Why is Adobe certification so important?

What is an Adobe Certified Instructor?

Adobe implemented their instructor certification program in 1997 to help people like yourself easily make the distinction between a good instructor and an excellent one. To earn the Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI) status, the trainer must pass at least one rigorous Adobe product exam within 90 days of its release. These Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) exams separate those who know the software well from those who are truly experts in their field. In addition, the trainer must obtain an instructor qualification (a teaching credential or passing the CompTIA CTT+ exams, to demonstrate expertise in communicating technical information along with classroom management skills).

Please note that any training company can state that their instructors are “experts”, but Adobe Certified Instructors not only have teaching credentials, they also have to prove to Adobe that they know their applications at at expert level by passing an Adobe Certified Expert exam on every single program that they teach! It’s not easy to pass those exams, and that’s why there are very few ACIs in the world. For the current list of ACIs, visit the Adobe Partner Finder.
