ACE CEUs

ACE CEU Credits

ACEs must submit Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every time they renew. In many cases these are the same credits that you would submit to your state or regional governing body to renew your applicator's license.

Current rules are that ACEs must submit a minimum of 18 CEUs that were earned in the three years prior to renewal. For example, if you are renewing for the years 2015-2017, your CEUs would have been earned in the years 2012-2014.

18 CEUs are required for ACE renewal.

ACE-International Code of Ethics

ACE-International Code of Ethics

The Code of Ethics is the same for the International ACE as it is for the US-based ACE. The reason, of course, is because ethical behavior knows no boundaries.

The Code is designed to establish a standard of ethical conduct for the pest management professional. The Code establishes a set of responsibilties to whom the ACE or ACE applicant owes support, including the public, fellow professionals, employers and clients, society at large, and the profession of pest management.

Renewing ACE

Renewing ACE

There are 4 parts to renewing your ACE certification:

1) Fees:  Renewals are for a 3-year calendar period. Save money on your ACE by being an ESA member at the time of renewal. Renewal fees are shown here.

2) PCO license:  ACEs must submit a copy of a current state, federal, or tribal pesticide applicator's license at the time of renewal. The license must allow the applicator to apply pesticides without supervision, or whatever the highest level of license is in your area.
