The idea of getting all your required CE credits for free is enticing, especially given the plethora of resources available online. But is it really as simple as it sounds?

The Allure of freeCE Credits

The concept of free CE credits is naturally appealing. Who wouldn’t want to fulfill their professional requirements without spending a dime? A quick search online will reveal numerous websites and platforms offering free CE courses. These can be a mix of webinars, articles, and interactive modules designed to help you stay updated with the latest practices and innovations in pharmacy.

However, while the idea is appealing, the reality is often more complex. Quality, accredited free CE can be found, but ensuring they meet all your accreditation needs and state requirements is another matter altogether.

The Hidden Costs of Free CE

Time and Effort

Finding free CE courses that are legitimately accredited and applicable to your specific state’s requirements can be time-consuming. The internet is a vast place, and sifting through many websites to find suitable CE involves significant effort. This time could be better spent focusing on your practice or personal development.

Accreditation and Compliance Risks

One of the biggest risks with free CE courses is ensuring they are properly accredited. Each state board of pharmacy has specific requirements for what constitutes acceptable CE credit. If you inadvertently complete courses that are not accredited or recognized by your state board, you might find yourself scrambling to find additional credits at the last minute. Worse, you could face penalties, such as fines or even having your license placed on inactive status, which could disrupt your professional practice.

Quality and Relevance

Not all free CE courses are created equal. Some may not be up to the high standards required for meaningful professional development. Additionally, courses that are sponsored by commercial entities might carry biases or push specific products, which could undermine the educational value. Ensuring that the content is relevant, high-quality, and unbiased is crucial for your professional growth.
