Frequently Asked Questions

During the year, we offer a variety of ways for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to earn continuing education credits to maintain existing competency and to develop new competencies. The methods for earning CE credits include live seminars, live teleconferences, web-based courses, and independent-study courses.

You can also visit the UT Advanced Studies in Pharmacy website for additional offerings of both Live and Home CE that are co-sponsored by the University of Tennessee.

All of the following continuing education activities are approved for CE credit in the majority of those states, including Tennessee, requiring proof of continuing education for re-licensure as a pharmacist or re-certification as a pharmacy technician.

The CE requirement for pharmacists licensed in Tennessee is 30 hours every two years, renewed on a staggered monthly basis. PTCB certified technicians must complete 20 hours of CE every two years, including one hour of law (ACPE number ending in "03").
