ASGE Consultant Experts Program

The ASGE Consultant Expert (ACE) Program draws on the diverse expertise of our membership to support innovation and training through the Institute for Training and Technology (IT&T).  ACE participants dedicate considerable time and expertise to travel to the IT&T to develop and implement new and innovative opportunities in education and training, ranging from customized one-on-one training for members to new hands-on training models.

ASGE is now offering customized training with an ACE.  Training may be developed in collaboration with an ACE one-on-one, or for small groups.  If you are interested in pursuing customized training, please email with the following information:

  • What skills would you like to develop or fine-tune?
  • How many days are you available and/or interested for training?  (Please specify any dates you may have in mind)?
