Free Member Registration
Some live webinars are free due to educational grants provided by pharmaceutical companies. On such occasions, freeCE is able to broadcast the activity free of charge. Each free activity has a limited amount of seats for free members that can be reserved due to technical restrictions.
Every live, free activity becomes available for free member registration at 1:00 am ET, one (1) week prior to the webinar broadcast date. Due to the limitation of free member seat availability, the seats fill up extremely fast and are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Additional seats are then opened at 1:00 am ET on the Monday of that webinar’s broadcast week.
Every free, live activity becomes available for free member registration at 1:00 am ET, one (1) week prior to the webinar broadcast date.

CPE Monitor is a national, collaborative effort by ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to track their completed continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits. It will also offer boards of pharmacy the opportunity to electronically authenticate the CPE units completed by their licensees, rather than requiring pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to submit their proof of completion statements (i.e. statements of credit) upon request or for random audits.
