Maximize your APC training experience with PACE Certification! Take advantage of this once a year opportunity to prepare for the PACE Exam in a live instructor-led class. Then, following the class, you can take the PACE Exam right there while you are onsite at APC or wait and take it later. Your choice!
Choose from 3 PACE Certification exam options:
Immediately following the prep class on a traditional paper exam. (Grading will take a few days and you will be notified via email.)
Immediately following the prep class on your own personal laptop. (Get results right away.)
Later, when you return to your office and feel ready to take the exam on-line.
You will have a total of 3 chances to take the 120 question, multiple choice exam, within 1 year of receiving access to the PACE Certification Portal.
TERMS: You will receive your PACE study materials when you register for the on-site PACE course, but access to the exam will not be granted until your payment is received in full. If you cancel your APC Conference registration for any reason, your PACE Certification will be transferred to the online version of the PACE Certification. No refunds will be given for PACE Certification.
