Standard  $599


Our Standard Program includes a core set of study materials, an exam voucher, access to experts in our ACE Resource Center, our 19-lesson Study Coach series, one online practice test and an exam review. We recommend this option for candidates who have significant education or experience in the field, or those who do not need visual aids or a guided study path.

In addition to everything included in our Standard Program, the Premium option features ACE Academy Elite, our interactive video-led study experience. The online platform divides all of your learning material into convenient lessons that incorporate interactive presentations led by ACE professionals, custom progress tracking, lesson quizzes, two practice tests and an exam review. We created ACE Academy Elite for candidates who want the full online university experience and those who perform best in a structured learning environment. And so far, the results are astounding. We've found that 87 percent of students who follow the entire ACE Academy Elite lesson plan pass the exam on their first attempt.
