Took the PTCB exam today for the 1st time and passed. I want to know when I'll get my certification number so that I can apply for jobs?

According to the PTCB website's FAQ page, you should receive your certificate and official score report within 3 weeks of your test date.
In my experience, most people who don't change their mailing address after they register for the exam see it within that timeframe (or sooner).
If it's vital to have your PTCE certificate number to apply for a certain job, perhaps you can call the PTCB and ask for it. If you need it to register for your state board of pharmacy license, you'll probably have to wait it out. They'll likely want a copy of the actual certificate turned in with your other documents.
