HHS COVID-19 Vaccine Guidance for Immunizers
HHS COVID-19 vaccine guidance requires pharmacists, and other immunizers, to maintain their immunization qualifications by completing a minimum of two hours of ACPE-accredited immunization related to continuing pharmacy education during each state licensing period. This requirement may be met by taking one, two-hour home-study or live CE activity or it may be comprised of time increments totaling 2 hours. Pharmacists must also maintain a current certificate in basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). These are included in the current requirements for immunizing pharmacists in the State of Vermont.

ACPHS Learning Management System
The ACPHS Learning Management System (LMS) manages all phases of the continuing education program - from registration through completion of evaluations - with secure, hosted software.
Our LMS provides program participants with the ability to create and manage their own accounts, complete activities, and print certificates of attendance.
* * * ALL ACPHS program participants must create a personal LMS account. * * *
In order to create a personal LMS account, you will need your NABP #, your MM/DD of birth, and the name and address of your practice site if you are a preceptor.
You will then be able to register, receive your handouts, complete program evaluations and learning assessments all in one place. As soon as you have completed all activity requirements, your credits will automatically be submitted to CPE Monitor.
To establish your account ...
- Log on to the ACPHS Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) System.
- Click the ACPHS LMS Account Setup Instructions for step by step directions.
- Click the ACPHS LMS Evaluation Instructions for directions on how to complete evaluations at the end of a CE Program.
Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences Office of Continuing Education and Professional Development will ensure the safety and security of its website and learning management system to maintain confidentiality and guard against the breach or dissemination of personal and private information.
Registration and Handout Policy
Program registrations are now being accepted through the ACPHS Learning Management System only, and on-site registrations will no longer be accepted.
Speaker handouts will be e-mailed prior to the date of the Continuing Pharmacy Education Activity that you registered to attend. All participants are welcome to bring their laptops or tablets and use the College's guest wireless network to view the speaker handouts. We will no longer have printed copies available at registration.
CPE Monitor and Statements of Credit
CPE Monitor is a national, collaborative effort by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists to keep track of their completed continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits.
It also offers state boards of pharmacy the opportunity to electronically authenticate the CPE units completed by their licensees rather than requiring submission of proof of statements of credit upon request or completing random audits.
ACPE policy states that paper and/or electronic statements of credit are not longer required to be distributed directly to learners as proof of ACPE credit. This official record of credit is located on the learner's e-profile in CPE Monitor. Printed copies of statements will no longer be distributed by Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.
