If your organization is not an ACE provider or has never had a course approved through ACE individual course/conference approval or the New Jersey CE Course Approval Program, you must complete a prequalification application. Learn more.
Submit these applications for course or conference approval. The last page of each application includes a checklist of required supporting documents. See the ACE Handbook individual course approval appendix for sample supporting documents, such as evaluations, certificates, promotional material, and attendance tracking methods.

How to complete and submit the applications
- Individual course applications must be submitted 90 days before the course date.
- Submit required documents (e.g., resume, bibliography, etc.) as individual attachments. Do not combine documents or application forms into one file.
- Respond to every question. If a question does not apply, enter “n/a” and explain.
- ACE accepts only electronic application submissions. Documents that are completed by hand will not be accepted, even if these are scanned and submitted electronically. Mailed or faxed applications will not be accepted.
- With the exception of the payment form, send completed applications and supporting documents by email to email@example.com.
- Payments must be mailed, faxed, or made by phone. For your security, do not email the fee worksheet and payment form with credit card information. Payments are nonrefundable. Applicants are responsible for sending the correct fee as overpayments will not be returned. Applicants from outside the United States must pay by money order or credit card.
- Providers of ACE approved individual courses or conferences may renew a course every two years. An email will be sent to the primary contact 120 days before the expiration date.
- CE providers must submit a renewal application and all required materials and fees at least 90 days before the expiration date or risk a lapse in approval.
- A new course/conference application is required when courses or conferences are more than 90 days past the expiration of their course or conference session approval period.
- Course material must meet current ACE standards when submitted for renewal. Courses or course materials may no longer meet current standards if standards have been updated since initial approval or last renewal. Providers are responsible for updating courses and materials to meet the current standards.
