AACE Launches Certelligence


7 December 2016 – Morgantown, WV, USA – AACE International’s Certification Board has announced that the AACE certification module is now open and ready to receive certification and recertification applications.

161207-pmwj53-aace-logoAccording to the AACE news release, for the past 13 months AACE staff has worked with software leader ACGI to configure their cloud-based Credentialing Management System – known as Certelligence – to automate and streamline AACE’s most critical certification business functions. Unlike the old system, Certelligence has specifically configured each application based on minimum eligibility requirements. Everything provided from employment date ranges to letter of recommendations has meaning and will determine if the application can be submitted for review. Although the system is robust and sophisticated, it is easy to use.

The new system also features a centralized profile menu to enhance the user’s experience by:

  • Making an initial application that allows eligibility verification documentation uploads.
  • Providing recertification activity (for three years), that is ultimately used as the application to recertify.
  • Providing a certification overview to keep abreast of when a certification was first given or when it will expire.
  • Accessing the directory of all certificants.

As with all new systems, it will take some time to learn how to do something or where to find something. Therefore, they have created a library of tutorials to show how to make an application and how to respond to requests. They have also created several handbooks as a guide to understand the new system’s terms and phrases, writing a technical paper and recertification program options. Visit the Certelligence website to learn more.
