30 hours of continuing education are required the two years prior to renewal.
- One (1) hour of Continuing Education (CE) must be on preventing medication errors
- Two (2) hours must be "live" CE. Pharmacists may acquire two live CE credits for attending a Board of Pharmacy Public Meeting in its entirety (not to exceed 4 CE credits per renewal period). A CE is considered “live” if it offers the ability for the participant to have real-time interaction with the presenter. Programs approved by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) that are designated by the letter “L” in the course identification number are considered “live.”
ACPE-approved courses pharmacists (only) end in the letter “P”.
