CPE Monitor Service Rollout Benefiting Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians


CPE (Continuing Pharmacy Education) monitoring program is a national collaborative effort by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) and the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) that will provide an electronic system for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to track their completed continuing education credits.  This initiative will streamline and help to support pharmacists and technicians in maintaining the required CE credits.  The process will begin its rollout in late 2011.  In order to prepare for the rollout pharmacists and technicians are encouraged to obtain their NABP e-Profile ID now (www.MyCPEmonitor.net) to ensure their information is registered and properly setup.  Although currently pharmacy technicians do not have to complete CE under the Pennsylvania State Board of Pharmacy’s Regulations, the program is still a useful resource for both groups.

Here is how it works:

Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will receive a unique ID after setting up their e-Profile with NABP. Beginning in the latter part of 2011, they will provide their NABP e-Profile ID and date of birth to the ACPE-accredited provider when they register for CPE or submit a request for credit. The system will then direct electronic data from ACPE-accredited providers to ACPE and then to NABP, ensuring that CPE credit is officially verified by the providers. Once information is received by NABP, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will be able to log in to access information about their completed CPE activities. After a transition period, ACPE-accredited CPE providers will no longer be required to distribute statements of credit.
