Teach ACE programs your way

ACE curriculum or self-managed: the option is yours 

For more than a decade, ACE has empowered our customers in education to facilitate courses that help students and staff become ACE Certified.

Our traditional educational program includes free curriculum and a free desk copy for the facilitator teaching the course, with students typically ordering classroom and testing materials at a discount through their school's or facility's bookstore, or directly from ACE.

And that’s just one option: you can equip students and staff in whatever way works best for you. ACE offers self-paced/self-managed options in which students access an ACE portal and get certified on their own time.

Our packages are customizable to fit your specific needs. Do you have graduate students with degrees in kinesiology who only need to take the personal trainer certification exam? Or do you only need manuals and exercise materials? We’re happy to work with you to create an ACE program that fits you, your staff and students.

Leading schools choose ACE

Did you know that ACE is the partner of choice, in the rec center and in the classroom, for hundreds of schools, including Johns Hopkins, Penn State and the University of Southern California, to name only a few? View our complete list.
