Hi everybody, I'm a certified expert in Photoshop & Illustrator and going to try the ACE certification for Indesign in the next weeks. My plans are to become an Adobe Certified Instructor through the CompTIA CTT+ certification but I was told by my collegues certified instructors that were informed by Adobe with an official email that Adobe is deleting the ACI program and that kind of certification will be not available anymore. I was able to personally read that email. At the same time I've received d... Read More

Can students taking the ACA exam stop and then return to finish it? The time limit is 50 minutes - I think. Can that be broken up or does the exam have to be completed during a 50-minute period.

When should students be taking the Photoshop ACA Certification Exam, in middle or high school? I was told, ideally, you should have two years experience with Photoshop before taking the exam. Of course, students are very tech savvy, but Photoshop has been very difficult for my middle school students with no experience with the program. Also, Adobe offers lesson plans, but they are primarily for high school students. Hmm...

Our school uses Certiport/ Gmetrix/ Console 8 and Compass to certify students and instructors. However, it seems odd we only have Adobe Associate level exams available, unless we use Pearson VUE. I'm confused since Pearson/ Adobe/ Certiport all work in some sort of harmony to bring the testing modules to our facilities. Is there an easier way to access the Adobe Expert Level exams via our current setup? If not, where can I access Pearson VUE to get the Expert level exams?

Hello there, I`m encountering a problem and I don`t know how to fix it. I took an ACA exam for Photoshop (I passed with 900 from 1000 points) on the Certiport platform after I finished a Web Design program that lasted a year. The exam was taken at my design school. On my Certiport account I have my certificate, transcript and certificate code which anybody can use to verify me an the Verify Certiport portal. I created an Upwork account to do some freelancing beside my job and I wanted to verify my Adob... Read More

I am continuously working to prepare my students for the ACA exams in Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. I would ideally like all of my students to test and pass, but it is not a perfect world. I am curious to know how other educators determine who they test and who they do not test, and how this is determined.

Hi, I'm trying to prepare for the Adobe Certified Associate (InDesign) exam and would love to know if anyone has tips to share? I've been using InDesign for a good 15 years, but I know there are little techniques that I just don't use daily and thus won't be prepared for on the exam. I'm ready to add that ACE badge to my profile!

Infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly. They can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system's ability to see patterns and trends. You have an opportunity to rise above the competitors. If infographics get better engagement than other types of content, but only 30 percent of marketers are using them frequently, you can engage your audience by producing more infographics.

I'm interested in offering Certification Testing to my high school classes next year. All discussions that I have found here seem to be several years old. Are others using the G-W Certification series with CertiPort testing? What has your experience been? Are you able to have students ready to test within a semester? In a perfect world, I would like to offer both InDesign and Dreamweaver testing the same semester - to let students choose which one they are interested in. Does this seem feasible to those of...

I teach Photoshop to high school students who strive to become ACA certified. The current ACA exam offered in Certiport for Photoshop is based on the Photoshop CC 2015 edition. Our current Adobe license is for Photoshop CC 2018. So, my students are using the 2018 version but tested on the 2015 version, and there are MANY DIFFERENCES. When is Adobe planning on updating the Photoshop exam with Certiport and to what version of Photoshop? I have also heard that the Certiport test was going to be "live"... Read More
