Student Reviews

Pariah’s knowledge is vast (I suspect he never sleeps!), but that fact is trumped by his eagerness to share what he knows. He’s a wonderful resource to the graphic community! — Claudia Mccue, Practicalia / Adobe

The Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) in Video Communication with Adobe Première Pro cer­ti­fi­ca­tion allows you to demon­strate your pro­fi­ciency in Première Pro, stand apart from your peers, and increase your career oppor­tu­ni­ties. In plain lan­guage: the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion declares to the world that you are highly skilled in the real world use of the indus­try stan­dard video edit­ing appli­ca­tion, Première Pro. Whereas the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is a tech­ni­cal avouch­ment, demon­strat­ing detailed knowl­edge of the work­ings of every facet of Première Pro and its user inter­face, the Adobe Certified Associate in Video Communication cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is a state­ment of your abil­ity to use Première Pro and that you under­stand the con­cepts required to use Première Pro in the real world.

It’s that tes­ta­ment that makes the ACA in Video Communication so valu­able for work­ing design­ers, artists, and com­pos­i­tors, and what makes hir­ing man­agers so desire an ACA cert­fi­ca­tion on can­di­dates’ resumes.
