No annual renewal certificate shall be issued to a pharmacist until such pharmacist shall have submitted proof to the Board that he has participated in not less than fifteen (15) clock hours of continuing education obtained through the satisfactory completion of an accredited program of continuing professional education during the previous calendar year. (Title 59, O.S., Chapter 8 § 364.)

The completion date of a CE program depends on whether the program was a live program or a correspondence course:

  1. If you attended a live program, the completion date is the date that you attended the program.
  2. If you participated in a correspondence course, these courses are not complete until you receive a certificate of completion from the provider with a dated certifying signature.  The following dates are accepted:
      • Date of authorized signature
      • Date issued / earned
      • Date exam processed
  3. New graduates are NOT exempt from reporting continuing education.  During the on-line renewal process, you will be required to list the name of the school of pharmacy you attended during the previous calendar year,  the dates you attended that school, and that you had 15 clock hours of continuing education.

Pharmacists and CE sponsors may use the following form to request evaluation and approval of a non-ACPE approved continuing education program.  Only Board approved or ACPE approved programs may be used for credit toward the required 15 hours of annual continuing education.
