CUSTOMISED TESTING PROGRAMS

ACE has been meeting the English language testing needs of Cambodian government ministries, donor organisations, NGOs and corporations in Cambodia since 1992. With more than 20 years of testing experience, ACE is the premier institution in Cambodia for assessing and reporting.

ACE’s Training and Testing Department tests large numbers of candidates each month to satisfy varying client needs including:

  • Selection of candidates for overseas scholarships
  • Selection of candidates for further training
  • Selection of candidates for employment in English speaking work environments
