One of biggest learing company in my country is giving "Adobe Certificate of Achievement: Adobe Web Site Designer" for one of their programs in learning.
I never heard for this before and cant find on Adobe site.
And also on web I can find enything about "Adobe Certificate of Achievement".
I did not find it.
Adobe Certified Expert, Adobe Certified Associate and Adobe Certified Instructor, but cant find Adobe Certificate of Achievement.
Also company is giving next certificates "Fireworks Adobe Certificate of Attendance" , "PS Adobe Certificate of Attendance", etc..
As I understood, this are certificates that comes from training centers..
You can't get anything from Adobe without any formal training. Adobe certification is not something you can buy like degrees from certain US Universities!. you need to train hard and the end result is to get a certificate and a well paid job - recession or no recession.
Having a "Certificate" that says you took a basic course in Dreamweaver or Fireworks doesn't prepare you for much.
Save your money and learn everything you can about HTML, CSS, Web Design Theory, Databases, client-side & server-side programming. These are skills employers want and are willing to pay for.
