ACE program fees are affordable and offer a solid value for the participants. The fees are set by the ESA Certification Corporation Governing Board as part of the annual budgeting process. The fees are currently as follows:
This fee includes your first year of certification, your online examination, as well as the processing of your application. If you become an ACE after October 1st of the current year, your application fee also includes the following year's certification.
Each year an ACE will be required to submit his/her renewal application with a copy of his/her current Pesticide Applicators license. Failure to submit this renewal in a timely fashion will result in the revocation of the ACE's certification status and the loss of all the rights and privileges associated with that certification. Reinstatement may require re-application to the program.
This nominal fee is assessed in the case where an applicant does not pass the examination on the first attempt and needs to retake the test. The fee will be assessed each time that the test needs to be re-administered.
