Where can I access free accredited pharmacy continuing education courses?

For the past three months my employees- two pharmacy technicians, have been taking free continuing education for pharmacy technicians courses to be abreast with the developments in the field. They are nearing completion of their courses upon which I will have to take free continuing education classes for a pharmacist. I have been wondering about free CEs for pharmacists. Can anyone offer advice on where I can get free accredited pharmacy continuing education courses?

Here are some of the websites offering free accredited CEs for pharmacists:

The sites mentioned above are exceptional places where you can get free pharmacy continuing education courses. I have taken a few of my pharmacy CEs at FreeCE. They are quite helpful in updating you on the must-know details in the contemporary pharmacy practice.

Some other sites provide CEs for pharmacists. First one is RxSchool. This website offers excellent pharmacy CEs that are accredited by the ACPE. You are required to register on this site before you can access their CEs and online learning tools. After logging in, RxSchool will keep tabs on your pharmacy CE scores/ credits and also send them to the pharmacists’ CPE monitor.

Second one is Power-Pak CE. Here you will access a vast pool of pharmacy CEs that will keep you abreast with the developments in the pharmacy field. There are several free CEs on offer at any given time. Moreover, there are regular exclusive discounts for paid pharmacy CEs.
