Intuit announced the launch of a new Advanced Continuing Education (ACE) program to help Advanced Certified ProAdvisors grow their practice and maintain their advanced status.

The new ACE program, to debut at the QuickBooks-centric small business conference Scaling New Heights May 22-25, will ensure Advanced ProAdvisors retain their status without the need to retake advanced exams annually.

Effective May 22, all QuickBooks Advanced Certified ProAdvisors for both QBO and QB Desktop must complete nine CPE credits of ACE-approved training within three years of getting Advanced QuickBooks Certified, and then every three years after that.

“Launching our Advanced Continuing Education program at Scaling New Heights is designed to reinforce our commitment to our most elite Advanced Certified ProAdvisors,” stated Chris Hamilton, leader of the Global QuickBooks ProAdvisor Program. “We recognize there are many eager Advanced ProAdvisors who want the opportunity to invest in their educational expertise instead of renewing their status yearly. ACE is the program that allows them to grow their practice in an epic way. We encourage those that are applicable to register and earn their ACE courses in time for October when the reporting effectively begins.”

ACE-approved training includes live webinars and classroom events developed and administered by Advanced Certified ProAdvisors who are pre-approved as ACE sponsors. The reporting system will be available in October 2016.
