Continuing Education FAQ

Select educational programs delivered during Virtual Pharmacy Education 2021 are eligible for continuing pharmacy education credit. Meeting attendees will have up to 45 days following Virtual Pharmacy Education 2021 to complete the required components for the live CE activities. Registrants may obtain home study CE credit for select pre-recorded sessions released during the meeting. Home study CE activities will expire three months following the meeting.  

AACP is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. 

How do I obtain continuing education credit for live CE sessions presented at the meeting?

In order to obtain live CPE credit, registrants must attend the live educational sessions delivered via Zoom on the Event Rebels platform and complete the CE session evaluations via the online AACP Continuing Education Administration software program, Learning Express CE (LECE). 


With the Access Code provided at the conclusion of each CE session, attendees must complete the activity evaluation for each session they are requesting continuing education credit. 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. The deadline to complete the CE activity evaluations for live CPE credit is Sunday, September 5, 2021.
How do I obtain continuing education credit for pre-recorded CE sessions?
 

How do I obtain continuing education credit for pre-recorded CE sessions?


Meeting registrants must view the pre-recorded presentations on the Event Rebels platform and complete the post-assessment and evaluation via Learning Express CE. A passing score of 75% is required to obtain CPE credit. Registrants will need the access code provided in the presentation recording to complete the activity evaluations. All pre-recorded home study CPE activities will expire three months following the meeting on January 22, 2022. CPE credit information will be electronically transmitted to CPE Monitor upon the successful completion of the post-assessment and evaluation. 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. 


Note: 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. 
If you have questions regarding CE before or after the meeting, please contact Dorothy Novilus, associate director of continuing professional development, at 703-739-2330 ext. 1027.
