Professional Acknowledgment for Continuing Education (P.A.C.E.®) is an administrative system established to stimulate and serve as the quality assurance mechanism for continuing education programs offered to clinical laboratory professionals by ASCLS constituent societies, laboratory industry, government agencies, hospitals and education organizations.

ABSA offers a number of opportunities for professionals to acquire contact hours, including distance learning courses (webinars), pre-conference courses associated with our annual conference, Review Course, and a bi-annual Principles and Practices in Biosafety Course.

The accrual of contact hours is based on contact time for any given course, completion of pre/post assessments, assignments, and evaluations. One P.A.C.E.® contact hour is worth 60 minutes of instructional time in the course.
