Does attending training courses help with certification?
Attending training courses gives you hands-on experience and in-depth expertise in Adobe products. However, training courses are not prerequisites for a certification exam.
If I do not pass an exam, can I get a refund?
We are unable to offer refunds for failed exams.
For how long will my CC certifications be valid?
Your ACE CC certification will be valid for two years after the date you certify.
How long do the certifications last?
All product certifications do not expire, although ACE exams are continually evaluated and updated to ensure the content remains relevant. Maintaining your certification status endorses your knowledge and skills as a valued and competent professional.
When will I receive my score?
Results for exams that only consist of only multiple choice questions will be provided immediately upon completion. Exams with both multiple choice and short answer questions will have results delivered in two parts: The multiple-choice portion is scored immediately upon completion and the short answer portion is scored within five business days. You will receive your score by email.
What happens if I fail?
You may register for the exam again 14 days after a failed attempt. You are allowed up to three exam attempts for any exam annually. Each exam instance will incur a separate exam fee.
How do I find out what I missed?
Question answers are not disclosed. Adobe strives to maintain the highest standards to protect the integrity of the certifications you earn.
What do I receive upon certifying?
All certifications offer an e-certificate and use of the ACE logo, which will be emailed to you following receipt of your signed ACE Agreement. Products in the Adobe Digital Marketing Suite also include an ACE welcome kit, which will be mailed out six weeks after earning your certification.
Where do I view my certification history (results, etc.)?
