How to Request Continuing Education(CE) Course Approval

If you know or have any doubt that a CE course that you have taken or want to take is not approved by the Board, you should request to have the course reviewed and approved by the Board. You must use the DELPROS online portal to request approval of the CE course(s) through a Service Request. For more information on how to submit courses for approval or many other types of service requests for this profession, see the Pharmacy Service Requests webpage.

It is important to have all of your course documentation available as you must upload the information in the Service Request application.

 

Continuing Education Requirement

The amount of continuing education (CE) that you are required to complete depends on when your license was issued during the full licensure period. If it is your first renewal, you are required to complete:

  • 1.25 hours for each month between the initial date of licensure and the biennial renewal date

Active Pharmacist licensees must complete 30 hours of approved CE during each full licensure renewal period between October 1 to September 30 even-numbered years (2020-2022, etc.) and must include the following:
