Your Adobe certification is valid for two years. If you are nearing this two-year mark, it’s time to renew your certification to keep it active.
First, select the appropriate level on the tab below (Professional, Expert, or Master). Then carefully review what you’ll need to do to renew your certification.
Be sure that you provide ample time to complete all the requirements before your certification expires.
It’s important to note that if your certification expires, you’ll have to retake the certification exam, which is NOT free of charge.
The following sections and links will function only after a successful login to the Adobe Credential Management System.
The Professional renewal is in development. Those whose certifications are expiring will receive an extension so that they can still make use of this free renewal method when it is available.
You should be currently certified (not expired) in:
Scope and objectives
Section 1: Installation and system configuration (23%)
Section 2: Customization (18%)
Section 3: Data architecture (22%)
Section 4: Campaign, workflow, delivery, and reporting (37%)
You are not required to complete training before taking the exam, and training alone will not provide you with the knowledge and skills required to pass the exam. A combination of training and successful, on-the-job experience are critical to providing you with the repository needed to pass the exam.
Here are some suggested resources to help you prepare:
Section 1: Installation and system configuration
Section 2: Customization
Section 3: Data architecture
Section 4: Campaign, workflow, delivery, and reporting
Ensure that you have followed step 1 above, and successfully logged in to Adobe Credential Management System first. Then, to renew your certification, click the Campaign Classic renewal - AD5-823 link below.
This exam is free, open book, and un-proctored. You may take the exam up to three times. If you are unsuccessful after the third attempt, you must wait 30 days to try again. Failure to comply might result in your certification being revoked.
