American Society of Administrative Professionals Professional Administrative Certification of Excellence (PACE)

Anne Marie DelPrincipe, instructor

Train for the credential that makes employers sit up and take notice.

The American Society of Administrative Professionals recognizes that being an Administrative Professional is more than a job. It is a profession. This is where the Professional Administrative Certification of Excellence (PACE) comes in.

Studies indicate that professionals who obtain a specialized credential are typically more in demand by employers, which gives them an edge in hiring, compensation, and promotions. Earning the PACE certification and placing the PACE designation after their name enables administrative assistants to demonstrate their depth of knowledge, expertise, and commitment. It positions them as highly credible professionals who are serious about their careers.

This program is broken down into four modules to help you sharpen the skills most valued by employers. Included in each module is a practice quiz to help you experience what the exam will be like:

In addition to these administrative skills, you will also learn the basics of Microsoft Office, including Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, which are valuable skills for administrative assistants.
