ACPHS offers ongoing professional development training known as continuing pharmacy education (CPE) courses for pharmacists and health professionals to keep them current and informed of the latest developments in their respective fields.

Goal and Mission Statements
To promote the continuing education and professional development of pharmacists in all practice settings by providing learning opportunities that promote optimal patient care outcomes related to medication use and medication safety and to meet applicable accreditation standards and licensure requirements.
To provide high quality, varied continuing education and professional development activities that promote knowledge of pharmacy practice and medication use as well as application of new skills and practice advancement for pharmacists.
Policies and Procedures
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.

Payment and Registration Information
Online registration is only available for those wishing to register using a credit card. Credit cards are charged in real time. Any interested participant not paying by credit card should mail his or her completed registration form with a check or voucher enclosed. Please do not fax a registration form with the intent to mail a check at a later date or to bring payment to the program. For on-site registrations, ONLY checks or vouchers will be accepted. We cannot pre-register a participant for any program without payment by credit card, check, or voucher per the process outlined above.
In an effort to be more environmentally conscious, the Office of CEPD does not print extensive handouts. Speaker handouts are e-mailed to registered participants prior to the program. A very limited number of handouts are available on the day of the program for on-site registrants only. All participants are welcome to bring their laptops or tablets and use the College's guest wireless network.
The Office of Continuing Education and Professional Development does not print and mail our program brochures. All brochures are sent via e-mail. If you would like to be added to our e-mail list or if you would like to continue receiving them via the U.S. Postal Service, please e-mail Lori Kline at or phone her at 518-694-7231.
