CPE Monitor/Records of Participation in CPE Activities

I recently participated in/completed an activity but it is not listed in CPE Monitor. When will my records transfer?

  • Records of participation are automatically uploaded daily into CPE Monitor
  • There is an unspecified validation period within the CPE Monitor system. PTCE has no control over this validation timeframe
  • Occasionally, the CPE Monitor system undergoes routine maintenance and during this time, no records of participation can be uploaded. Once the maintenance period ends, your records of participation will be automatically uploaded within 24 hours
  • To ensure that your records will automatically upload into CPE Monitor, please confirm that you have:
    1. Obtained an NABP e-Profile ID from the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP)
    2. Entered it into your account on this Website
    3. Entered your date of birth in your account
  • If you have not followed these steps above, PTCE cannot automatically upload your record(s) of participation into CPE Monitor. Each pharmacist is responsible for obtaining an NABP e Profile ID number and ensuring your profile on this Website is accurate and updated in a timely manner. Once your account is updated, your records will be included in a weekly batch upload
