ACE certification is global.

Since 2004, pest management professionals in the United States who do not have a higher degree in entomology have been able to earn a certification of great distinction - the Associate Certified Entomologist, or ACE. Earning your ACE does not make you an entomologist, only a degree from a university can do that. But an ACE is widely recognized as a mark of high achievement in education, training, and learning in the pest management community. Starting in 2014, the ACE credential became an option for pest management professionals around the world.
