You must complete an assessment that will indicate your current skill level in several areas. This assessment is called ESEE — Essential Skills for Employment and Education.
Step 2: Learn To Learn
In order to participate in ACE Distance courses, all students must complete Learn to Learn (L2L). Learn to Learn is a 20-hour course that will introduce you to online learning and help you to decide if this is the right learning approach for you.
