What are the requirements for proof of completion for CEs?

PTCB has the discretion to audit the recertification eligibility of a PTCB certificant at any time. PTCB requires that you provide continuing education (CE) proof of completion:

  • When applying for renewal with CE activities earned from non-ACPE-accredited providers.
  • If your renewal application has been returned because PTCB could not verify completion of all CE requirements.

Acceptable documentation includes the following:

CPE Monitor Transcript

If available, PTCB prefers that you provide your CPE Monitor transcript rather than individual certificates of completion as documentation. Instructions for obtaining a copy of your CPE Monitor transcript can be found via the NABP website

Example document 

If your completed CE hours are not reporting to your CPE Monitor transcript, your CE provider may have an option for you to either download a transcript, exam history, or certificates of completion. For faster processing, please only provide certificates of completion for the CEs that have not been reported to your CPE Monitor transcript. 

NOTE: ACPE-accredited education providers have up to 60 days to report your CEs to CPE Monitor if you provided your e-Profile ID and the month and date (MMDD) of your date of birth at the time you registered for the course. If your CEs do not appear in CPE Monitor, please contact your education provider.

CE Certificates of Completion and Statements of Credit


Transcripts with information for multiple CE activities may be submitted if they include:

  • Your name
  • Program titles
  • Provider name
  • Completion dates
  • # of hours awarded for each program 
  • ACPE Universal Activity Number (UAN) for each program, if applicable.
