This is the first online course I have taken with ACE- the video is not of the greatest quality and the talking was distorted. Very annoying and frustrating to listen to.

Complete waste of money. I was excited and hoping for good examples of how to use training equipment. Instead all the lecture was about was.. this is a soft ball best used for catching, this is a hard ball best used for bouncing. You don't say? Absolutely zero new information was gained. I'm so disappointed with the Ace certification standards. I could have saved my $500 and learned more information just googling. All of Aces information is so out dated and basic. Would NEVER recommend Ace to anyone for certification. It's pretty much a joke
