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.

The ACE-I exams will be in English with no translation options. For ACE-I there will be two exams. The ACE Core Exam will cover most of what is found on the content outline for the U.S.A. version, but any questions about pesticide safety will be stripped and any questions on the U.S.A. version that deal with laws or regulations in the United States will be removed from the exam. This will drop the exam down to approximately 140 questions. A second exam–The ACE-I Pesticide Safety Exam–will also be required for ACE-I certification. This exam will by approximately 30 questions long.
