PACE™ Guide for Providers
Welcome to the PACE online application! To retain the valued CCM® credential, board-certified case managers must earn 80 hours in continuing education every five years, or re-take the challenging CCM exam. PACE is a simple, streamlined path for organizations to quickly reach case managers with pre-approved workshops, webinars, and continuing education coursework. Please refer to our PACE Guide for complete information about PACE, including details about the requirements & instructions on submitting a PACE application. Review our PACE Brochure, which highlights the benefits of pre-approval.
If you have already submitted a PACE course in our system, simply login to your account to submit new applications, manage your course locations, dates and times, and check the status of your applications.
To renew a course, please select "My PACE Courses." You will only have the option to renew your course(s) if you have previously submitted courses through our online PACE application. You may download our PACE seal of approval on your pre-approved course promotional materials.
IMPORTANT: After receiving your approval letter from the Commission, you must make sure that the certificates issued reflects the correct dates, approval statement, and activity codes/approval numbers issued by the Commission.
