What is PACE?

ASAP’s Professional Administrative Certification of Excellence (PACE) is an accreditation that tests the breadth of your professional knowledge and qualifies you to proudly place the PACE designation after your signature. It was developed to recognize, validate and certify the knowledge and skills of today’s administrative professionals whose expertise and contributions in the workplace often go unrecognized and unrewarded.

Being an Administrative Professional is more than your job, it’s your profession. That’s why getting PACE certified is an important step forward in your career.

Event Information

  • APC registration confirmation including your attendance to the live review of four PACE Certification modules with the trainers who wrote the Study Guide.

“In addition to providing an educational format to increase my knowledge and skill levels, adding the PACE Letters after my name will boost my credibility and respect factor — not to mention the career opportunities it can help open.”

Sarah Beattie, PACE, Executive Assistant at Lee Financial

“Being PACE Certified shows management that I am serious about my career and now I am more knowledgeable in all areas relating to my job!”

Kimberly Maine, PACE, Mission Support Assistant

“Completing the PACE program made me feel accomplished, and I now proudly display the PACE certification seal on my LinkedIn profile. I believe this at least partly responsible for the number of new connections that are seeking me out with career growth opportunities.”

Monica Yanda, PACE, Executive Assistant
