InDesign ACA Overview

adobe indesign

Adobe InDesign is the recognised standard in desktop publishing for print and digital page layout. Provding exact control over typography and document flow, graphic designers can create stunning page layouts for print or digital media. With so many powerful features, Adobe certified employees tend to be more skilled in their use of Adobe InDesign than their non-certified peers.

The Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) certification in InDesign, is aimed at those who plan careers as professional designers, marketers, or advertisers. The Adobe ACA exam is created to challenge you and demonstrate your knowledge and skills with Adobe InDesign.

Our Adobe Certified Associate InDesign preparation training aims to give you the confidence to prepare for the official ACA exam. As a certified testing centre you can sit the exam with us, as soon as you feel that you are ready.

All the skills needed to pass the Adobe Certified Associate exam will be discussed during the InDesign exam preparation training session.

This package provides you with an opportunity to sit ACA practise exams and discuss any InDesign questions you may still have with your trainer before finally sitting the ACA exam.

Important: If you feel that you need a little more time to prepare for your exam, you have the option to delay the taking of the exam until a later date.

Course Outcomes

At the end of the training course, students will be comfortable using InDesign to create document layouts and be able to :

  • Understand Adobe InDesign
  • Create page layouts
  • Be prepared to sit the ACA exam
  • Understand the Exam requirements

Course Requirements

To attend the InDesign ACA Exam Prep training you should already have good experience with Adobe InDesign and ideally be working with it on a day to day basis. If you are not confident using InDesign, you may wish to consider attending the five day InDesign ACA training course instead.

If you wish to attend our InDesign training, but do not wish to study for the Adobe Certified Associate certification, then we also offer the Introduction to InDesign as an alternative option.

Course Description

Our Adobe Certified Associate exam preparation sessions will talk you through the requirements to pass the ACA Exam and highlight skills that may be tested during your exam.

During the session, you will be provided with the opportunity to sit Adobe Certified Associate practise exams to help you build your confidence and become familiar with the testing process.

Once you are ready and all of your InDesign questions have been answered by the trainer, you will be able to sit the exam and hopefully walk away with your Adobe Certified Associate certification.
