Upon successful completion of the final assignment and other course requirements, participants will be awarded a digital Adobe Education Trainer credential and will have access to the Adobe Education Trainer Group, an online community on the Adobe Education Exchange, where there will be opportunities to network with peers and have access to an exclusive Adobe Education Trainer tool kit.
