Are you ready to become an ACE and be recognized for your wealth of insect knowledge?

In today's increasingly complex and highly specialized economy, credentials are important. The Entomological Society of America, long the industry leader in certification through its Board Certified Entomologist (BCE) program, also offers a certification option geared specifically toward the pest management industry. People become ACEs for a variety of reasons, but one thing is clear – the ACE program has become the benchmark for professionalism in the pest management industry.

Take the ACE Prep course to kick off your studies to prepare for this arduous exam, or if you are ready to test, take the prep course as a last-minute review. VPMA proctors the exam the day after the Prep Course for those ready to sit for the exam.
