ACPE logo AACP is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. Accredited continuing education activities during INnovate 2023 will discuss leadership-related topics.

Information on how to obtain continuing education credit

To obtain CPE credit, pharmacists must attend the accredited continuing education activities, register, complete and submit the CE session assessments and evaluations by accessing the online AACP Continuing Education Administration program, Learning Express CE (LECE). 

With the access code provided at the conclusion of each accredited CE, attendees must complete the activity assessment with a passing score of 75%, and the CE session evaluation for each session they are requesting continuing education credit. Attendees will have 45 days following the INnovate 2023 to complete the assessments and evaluations. Access to session activity assessments and evaluations in LECE will be denied after Friday, April 7, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. ET. CPE credit information will be electronically transmitted to CPE Monitor. Pharmacists should log in to their NABP e-profile to access information about their completed CPE and to print a valid statement of credit if needed. 

It is imperative that pharmacist attendees’ NABP e-Profile ID and birthdate (in MM/DD format) are correctly entered into their LECE profile and correspond with their NABP record. Failure to ensure this information is identical in both programs will jeopardize their earning CPE credits.
