Adobe expands Expert Certification Program

April 14, 2004


Adobe Systems has announced new certification levels, exams and vendors to the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) program, the company's certification program for graphic artists and creative professionals.

An ACE is someone who has demonstrated proficiency with one or more Adobe software products, including Acrobat. The certification program now makes it easier to showcase experience working with Adobe products by offering new levels of certification, including ACE Creative Suite Master; and ACE Web, Print or Video Specialist.

"Even in today's job market, employers continue to have difficulty matching their requirements with the right skill sets," said Bill McCulloch, Adobe training and certification programs manager. "The Adobe Certified program helps creative professionals and consultants differentiate themselves by calling out their specialized skills and deep product knowledge with clearly defined certification levels."

New exams are available for all major Adobe product upgrades in English, French, German and Japanese at more than 5,000 Thomson Prometric and Pearson VUE testing centers worldwide.

"When we provide our client companies with design professionals who have earned the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) credential, these businesses may be more assured they are working with highly skilled Adobe experts who can efficiently complete even the most challenging projects," said Tracey Turner, executive director of The Creative Group, a creative professional staffing service.

New Options for Trainers

The Adobe Certified Expert program includes new options for trainers, allowing them to quickly establish credibility and knowledge among educational institutions and potential students. To qualify for the Adobe Certified Instructor program, an individual must be certified as an ACE and demonstrate the ability to provide instruction or training to others on the use of Adobe products. Adobe Certified Instructors are qualified for potential employment at any of the more than 500 Adobe Authorized Training Centers around the world.
