Three Steps to Become Adobe Certified

Adobe Certified Expert, Master, and Professional certification exams measure your skills and expert-level proficiency with Adobe products.

Adobe certification can help you differentiate yourself from competitors, advance your career, and improve customer satisfaction. It demonstrates your ability to meet complex challenges with a mastery that comes with training and real-world product use. And with Professional and Master certification levels joining the Adobe Certified Expert certification, you can get certified sooner or show your career growth. 

An Adobe certification shows your expertise in helping clients realize value in an Adobe solution. The more hands-on work experience you have, and the more training you complete, the better your chances of passing. Check out the steps to get certified and earn your badge!

Step 1: Get Started – Adobe Certification Exam Guides

Certification exam guides recommend the skills you need to have, so that you know when you are ready to take the Adobe certified exam. You are not required to complete training before taking an exam; however, training can increase your skills and knowledge.

Review the exam guide regularly to ensure that you’re on track to pass your certification exam. Exam guides contain:

  • Exam topics and question distribution: understand the key skills and percentage of questions per subject area
  • Online sample tests to gauge your knowledge (not yet available for all exams) 
  • The recommended job experience, knowledge, skills, and abilities required to pass the exam
  • Costs, how to register, the number of questions, time limit, and passing score
Recertification: If you’re already certified and ready to renew a certification, we now offer certification renewal exams for many applications.
  • Recertification exams have fewer questions, are lower-cost, and designed to test your knowledge on newer application capabilities
  • When you pass, your certification is renewed for two years
