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 after PTCB could not verify the completion of all CE requirements.
  • If your last renewal application has been randomly selected for an audit.

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.

CE Certificates of Completion and Statements of Credit

Individual Certificates or Statements

  • If you submit individual certificates or statements as your CE completion documentation, you must ensure the documentation meets these requirements:

    • Your name
    • Program title
    • Provider name
    • Completion date
    • # of hours awarded 
    • ACPE Universal Activity Number (UAN), if applicable.
