Statements of Credit

Effective January 1, 2014, all continuing education credits will be recorded through CPE Monitor (see below).  We will no longer be printing Statements of Credit.

CPE Monitor

CPE Monitor is a national, collaborative effort by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists to keep track of their completed continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits. It also offers state boards of pharmacy the opportunity to electronically authenticate the CPE units completed by their licensees rather than requiring submission of proof of statements of credit upon request or completing random audits.

LUX Learning Management System

The Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences Department of Continuing Education and Professional Development implemented the LUX Learning Management System in February 2015.

LUX now manages all phases of the continuing education program - from registration through completion of evaluations - with secure, hosted software. 

LUX provides program participants with the ability to create and manage their own accounts, complete activities, and print certificates of attendance.

All ACPHS program participants must now create a personal LUX account, which includes your NABP #, your MM/DD of birth, and the name and address of your practice site if you are a preceptor.

You will then be able to register, receive your handouts, complete program evaluations and learning assessments all in one place. As soon as you have completed all activity requirements, your credits will automatically be submitted to CPE Monitor.

To establish your personal account, please log on to the ACPHS Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) System. Once you are there, please click the LUX Account Setup Instructions for step by step directions.

Click the LUX Evaluation Instructions for directions on how to complete evaluations at the end of a CE Program.

Registration and Handout Policy

Program registrations are now being accepted through the LUX Learning Management System only, and 0n-site registrations will no longer be accepted.

Speaker handouts will be e-mailed prior to the date of the Continuing Pharmacy Education Activity that you registered to attend.  All participants are welcome to bring their laptops or tablets and use the College's guest wireless network to view the speaker handouts.  We will no longer have printed copies available at registration.
