Professional Acknowledgment for Continuing Education (P.A.C.E.®) is an administrative system serving as the quality assurance mechanism for continuing education programs offered to clinical laboratory professionals. P.A.C.E.® is of benefit to continuing education providers and the laboratory professionals who participate in the programs they provide.
Participants in P.A.C.E.®-approved educational sessions have confidence in the quality of the program. P.A.C.E.® continuing education contact hours satisfy continuing education requirements for federal regulations, state licensure, certification agencies and employers.
Educational programs may be in a number of different formats — from large, multiple-day annual meetings to self-instructional material on CDs, journal articles or websites.
