Certification by Adobe is recognised as an industry asset-an immediate way to communicate your knowledge and gain advanced skills. Becoming an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) gives you a clear way to tell the world about your expertise and communicate your proficiency in leading products from Adobe.
ACE exams are proctored, multiple-choice tests given at convenient locations throughout the world at Pearson VUE test centres. Purchasing an ACE Exam Voucher enables you to test for the particular ACE credential in which you have an interest. In order to sit an exam, candidates should purchase an Adobe exam voucher for the specific product for which they desire certification.
ACE certification is not to be confused with the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) programme, which validates entry-level skills as a precursor to the expert-level skills validated by ACE certification.
There are two types of ACE exams: certification and recertification. Certifications on Adobe Digital Marketing Suite products and Creative Cloud are valid for 12 months. Once your certification has expired, you will have 90 days to recertify. After the recertification window has past, you will have to go back to a testing centre and take the full certification exam.
Certification exams are computer based, multiple-choice exams that are delivered by Pearson VUE in a proctored environment. Recertification exams are also multiple-choice. They are offered online and can be taken from anywhere in which you have an Internet connection.
