Take a practice test
We recommend taking the free practice test before you start. You’ll have unrestricted access to all available practice tests for Adobe’s expert-level exams.
Our practice tests are all developed from the same blueprint as the live exams. The practice test will help you understand the topics covered in the live exam.
Please remember that passing a practice test does not guarantee you will pass the certification exam.

Take the certification exam
Adobe uses two vendors to administer proctored exams, PSI and Examity.
To schedule, reschedule, or cancel your exam, simply click on the vendor of choice, and follow the instructions provided on screen. It’s that simple!
Your profile name in the Adobe Credential Management System must exactly match your Government ID. Failure to have identical information or any mismatch will result in the proctor terminating the exam and will require you to reschedule your appointment in addition to paying an additional exam fee.
Cancellations and rescheduling are possible if initiated prior to 48 hours before the scheduled exam appointment. Candidates must modify this appointment themselves.
You can pay for your certification exam by voucher or credit card. To purchase an exam voucher go to: Adobe Certification Voucher Center.
You can apply the voucher code when you schedule your exam. If you have a discount, it will apply at checkout.
