharmacy website.
If you have questions about any step of the eligibility application or examination purchase process, review the Additional Exam Procedures section of this Bulletin, or contact the board of pharmacy.
Prior to applying to take the PJET, you must be currently registered as a pharmacy technician in New Hampshire and have obtained a national technician certification.
If you do not already have an NABP e-Profile®, follow the instructions on NABP’s website to create one. Verify that your name in your e-Profile exactly matches the name on the ID that you will use to be admitted to the testing center. See the Taking Your Exam section for lists of acceptable ID. Also, see the Name Matching Requirements section for more information on this requirement. To update your e-Profile, follow the instructions in the Help section of the NABP website.
To apply for an exam, log in to your NABP e-Profile and follow the instructions. The primary jurisdiction of New Hampshire will be preselected. The board of pharmacy determines an applicant’s eligibility to sit for an exam for licensure.
Eligibility periods are typically valid for one year. NABP does not have authority to extend eligibility for candidates.
The nonrefundable eligibility application fee is $100 for the PJET and must be paid when you apply. The application fee does not include the exam fee, and the exam may only be purchased once you have been made eligible.
Once your eligibility has been granted, the purchase link will become available in your e-Profile. NABP strongly recommends that you purchase your exam as soon as you are granted eligibility.
The exam purchase fee is $150.
You will not be able to purchase an exam if you have 10 or fewer business days remaining in your eligibility period.
After your payment is processed, you will receive (via email) your ATT, which you will need to schedule your examination appointments. NABP recommends scheduling your appointment as soon as possible due to limited seat capacity, particularly during higher volume testing periods. Make sure that your name on the ATT letter exactly matches the name on your ID (see Acceptable IDs in the Taking Your Exam section) you will use for admission to the testing center (see How Do I Change My Name in e-Profile in the Help section of the NABP Website).
Your ATT letter includes your name, eligibility dates for the examination, instructions for scheduling your testing appointment, and other information. Your ATT is valid for only one testing session. Please verify the accuracy of the information on your ATT letter.
If you do not receive your ATT letter, check your spam or junk mail folders. If you still do not have access to your ATT, contact Pearson VUE customer service (see Contact Information section).
The PJET is administered by Pearson VUE at Pearson Professional Centers, available in all 50 United States, US territories, and the District of Columbia. NABP strongly recommends scheduling your exam as soon as you have received your ATT letter by email. If your eligibility period expires prior to scheduling an examination appointment, you will forfeit all fees and must begin the application process again, including paying the application and examination fees.
You will receive a confirmation email from Pearson VUE confirming the details of your appointment once it has been scheduled. The message will also include directions to your test center and instructions and policies for rescheduling and canceling your examination appointment.
Make sure all personal information on your confirmation email is correct and that your name exactly matches the name on the ID you will present at the testing center.
