Adobe Certified Professional (ACP) certifications are an excellent way to recognize and inspire creativity in your students. They allow students to approach tasks and projects in new ways and offer a foundation for success by validating their skills. The ACA certification program allows you to become involved with your student’s creative process while also assessing their progress, engagement, and involvement.
