Today, it’s not about what you know, it’s about what you invent. And students are discovering new vistas of creativity and greater fluency of expression.

With Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) certification, students rise to levels of greater understanding and capacity as they learn the digital language of their trade. And as educators provide industry-recognized certification as part of their curriculum, students gain confidence and recognition

as they validate and certify the skills and software knowledge needed to succeed in higher education and on the job.

Certification that Proves Animate CC Skills

Adobe Animate CC is a powerful authoring environment for creating animation and multimedia content. Users design immersive interactive experiences that present consistently across desktops and multiple devices, including tablets, smartphones, and televisions.

But without practical work experience, landing a job right out of school can be difficult—especially in the competitive world of digital media. With Adobe Certified Associate certification, students validate and certify their ability and fluency through the Rich Media Communication using Adobe Animate CC Exam. With this certification in hand, students are prepared to stand out to employers who seek to fill very competitive and high demand
job postings.

Curriculum that Makes a Difference

Student certification goals are most effectively achieved as educators enhance their existing courses by incorporating Adobe Animate CC certification objectives into their curriculum. Institutions may also access and implement free curriculum from Adobe Education which maps to the exam objectives. The final certification exam actually replicates application experience by testing hands-on skills in Adobe Animate CC and can be easily administered in CompuMedia.
