There is nobody… NOBODY that has the proven track record of ACA Test Prep. And there are a couple reasons that we think they are so effective:

1. We have the best track record of any training company for the Certiport Adobe Certified Associate Exams. Thirteen out of the top fifteen schools last we checked!

2. We don’t bore the snot out of students. Sure, it’s not every teacher’s style, but the students love the tutorials… Well, at least more than others.

3. Our projects flow. We make sure that the projects are fun, cool projects to do. No disjointed learning that doesn’t matter. Projects that you can use. And something to show mom and dad when you’re done!

It’s easy.

We don’t bore the snot out of our viewers. We’ve done extensive research and we can’t find a single piece of peer-reviewed research that says that training and educational materials have to completely and utterly bore the snot out of you! The research doesn’t exist.

Here’s what does exist. A track record. NOBODY is responsible for more certifications than ACA Test Prep and its trainers. All of our trainers are Adobe Education leaders or have been in the  top 5 certifying teachers at least three years. And nobody gets the feedback that we do from students.  We’re still in the classroom- and we know what works and what doesn’t.

Curious about what it’s like inside? No problem! The first 3 videos of Project 1, the first two videos of project 2, and the first video of every other project are open to the public so you can check it out! Poke around and get a feeling for the style and delivery of the projects. The curriculum DOES prepare you for the ACA exam- we’ve taken care of that!

You can also check out our WHY page to get info on why we do things differently. We’re all experienced teachers here at ACATestPrep, and what matters most to us is effective teaching and learning. We aren’t in it for the money, we’re in it for the kids. We only include tools and materials that actually help teachers teach- we don’t try to replace the teacher completely.
