Welcome to the training on Pharmacy provided by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Jerry H. Hodge School of Pharmacy.

ACPE and NABP have implemented a new system to track completed CPE activities by pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. You must set up an eProfile ID with NABP and supply that ID and your DOB (MMDD).

Certificates for other accreditations may be printed after your post-test and evaluation are completed.
