Preparing for the Adobe Certified Associate Exam

Becoming an Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) means that you’ve demonstrated basic proficiency with various software such as Photoshop or Dreamweaver. The ACA program is specifically structured for learners just starting out in their careers and those wishing to enter a new industry.

There are timed ACA exams for each program in Adobe Creative Suite, consisting of 40 questions each. The exams include questions on the tools and some basic functions within each application, as well as questions on best industry practices. While ACA certifications alone don’t take the place of a strong portfolio, the learning process provides an opportunity to develop your own design work and demonstrate entry-level competency to prospective employers.

Two ACA Specialist certificates are also available which require the successful completion of multiple ACA exams within a period of three years: ACA Visual Design Specialist and ACA Web Design Specialist.
