The Adobe Certification Training in Photoshop Skills Certificate provides a course of study in the graphic program, Photoshop. This program of study prepares the student to take the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) industry exam for Photoshop. The skills are applicable to printed and web media.

An ACE is a person who has demonstrated proficiency with one or more Adobe products. To become an ACE, the individual must pass one or more product-specific proficiency exams and agree to the ACE terms and conditions. Successful completion of the ACE exam will indicate a significant depth and breadth of Photoshop knowledge and experience, and will enhance the recipients' value in the job market.

Photoshop skills are applicable to many careers including photographer, graphic designer, art director, web page designer and developer, technical writer, and video producer.
