The Course History is included for free with every type of CE Broker account (Basic, Professional and Concierge). You can use this tool to check your CE Compliance status prior to renewing your license. Use the Course History to stay on track and take the guesswork out of your CE process.
The Course History is a chronological listing of courses that have been reported to CE Broker. It includes courses posted by the educational provider and courses that may have self-reported yourself.
In the image below, you can see that your Course History will include the Course Name, Tracking #, Date Completed, who the course was submitted by, number of hours posted, the transcript name (since the Course History has the availability to track for multiple licenses) and you’ll see the Digital Storage option (available only for the Professional and Concierge Accounts).

December 31st marks the first renewal for Registered Pharmacy Technicians. You may already be very familiar with the license requirements and how renewal will work for you, but if not, we’ll explain the ins and outs of your continuing education process. Keep reading to learn how CE Broker and the Florida Department of Health relationship is relevant to you.
CE Broker– The Official Online Tracking System for the Florida Department of Health
When you go to renew your license on or before December 31st, 2014, the Florida Department of Health, Division of Quality Assurance, will check your records in CE Broker’s system. If you have not fully met your requirements, you will be redirected to CEBroker.com to report missing CE. If you have met your requirements, you will be deemed compliant and your license will renew with no problem. A CE Broker account can come in extremely handy for you as a licensee for many reasons.
There are three different types of accounts so you can choose what best meets your needs:
The Basic Account is a free account that allows you to search for Board-approved courses from providers, report completed CE and view your Course History to see what courses you have already completed.
The Professional Accountwill provide you with the complete CE package to make renewal as simple as possible. You will gain access to a CE Compliance Transcript to show what requirements you have met and what are left, customizable email notifications to alert you of reported CE and deadlines, HeartCard and other certification tracking, and much more.
The Concierge account is for the busy healthcare professionals who are in the market for a CE Expert personal assistant to report CE for them and personal updates on license information.
Registered Pharmacy Technician Requirements:
Requirements can be confusing so we want to give you a breakdown of your CE requirements so you don’t have any surprises when you are renewing your license. You are required to complete a total of 20 Continuing Education hours (12 Continuing Education hours if it is your first renewal cycle) each biennium in order to remain compliant.
2 Hours of Medication Errors
18 Hours of General (10 Hours of General if it is your first renewal cycle)
At least four (4) of the required 20 hours must be obtained as “live” continuing education. If you are in your first license renewal cycle, at least two of the required 12 hours must be obtained as “live” continuing education.
The two (2) hour Medication Errors requirement must be approved in advance by the Florida Board of Pharmacy and must be fulfilled with a single two (2) hour course.
ACPE course approval numbers for Registered Pharmacy Technicians will end with a “T”. The L in the ACPE approval number means the course is LIVE and the H in an ACPE approval number means the course is HOME STUDY.
For more information on the renewal process, you can visit the Florida Board of Pharmacy website and click on the “Renewal” tab at the top of the screen or you can simply click on the link above. If you want to renew your license through the Florida Department of Health, click on this link to be redirected to their website.

“The best way to manage CE Compliance. Anywhere, Anytime.”
We just released our new and improved iPhone App to make tracking your continuing education as simple as ever. Truly. The best part about the whole thing? It’s free to download. Just click on the picture above to get started downloading.
The typical day of a health professional is often crunched for time. Our app offers you a way to simplify the complicated, time-consuming license renewal process so that you can make time for what really matters to you. Now, as amazing as our new app is, it won’t quite perform your work for you… but it comes pretty close. With the app you can manage your continuing education from anywhere at the time most convenient for you. That may mean letting our app walk you through reporting your completed credits while on your lunch break, checking your compliance status via your CE Compliance Transcript while standing in line at bank, or even searching for last minute courses to fulfill any of your unmet requirements during any quick break you have throughout your busy work day. This is continuing education simplified.
The iPhone app is a playground of simplicity. There are so many tools you have access to. We’ll go through all the features with you here.
Ability to create a Basic Account right from within the App. When you first open the app, you will be prompted to either create a Basic Account or access an existing account. If you are either creating a Basic Account or accessing your existing account, you will find the option to upgrade from the app to a Professional and the charges will be sent to your iTunes account. No credit card information required. Easy, right?
Licensee Information Page. This page will include all of your license information; license number, profession, status, and renewal period. The license number section will include a drop down so you can choose to display information from multiple licenses. The best part about this page is the visual representation of your compliance status so you can see with a quick glance exactly where you stand in your renewal process.
CE Compliance Transcript Page. This will be available only to Professional and Concierge accounts. Your Transcript page will break down your required Subject Area hours, how many of those hours you have completed and how many of those hours are left for you to complete. If you have a Basic Account, you will find the option to upgrade to a Professional account. Again, all charges go to your iTunes account and no credit card information is required.
Course History Page. This page will display all of your reported course information, including class name, provider name and how many hours were awarded.
Course Search Page. Our app will access self-study courses only. To search for live courses, you can visit our website. Any classes you sign up for there will integrate seamlessly with your iTunes app account so you don’t have to report separately. You can customize the self-study course search by subject area. The course detail will then display the registration detail, including a clickable link to the provider’s website (if provided by them).
Report CE Page. Of course, if you take a class from an educational provider approved directly by the Board, they are required to report to us within 90 days. That class will show up in your Course History and you will be notified as soon as it is recorded if you have a Professional or Concierge account. If you choose to self-report, all account types (Basic, Professional and Concierge) will all have that option. All you will need to do is enter in your course information as prompted. Once you have completed that, you get to one of the coolest features of the app: “Attach a Photo.” Seriously. You get to just snap a shot of your certification from your iPhone and it will be stored in your Course History so you can access it anytime you need to from our site if you have a Professional or Concierge account.
Account Info Page. This page will list all of your personal account information: Name, Profile Tracking Number, Account Type, Account Expiration Date, License Number, Compliance Status and your Profession.
Concierge Account Perks. If you are using our Concierge Account, you will have the option to select “Automatic Concierge Service.” Just take a picture of your CE activity and submit. Your Concierge Account Manager will be notified to post your CE. We will do all the reporting for you. You will be notified as soon as that is complete!
Pending Attachment Option.When you are reporting courses from your account on our website, you will see the option titled “Mobile App.” This will trigger a “pending attachment” notification within your iPhone app. Next time you login to your iPhone app, you will see a red circle with a pending attachment in the lower right corner. Click that notification and simply snap a picture of your document to be stored.
