CPE Monitor, a national, collaborative effort by ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists and technicians to track their completed CPE credits, went into effect on January 1, 2013.  IPhA, as an ACPE-accredited provider, is required to report pharmacist CPE credit using this tracking system.  Pharmacist participants must provide their NABP e-Profile Identification Number and date of birth (in MMDD format) when they register for a CPE activity or complete activity evaluations.  It will be the responsibility of the pharmacist to provide the correct information (e-Profile Identification Number and Date of birth in MMDD Format).  If this information is not provided, NABP and ACPE prohibit IPhA from issuing CPE Credit.  Online access to their inventory of completed credits will allow pharmacists to easily monitor their compliance with CPE requirements and print statements of credit.  Therefore, IPhA will not provide individual printed statements of credit to pharmacists.  For additional information on CPE Monitor, including e-Profile set-up and its impact on pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, go to
