Adobe Certified Expert Renewal

Certification Renewal - Starting on July 1, 2019.

To make Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) status even more relevant, valuable, and exclusive, we are introducing regular renewal of all certifications. Specifically, all Adobe certifications beginning July 1, 2019 will now expire after two years and require renewal. Renewal consists of passing the latest version of the applicable Adobe certification exam. This adjustment helps ensure all ACEs remain current and can create value for customers using the latest features and functionality of Adobe's solutions, which are constantly evolving to stay ahead of a rapidly changing customer experience market.

When to Renew

There is a one-year grace period for ACEs holding older certifications achieved on or before June 30, 2018. If your certification was achieved on or before this date, you have until June 30, 2020, to renew your certification.

If your certification is newer and was achieved on or after July 1, 2018, you have two years from your date of achievement to renew your certification.

You can find the date of your certification achievement by logging in to the Adobe Credential Manager using your Adobe ID. Adobe will notify you via email before your certification expires.
