Important Information for Pharmacists and Technicians:
CPE credits for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are now reported to CPE Monitor. All pharmacists and technicians should report their E-profile ID numbers and PINs to their local AHEC so the numbers can be uploaded to insure credits are reported correctly. We cannot issue CPE credit to anyone after January 1, 2013, without following this new procedure.
If you have not already done so, to obtain your e-Profile number, go to www.mycpemonitor.net to establish your e-Profile and to be assigned an NAPB e-Profile ID number. You can enter your own ID number and PIN at MyAHEC. Edit your profile to include these numbers. If you haven’t created a profile at MyAHEC, you will need to do that and add these numbers with your other information. Below are the fields where these numbers should be entered. If you need help with this, contact Brenda Boykin, Area L AHEC, at (252) 972-6958.
- License Type: choose CPE Monitor, AGD, LCSW, etc. (choose CPE monitor)
- License No. for CPE Monitor: NABP e-Profile ID – 6-7 digit # from NABP
- License Pin for CPE Monitor: birth-MMDD 4digits (ex: 0630 if June 30)
Certificates will no longer be mailed to you but can be printed through your CPE Monitor Account. You can access your CPE Monitor Account through the NABP website or contact NABP Customer Service at (847) 391-4406.
You should always check your record in CPE monitor two weeks after attending an Area L AHEC CE event to be sure that your credits have been added. Corrections can only be made within 60 days of attending an event.
