Adobe Fundamentals Image

If you get a Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Adobe, you are telling the world that you are SERIOUS about graphics, images, design, and creativity. You are making a statement—one that says that you are SERIOUS about going to work for a company that knows about creating the right image. Join Adobe in “changing the world through digital experiences.” Reinvent your life with these four certificates:

  • The Adobe Foundations Certificate teaches you three of Adobe’s industry-standard graphics programs: Photoshop, Illustrator, and Flash.

  • Adobe Production Applications Specialist Certificate gives you what you need for movie/video  editing, audio and special effects.
  • Want to create apps exclusively for smart phones and tablets? The Adobe AIR Development Certificate covers application development for mobile devices including iOS, Android & Windows 8 tablets and smart phones.
