Becoming Adobe Certified

In order to become Adobe certified, you must pass the authorized exam(s). Attending training courses gives you hands-on experience and in-depth knowledge with Adobe products. Specific training is not a required prerequisite to take a certification exam.

Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) Certification

Adobe Certified Associate (ACA)

An Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) has fundamental knowledge and skill and demonstrated proficiency in Adobe digital skills. This is an entry-level certfication.

To become an ACA, you must pass a product-specific proficiency exam. ACA Certification is available for several Adobe tools, each of which is aligned with a different digital career or industry.

ACA certifications are valid for three years after the date of issue. All certifications listed are offered for Adobe Creative Cloud products. Certification in previous product versions may be available for a limited time, but are not recommended due to being out of date with industry trends.

Certiport is the authorized testing provider for ACA certification exams. Certification exams are computer-delivered, closed-book tests. You will be asked to agree to the Adobe terms and conditions at the time of the exam. ACA exam voucher is $95. (Price as of 01/01/2017. Exam prices are subject to change and without notice to ONLC.) ACA exams can be taken at any of Certiport's Authorized Testing Centers.

Other Adobe certifications may be available. Those listed here are based on ONLC's course offerings.
