I guess my titl e is my question: is it worthwhile to pursue a Flash certification? I have heard that Flash is being culled and that open source SDK's like OpenFL will pick up the banner, but that does not help since I want my students to get an industry certification. Is it even worthwhile to teach with Flash? If Flash is going away, then what Adobe product will replace it?

I'm a designer student. Last year we passed the ACA exams for Photoshop CS6 and Flash CS6. This year, it was scheduled that  we write the ACE exams of Photoshop CS6, InDesign CS6 and Acrobat X. We were told by passing these two ACA exams and the three ACE exams we would recieve our Design Specialist certification. Recently my college changed the cirriculum so that we do the ACA exams of Photoshop CC, InDesign CC and Acrobat XI. We were told that if we passed last year's ACA exams(PS cs6 and Fla... Read More

What are your thoughts on ACE /ACI (Adobe Certified Expert / Instructor) vs ACA (Adobe Certified Associate / Educator)?  The reason I ask is that I am a high school graphics teacher who LOVES Adobe Illustrator! I have my ACE in Adobe Illustrator CS5, CS6, and CC. I looked into becoming an ACI (Adobe Certified Instructor) but because of my full time high school teaching status I was told that I wasn't the right fit. I was told that I could get my Adobe Educator Certificate but I would have to take the... Read More

Points in the Adobe Education Exchange

I am hoping someone can explain to me how different members of the exchange can have such varied points accumulated.  I have been very active in the exchange, and yet I have found several other members with far less activity (less comments, resources, followers, etc.) have far more points. For example I found a couple that had over 3,000 points, yet almost no activity in the exchange. In addition, it looks like some have badges that should have be earned for a quantity of posts, yet it appears they don... Read More

Does anyone know where I can find the pass/fail cutoff scores for the ACA Illustrator Exams? Also, does anyone know if you can "fail" a practice exam? I am a high school teacher that is new to the ACA process and my students have only taken practice exams. So far, every student has passed every practice exam. The lowest score was a 500 out of 1000 and they still passed. As the student that received the 500 was taking the test I watched her skip the last 10 questions and she still passed. Is this...

I am trying to embed Photoshop skills in an English class so my students can take the PS ACA test in June. Has anyone tried or done this before, and if so, are you willing to share best practices, tips, or tricks? It has been fun (and quite an adventure) thus far, but it would help to discuss the ins and outs with others.

I recently received an e-mail from Adobe Partner Connection and I found this part stating that as an ACI, I can get discount on my CC membership: "Adobe Certified Instructors may purchase an Adobe Creative Cloud Individual membership directly from Adobe online using the Teacher / Faculty / Staff purchasing option. For a list of current pricing, go here." It took me a while to find out that this discount is only available for US and Mexico based ACIs. What about all the other ACIs aro... Read More

Can anyone help me locate the training modules online offered as Adobe teacher training/certification?  I thought I registered for the training classes...but there's no confirmation email and I have no clue where to find the assignments to complete online.  I find this site extremely difficult to locate information regarding the online training for the teacher certification course.  If anyone can contact me with information I would really appreciate it.  Thank you :)
