Questions? We have answers

General

What is Adobe Certified Professional?
keyboard_arrow_down

Adobe Certified Professional is an industry-recognized certification that demonstrates mastery of Adobe Creative Cloud software and foundational knowledge for digital media careers. Each certification is tied to one Creative Cloud application. Exams are developed and delivered by Certiport, a Pearson VUE business.

I have an Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) certification. What happens now?
keyboard_arrow_down

Prior to June 2021, this program was known as Adobe Certified Associate. In June 2021, all valid ACA certifications that had been earned through live-in-the-app exams (CC 2018 or later) automatically adopted the new Adobe Certified Professional title for the remainder of their three-year eligibility period. New Credly badges have been awarded and new certificates are available for download through Certiport.com accounts.
Certifications that have been earned through simulation-based exams (CC 2015 or earlier) will remain under the Adobe Certified Associate name. To become an Adobe Certified Professional, candidates must pass a live-in-the-app exam.
Learn more about the name change.

When does my certification expire?
