Comparing ACE approval types
There are two types of ACE approval: Provider and individual course/conference.
Individual course approval
Individual course/conference approval evaluates individual courses and conferences and approves them for licensees to earn continuing education credit.
Small providers with one to five courses
Provider approval evaluates organizations for their ability to provide high-quality course offerings for social work continuing education credit.
Larger providers with many courses and conferences
Joint Accreditation for health care CE
Through the Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education CE providers may be simultaneously accredited to provide continuing education activities in the professions of medicine, nursing, optometry, pharmacy, psychology, and social work through a single, unified application process.
All CE providers in the ACE program must adhere to the standards outlined in the ACE Handbook.
