What is the difference between ACPE, non-ACPE, and IPCE activities?

An ACPE activity is a continuing education (CE) course offered by an Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE)-accredited provider. It is accepted by all boards of pharmacy in the United States and also by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB).

Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credit is a learning activity for health care teams. Members from 2 or more professions learn together to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes. These activities are accredited by the Joint Accreditation organization, of which ACPE is a founding member.

Non-ACPE activities are CE credits that are not accredited by ACPE or the Joint Accreditation organization (for IPCE) but are typically board-approved activities. They may not be accepted by all boards. These activities do not automatically upload to CPE Monitor, but Plus plan users can manually add the activity information to their account.

NABP staff are not able to add, change, or delete any ACPE or IPCE activities on your CPE Monitor transcript. You must contact the continuing pharmacy education (CPE) provider to make these changes.
