Seeking advice on how to go about getting adobe certifications, specifically Illustrator, Photoshop and In Design.
Really just looking for anyones experience with attending virtual/live courses and the best way to gain the info necessary to take the exams.
Certificate for what purpose -- to demonstrate basic software skills to fulfill a graduation or employment requirement or do you wish to teach at an Adobe Certified Training Center?
Really, I'm looking to be able to include a certification to show my competency with adobe platforms on my resume. I'm thinking that the ACA is right for me.
Nobody has ever asked me to show software certifications to get hired. Most employers look at education & degrees earned, a portfolio of work examples, prior work experience and letters of recommendation. They may not even use Adobe products.
Unless you need to be certified I don't recommend it. You are better off creating a portfolio or if you take a class online just get the certificate of completion. LinkedIn Learning provides them at the end of courses. I teach 3 day classes online and provide certificates for my students.
I have to agree with Nancy. I have never gotten a job because of certifications. Their is lots of you tube and training web sites that will get you amazing experience.
