We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
ACE certification expires regularly and you have to renew it.
I heard that if this certification was in one program it will be valid for life .. Is that true ??
There are updates to the software each year - so how could your certification be valid for life?
Ok I agree with but I don't see that I have to take the test every year to be up to date to all the updates in the software. . I can be an expert in a certain thing by educating myself and practicing something .. there is no necessary for the exam .. that is my opinion.
And I am here to be sure that I understand everything..
Thanks anyway monika
The ACE is generally for people working as trainers. If you're just a regular user, there may not be much value in maintaining a certification unless your job requires it.
To be honest I want thus certification to be a trainer and also it helps me in my work in architecture and graphic design.
Thank you Doug.
"Ok I agree with but I don't see that I have to take the test every year to be up to date to all the updates in the software."
You take the exam not in order to be up to date with the software, but in order to prove that you are up to date with it. That is an important difference.
Thank you monika for these information.

Hi @deemaa34596128 :
The Illustrator exam is now combined with Photoshop and Illustrator. Once you pass the new Design exam, the certification will be valid for two years, and you will need to re-certify to maintain your credentials.
Here is the study guide, which lists what is covered: https://spark.adobe.com/page/8Ccmgtv8R0ebT/.
