Get Certified ... as an Adobe Certified Associate

26th January 10:00 to 12:00
A fully funded opportunity (worth up to £600) to gain external certification from Adobe to evidence competency in Video and Design apps. Whatever your starting point, sharpen your skills and evidence self-development with a completely flexible process.
This activity is offered as part of Future Me Week - five days of exciting opportunities to develop your skills, deepen understanding, gain experience and take steps towards an exciting Future You.

Adobe is the industry-leading provider of software for video, design, photography and the web. Its packages are widely used throughout the creative industries, but they also support productivity and communication in a whole range of sectors. Evidence of your competencies through an officially endorsed Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) certification can really build your profile, and evidence your ability to manage your own ongoing development.

Certification with associated training normally costs anything up to £600, but through Man Met Rise, students across five of Adobe’s major applications:

  • Photoshop
  • Illustrator
  • InDesign
  • After Effects
  • Premiere Pro

Students are currently able to obtain up to three certifications.

Don’t worry if you don’t manage to finish all the training you would have liked to do during Future Me Week. We’ll keep providing new opportunities for you to get certified in Adobe across the rest of the year.

To complete your training in order to sit your exam during Future me week, we have partnered with LinkedIn Learning to create a training package, available here: Rise x Future Me at Manchester Met (
