Advance Your Career and Your Company’s Reputation with ACE

There’s a lot of competition in the card manufacturing and personalization/fulfillment industry, but the ACE-M, ACE-P and ACE-A designations will set you apart. It’s awarded to people with a broad and detailed knowledge of the industry who successfully complete a rigorous exam. As the demand for experts grows, continual training and expertise are crucial for individuals – and companies – to stay ahead of the crowd.


Education to Elevate Your Marketing, Sales and Customer-Facing Teams

ICMA has expanded its Advanced Card Education (ACE) program to include a new virtual training series. The first training being launched is ACE-Commercial training. The purpose of ACE-Commercial training is to provide sales, marketing, customer service and other key personnel at your company with the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of card manufacturing.

Unlike ICMA’s other ACE programs, which require students to pass an exam to achieve a corresponding certification, ACE-Commercial is more qualitative and not as quantitative – the objective is not to teach the application of concepts in a card plant. It was designed to provide employees in customer-facing roles with high-level card industry education without the need to enroll in certification-level curriculum.
