Jump to the Head of the Class with the PACE Advantage

April 3, 2018


The Administrative Professional role has evolved exponentially over the past few years—and it’s vital that every admin pro evolves with it. That’s why ASAP created the Professional Administrative Certification of Excellence (PACE): an educational certification program to help ensure your continued career growth, job security, and success.

PACE is a current and comprehensive learning option that will help you hone your skills and increase your influence and authority. Built to complement any existing certifications you may already have, the program is designed to be flexible enough to fit into any admin’s busy work schedule. 

There are no eligibility requirements or stacks of textbooks you have to read to earn your PACE. Everything you need to become PACE Certified is available online through a user-friendly portal. You can access your PACE materials anytime, anywhere, including:

  • A digital copy of the PACE Study Guide
  • On-demand training videos for four Proficiency Modules
  • Sample PACE Exam questions
  • Digital tools to track CEUs for recertification
  • A study plan and schedule

The four proficiency modules—Interpersonal Communications, Task and Project Management, Computer and Internet Technology, and Management Skills—build on skills you already have, while giving you access to essential areas of study in which you may wish to gain proficiency.

The core components and up-to-date breadth of knowledge included in PACE have led colleges with adult education programs and corporate America alike to embrace the PACE program. Getting PACE certified isn’t just the next step in your career—it’s your invitation to join a community of credentialed administrative professionals around the world, all equally committed to excellence! 

PACE Certification materials are accessible as long as your enrollment stays current. You can access the study materials on any device—no special software required. Moreover, PACE’s flexible timeline and process allows you to move through the program at your own speed, and on your own time.

You have up to one year after your enrollment date to take the 120-question Exam, which you can take up to three times, without re-enrolling. Upon completion, you will be designated as a PACE professional—and receive a handsome, frame-ready certificate that cites your new level of expertise.

Becoming PACE certified means taking a huge step forward in your career—and will set you apart from the competition. It will allow you to:

  • Learn and advance in your profession
  • Establish your credentials
  • Demonstrate your achievements and professionalism
  • Gain recognition among your peers for your knowledge, determination, and drive
  • Be viewed as a more valuable employee, expert resource, and confident leader
  • Feel a profound sense of pride when you place the PACE designation after your signature

Take the next step in your career and gain the recognition you deserve by joining the tens of thousands of accredited business professionals who are formally recognized as the best in their field. Get PACE Certified and take your place at the table as a PACE professional today!
