Certification from Adobe
The Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) program helps you gain recognition for your Adobe product expertise. Getting certified or recertified by Adobe is recognized as an industry standard of excellence worldwide—and it’s the best way to promote your proficiency in leading Adobe products.
Adobe certification and recertification exams
Adobe offers two types of exams: certification and recertification. Certification exams are computer-based, multiple-choice exams that are delivered by Pearson VUE in a proctored environment. A candidate can take a certification exam to complete his/her requirement toward certification.
Recertification exams are also multiple-choice. They are offered online and can be taken from anywhere in which you have an Internet connection. Effective July 1, 2012, recertification exams are offered by Pearson VUE using the same website you use to schedule your proctored exams. You can now use a single web account for both proctored and web-based exams!
Schedule proctored certification exams
ACE certification exams are offered by Pearson VUE through authorized testing centers. Exams may be scheduled in advance or on the day you wish to test (subject to availability).
Purchase non-proctored, web-based recertification exams
Online ACE recertification exams may be purchased and taken by logging in on the Pearson VUE sign-in page.
Note: in order to qualify for your recertification status, you must be certified on the previous version for the product in which you are currently seeking certification. For example, in order to have the Photoshop® CS5 recertification exam count toward your certification status, you must first be certified for Photoshop CS4.
