Today at ISTE, Certiport announced the availability of the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) exams for the new Adobe Creative Suite 6 (CS6). The exams engage students and validate their use of digital media utilizing Adobe Photoshop, Flash, Dreamweaver and Premiere Pro.

Educators can use the updated ACA certification program to teach relevant curriculum and validate the foundational Adobe skills that demonstrate work-ready job skills to prospective employers.

“Certiport’s ACA certification program stays ahead of the technology curve by teaching the latest best practices for building and designing rich media content with Adobe tools,” said Ray Kelly, CEO, Certiport. “In education settings, Certiport’s ACA exams help to bridge classroom learning to real-world application and prepare students to enter the workforce. Individuals in the workforce can also enhance their skills with ACA certification.”

The updated Photoshop, Flash, and Dreamweaver ACA exams are available now in English, with the Premiere Pro exam rolling out in Q3. Customers who have an existing ACA site license can upgrade to the new CS6 version of the exams at no additional cost. The exams are still available for CS4 and CS5 for customers who are not yet migrating to the upgraded Adobe product suite.

“With today’s challenging job market, applicants seek to stand out,” said Tacy Trowbridge, Group Manager for Worldwide Curriculum Certification, Adobe. “ACA CS6 certification on a resume demonstrates knowledge in the latest digital technology media, proving to employers that you have the skills to not only do the job, but to do it well.”
