We care about your success and are committed to providing you with high quality online courses and support to enable you to reach your goal. To help you succeed, we have developed an Assessment and Orientation course called Learn to Learn. All ACE Distance students must complete the Learn to Learn course BEFORE enrolling in an ACE Distance course.

This 20 hour course will help you make sure you have the necessary personal, computer and academic skills to successfully participate in ACE Distance courses. There is also material that will teach you how to be an effective online learner. You can proceed through the material at your own pace.

The instructor, Mary Jonik, will help you to develop an Individualized Training Plan (ITP) based on your goal. Mary is also available to help you by providing advice, follow up and encouragement in partnership with your online teachers once you have registered in the ACE course of your choice.

The Learn to Learn course is intended to help you determine if on line learning is the right choice for you. It is a process to get you started as quickly as possible taking the right courses. To be sure you're ready, register for the Learn to Learn course today.
