Vanessa Gordon, Administrative Assistant in Miami University’s Office for the Advancement of Research and Scholarship (OARS), recently earned the Professional Administrative Certification of Excellence (PACE).

Administered by the American Society of Administrative Professionals (ASAP), PACE is earned by passing a 120-question exam that covers topics ranging from office technology to  project management to interpersonal communications. To maintain certification, Gordon will complete at least 24 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every two years.

According to ASAP, those who earn the PACE credential are “highly-credible professional[s] . . . whose skills and expertise are recognized.”
