There is a strong demand for Adobe Creative Suite skills. In the Adobe Certified Associate program, you will learn five of the most often-used Adobe programs: Dreamweaver, Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, and Animate (formerly Flash). You will read short readings, complete exercises and watch video demos and reviews of exercises, take quizzes and exams, and complete a project.
