Do you have what it takes to become an ACE?
Are you a practicing pest management professional?
If so, join us at the Florida ACE Prep Course January 21-22, 2013 in Orlando, FL at the Florida Pest Management Association EXPO.
The prep course will offer training and CEU credits (FL and other states on request) from ACE certified entomologists, ESA members from the University of Florida, and from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. The Florida ACE Prep Course is a result of a request by the pest managemet industry to provide a review session to help test takers focus before taking the ACE exam. We have had participants from nine states attend our Prep Course since 2009 and can boast that 20% of all ACEs nationwide have attended our course. During the review, we will cover the following topics from the ACE Study Guide:
The ACE Prep Course is a review session to help prepare you for the Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE) exam offered by the Entomological Society of America. The Prep Course should not replace you studying for the exam on your own. Please see the links below for the ESA ACE practice test and study materials. Please visit http://www.entocert.org/ to find out more about the ACE program and the benefits it entails.
At the conclusion of the Prep Course, the participants will have the opportunity to take the online ACE exam with a Board Certified Entomologist (BCE) Proctor. Please indicate on your Florida Prep Course registration form if you will be able to provide a laptop computer for testing.
Note: The ACE exam is offered through ESA and costs $150. That fee must accompany your ACE application and be paid to ESA a minimum of 30 days prior to the exam date. Please do not send your ACE application or Fee to the University of Florida.
