Adobe Certified Professional in Digital Video
Using Adobe Premiere Pro 

Adobe Certified Professional certifications, delivered by Certiport, are the official, industry-recognized credentials that validate entry-level proficiency in Adobe Creative Cloud applications and foundational knowledge for digital media careers.
The Digital Video Using Adobe Premiere Pro exam is 50-minutes in length, comprised of two sections – selected-response items followed by live-in-the-app tasks inside Premiere Pro – and designed with the following Target Candidate in mind:
The Target Candidate (TC) has approximately 150 hours of instruction and hands-on experience with the product and is familiar with product features and capabilities, as well as relevant career concepts. The TC is generally self-sufficient and able to apply knowledge of video production and editing principles to perform basic or routine tasks involved in her or his job role with limited assistance from peers, product documentation, or support services. The TC generally works in collaboration with colleagues or with supervision. Furthermore, the TC will be able to answer most routine conceptual and applied questions about how to use Premiere Pro and usually does not have to refer basic questions to others. He or she can speak credibly to other users or clients about what can be done with Premiere Pro and how to use it effectively.
