Spread the knowledge. Become an ACI.

Adobe Certification

When it comes to teaching or training others in the use of Adobe products, there's no better qualification than being certified by Adobe. By becoming an Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI), you can be confident that you'll get the support you need to make your Adobe classes successful, with access to a wide range of Adobe resources — including training materials, timely product updates, and promotional opportunities.

What is an ACI?

An Adobe Certified Instructor is an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) with proven training expertise. In order to become an ACI, you must show you have an instructor qualification ( passed the CompTIA CTT+ or equivalent), have passed one or more ACE exams, and accept the terms and conditions of the ACI program.
