ACE Monitor Training I

General Overview A.C.E Professional Training This course must be taken at an approved A.C.E. Professional Training Centre under an accredited A.C.E. trainer. The School or HEA Coordinator should contact their A.C.E. service provider for details regarding training opportunities. A.C.E Monitor Training For this course, students must complete the Training PACEs at an approved A.C.E. school, regional HEA office, or an approved area rep's house (where available). Please contact the ICCE Office to confirm approved schools. The School or HEA Coordinator should contact their A.C.E. service provider for details of the PACEs to be completed. Students taking either of these credits will no longer need to submit an essay. However, they must now complete the following in an approved A.C.E. school. Either  - 36 hours of service alongside the A.C.E. Professional Training or - 48 hours of service alongside the A.C.E Monitor Training PACEs. In each case the student should complete a minimum of six A.C.E. Training PACEs.  All Test results, moderation results and a signed affidavit by the approved A.C.E. school regarding the hours of service MUST be submitted to the ICCE Global office upon application for graduation, to be accepted for the certificate.  Please remember, if the A.C.E. Professional Training is undertaken, they may act as a Supervisor in an ACE school; if the A.C.E Monitor Training is undertaken, they may only act as a Monitor in an ACE school
