I forgot my NCPA username, or I’m having issues logging in to the ThoughtSpot CE Portal. What should I do? 
If you already have an NCPA username, it is the email address associated with your NCPA account. If you can’t remember your username or password, click “Forgot Username” or “Forgot Password” on the ThoughtSpot CE Portal Login page. If you need assistance remembering your NCPA username, please email education@ncpa.org

What is my NABP (e-Profile ID) number?
An NABP e-Profile ID is generated when a pharmacist or pharmacy technician creates an e-Profile at www.nabp.net and is required to claim CE credits. Your e-Profile ID contains 4-10 numbers and is not your state license ID, NPI number, social security number, employee ID or phone number. If you need to create or look up your e-Profile ID, go to https://nabp.pharmacy/cpe-monitor-service/. Confirm that your NABP E-Profile Number and date of birth are linked to your NCPA profile on the CE Portal. To do this, log in to the ThoughtSpot CE Portal and click on the settings icon in the top right corner of the screen, then click “My Profile”. From here you can scroll down to confirm that your NABP E-profile number and date of birth are correctly documented.
