Become A Specialist

Becoming a specialist can help you gain the knowledge and skills you need to take your expertise and your business to the next level, and make a greater impact on people's health and well-being. We created a wide range of specialist programs in collaboration with industry-leading experts—and partnered with exceptional, like-minded organizations—in order to bring you the best specialist programs available.

Specialist programs are approved for up to 25 hours of continuing education by ACE and, depending on the specialty, also approved for continuing education hours by the American Association of Medical Assistants, ACSM, the California Board of Registered Nursing, the Commission on Dietetic Registration, NASM, NCSF and NFPT.

*A February 2016 study of 2,000 health and fitness professionals revealed a 20% salary increase for part-time professionals who have completed an ACE Specialist Program.
