It was another successful year for the ACE program at the PCT School!
Our passing rate continued to be high among participants who took the exam.
At the 2020 PCT School, 11 participants took the review course. Nine of those participants took the ACE test, and five participants passed the exam.
In 2020, 100% of the participants who had committed to the prep course for at least 6 months in advance passed the exam.
What makes our program unique?
Unlike any other ACE prep course offered in the country, our goal is to help participants through the process from completing the Entomological Society of America (ESA) application to passing the exam which includes matching participants with mentors for the entire process.
Dana McDuffie, former NCPMA president, participated in the 2020 ACE Prep Course and Exam and shared her experience with NCPMA.
I reached out to my ACE program mentor, and she guided me through the entire process," Dana said.
"Once I submitted my NC ACE Prep course application, she made arrangements to travel to my office and meet with me to start the process beginning with the ACE Application, letters of reference, etc. She stayed in touch with me on a regular basis and guided me on areas to focus including studying and administering pop quizzes," she said. "I can assure anyone interested in taking the ACE exam that this program is exceptional, and I would not have been able to focus and successfully pass the ACE exam without going through the North Carolina ACE prep course."
