Professional Administrative Certification of Excellence (PACE)

Enroll in PACE Certification


ASAP recognizes that being an Administrative Professional is more than a job. It is a profession. That is why we offer the Professional Administrative Certification of Excellence (PACE).

The Value of Certification

Studies indicate that professionals who obtain a specialized credential are typically more in demand by employers, which gives them an edge in hiring, compensation, and promotions. Earning the PACE certification and placing the PACE designation after their name enables administrative professionals to demonstrate their depth of knowledge, expertise, and commitment. It positions them as highly credible professionals who are serious about their careers.

  • Certified individuals gain professional credibility and confidence.
  • Companies that hire certified individuals gain “stand out” employees who can help them meet their organizational goals, and
  • The public gains from the efficiency, innovation, and expertise of highly trained professionals.

The Road to Certification

Our PACE certification is a streamlined online learning program perfect for busy professionals. Through our digital training methods, you can learn quickly, easily and on your own schedule.

In addition, our PACE Prep Materials will help you approach certification strategically.


The program is broken down into four modules to help you sharpen the skills most valued by employers. Included in each module is a practice quiz to help you experience what the exam will be like.

  • Interpersonal Communications
  • Task and Project Management
  • Computer and Internet Technology 
  • Management Skills


This online “book” gives you a compact outline of the entire PACE learning process, including skills training itself. It takes you step-by-step through all critical skills and exam content in a clear, easy-to-understand format.
