Easier CE Credit for Participants

UT CPE Online Learning Platform

Partnering with UT CPE also allows participants to easily and efficiently claim their own CE credit online through our online learning platform.  

No more attendance forms or paperwork, learners just visit the UT CPE Online Learning Platform to submit an online evaluation.  After a pharmacist submits an online evaluation, pharmacy credit will automatically upload to their individual CPE Monitor profile.  UT CPE will make this process smooth and effortless for Joint Sponsors!

The UT CPE online platform is not only useful for claiming CE credits, but it can also be used to house more comprehensive online courses that include pre/post assessments, downloadable course materials and easily viewable pre-recorded presentations.  This type of programming falls under Project Support Services (see CPE Accreditation Requirements & Fees).

Per ACPE Standards for Commercial Support, UT CPE does not enter into joint sponsorship with commercial interests (commercial interests are entities producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing healthcare goods or services consumed/used by patients; providers of clinical service directly to patients are not considered to be commercial interests).
