Continuing Education Credit:
AACP is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. Pharmacists can earn up to 7.00 contact hours or 0.700 CEUs following the successful completion of the CE activity requirements.
Continuing Education Credit Requirements: Attendees must register, complete and submit CE session evaluations by accessing the online AACP Continuing Education Administration software program, Learning Express CE (LECE). Login or create your account with your AACP e-mail and password if you don’t already have a profile on LECE. (Please verify that your NABP e-Profile ID and birthdate are correctly entered in your LECE profile and correspond with your NABP record. Failure to ensure this information is identical in both programs will jeopardize your earning CE credits.) Once logged into the system, click on “Pending/Private CPD Activity” on the menu bar. Enter the CPD registration/access code in the field box and click on the "Register" button. (The registration/access code will be provided at the completion of the Institute.) You will be presented with the 2016 Encore Institute link, which provides a list of sessions offering CE credit. Select each session you plan on attending and click on the “Register” button at the bottom of the page. Once the scheduled time has passed for a session for which you registered, a green button titled “Complete Evaluation” will appear to the right side of that session’s title. When you are ready to complete the session activity evaluation, click on that button. You will be asked to input the access code in a pop-up window prior to completing the evaluation. Completion of the evaluation is required to earn continuing education credit for the session. Attendees will have four weeks following the Encore Institute to complete evaluations. Access to session activity evaluations in LECE will be denied after November 19, at 11:59 p.m. ET. You may print “proof of participation” from the system for your records. Pharmacists can login to their NABP e-profile to access information about their completed CPE and to print a valid statement of credit if needed.
