The PACE Certificate of Achievement is a multi-skill academic language certificate. Upon completion, students are able to use cultural knowledge and communication skills to facilitate their use of English in academic, vocational, and personal contexts. This certificate formally recognizes the acquisition of the English language necessary to succeed in college-level courses and compete successfully in the labor market. The PACE Certificate of Achievement also assists community employers in determining the level of English language qualifications and vocational skills of potential employees.
