Adobe Certification

Important information for every Adobe Certified Associate individual!

Dear clients, if you have acquired the title Adobe Certified Associate, we want to inform you about the changes and the news about Adobe certification.

The well recognized Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) title that you have obtained by passing the ACA exam, is now changed to a new title – Adobe Certified Professional. Certifications received for the CC 2018, 2019 and 2020 exams will retroactively adopt the Adobe Certified Professional name in June 2021.

If you acquired the higher title Adobe Certified Associate Visual/Video Design Specialist, that title will stay active, but you will also receive the new title - Adobe Certified Professional in Visual/Video Design.

Your renewed certificates are already available at your personal Certiport account, feel free to download the files and update your CV and portfolio.
