Adobe Needs Lightroom Certifications
I recently looked in to taking a Lightroom ACE exam only to find out that Adobe discontinued the Lightroom ACE after LR 5 and has no plans on a future version of the test. This is on top of the fact that there is not an ACA exam for Lightroom either. With the increased user base of Creative Cloud and the new(ish) Photography Plan, there are more people using Lightroom than ever before. Certifications would ensure that professionals have (up-to-date) knowledge in the program and would be an even better match for a photography classroom than the Photoshop exam. There are so many Adobe-based exams for programs that are not nearly as popular. Fingers crossed that Adobe changes their minds and develops Lightroom certifications in the future!
