What is CPE Monitor?
CPE Monitor is a national, collaborative effort by ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to track their completed continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits. It will also offer boards of pharmacy the opportunity to electronically authenticate the CPE units completed by their licensees, rather than requiring pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to submit their proof of completion statements (i.e. statements of credit) upon request or for random audits.

How CPE Monitor Works
Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will receive a unique identification number (ID) after setting up their e-Profile with NABP (see How to Register for CPE Monitor). Beginning in the latter part of 2011, pharmacist and pharmacy technician participants will provide their NABP e-Profile ID and date of birth (in MMDD format) to the ACPE-accredited provider when they register for a CPE activity or submit a request for credit. It will be the responsibility of the pharmacist or pharmacy technician to provide the correct information [i.e. ID and DOB (in MMDD format)] in order to receive credit for participating in a CPE activity.

The CPE Monitor system will 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. 

How to Register for CPE Monitor
Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are asked to obtain their NABP e-Profile ID now at http://www.ndsu.edu/fileadmin/templates/images/icon.external.gif); color: rgb(51, 102, 51); font-weight: bold; background-position: 100% 0%; background-repeat: no-repeat no-repeat; ">www.MyCPEmonitor.net to ensure their e-Profile is properly setup prior to implementation of CPE Monitor. In the latter part of 2011, the e-Profile ID will be required to receive credit for any ACPE-accredited CPE activities.
