Adobe Certified Associate

Overview

They say that opportunity knocks but once. Well, we politely beg to differ. With Adobe® Certified Associate (ACA) certification, students are uniquely positioned for digital media opportunities in today’s challenging job market. So when opportunity (cleverly disguised as a hiring manager) comes knocking—they’ll be ready. But, why does certification matter, and what does it actually do for students?
