I know AAAE has the ACE course for Airfield Electrical but I am trying to avoid cost...

AAAE.. ACE vs CM

I am looking into going into the CM program or the ACE-OPS program through AAAE. After doing some price analysis both programs are equally expensive. I was wondering if anyone had gone through either program, or both, and what their experiences were and if they found them beneficial.
