Renewals

As you might know, Adobe certifications expire every two years. If you’re interested in renewing your certification, go to the Adobe Credential System and search for the renewal exam you need. Renewal exams are shorter than regular certification exams, and are half the price.

Additionally, users of Adobe Target, Analytics, and Experience Manager will soon have a new, no-cost option for renewing their certifications!
