NEW! ATTENTION - ACPE Credit Request Update
ACPE CREDIT REQUESTS MUST BE SUBMITTED TO DIA WITHIN 45 DAYS POST DATE OF PARTICIPATION OR ACPE CLAIMED CREDIT WILL NOT BE SUBMITTED TO THE CPE MONITOR
DIA is required by the ACPE to submit activity and participant information online via CPE Monitor™ within 45 days postdate of learner participation in the continuing pharmacy education (CPE) activity. Any ACPE credit requests submitted to DIA after the 45 day post CPE activity will not be submitted to the learner’s NABP e-Profile (effective January 1, 2015).
The CPE Monitor is a collaborative service from the ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), which allows CPE providers to authenticate, store, and streamline data reporting and compliance verification for participating boards of pharmacy. The CPE tracking system creates a direct link for sending ACPE claimed credit requests from DIA to ACPE, then onto the NABP. When requesting ACPE credit, learners must submit their NABP e-Profile ID and date of birth (MMDD). If you need to obtain your NABP e-Profile ID, please visit www.nabp.net.
