FAQ

I am an Adobe Certified Associate already; I just got my certification this year. Do I need to retake the exam to become an Adobe Certified Professional?

If you have taken the exam in 2020, you do not need to retake the exam. The Adobe Certified Professional exam is the same exam as the Adobe Certified Associate exam. If you have passed the Adobe Certified Associate in 2020, you do not need to be recertified to become an Adobe Certified Professional. In the Summer of 2021, your Adobe Certified Associate certification will automatically revert to the Adobe Certified Professional certification. But, it will take a year for this to happen, due to government mandates currently in place.

It says that my voucher for the exam should be given to Future Media Concepts. What exactly is that?

Future Media Concepts is an authorized training facility that conducts online and in-person training on various types of software. We offer certification as well. You will sign up to take the exam virtually through FMC and they’ll walk you through the whole process!

I became an Adobe Certified Associate in 2019. Do I need to retake the exam to become an Adobe Certified Professional?

If you have taken the exam in 2019, your certification lasts for two years. You do not need to retake the exam. The Adobe Certified Professional exam is the same exam as the Adobe Certified Associate exam. If you pass the Adobe Certified Associate in 2019, you will need to be recertified in the Summer of 2021 to become an Adobe Certified Professional.

Do you offer recordings of this prep class or additional prep class times?

If you are interested in taking the prep course but can’t make the times available during AVW, there will also be times available during Post|Production World Online Conference, and recordings of the prep class will be available. For information on receiving the recordings, please contact Ed Pachell at edwardp@fmctraining.com.

Is there any other way that I can get the title of Adobe Certified Professional before the actual release in June of 2021?

Nope! Adobe is only giving exclusive access to the early release of the ACP title to those who take the exam through Adobe Video World 2020 and Future Media Concepts!
