Adobe Certification


I received an email today asking help with preparing for Adobe Certification. Essentially, this person wanted to know where to start and what was involved in becoming certifed for Adobe Flash. The place to start when looking for information is Adobe Certified (see link below). There are several types of certifications available.

As we all know, Adobe releases new versions of their software on a regular basis and recertification will be necessary to remain current.
