Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Certified Instructor

Jul 2016

Different and more coveted than the Adobe Certified Expert status in Lightroom (ACE), an Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI) is an ACE with proven training expertise. In addition to instructor qualifications with referrals from my superiors from my 9 years at F.I.T. and student reviews, an ACI must have one or more ACE certifications. I am one of only 35 Adobe Certified Lightroom Instructors in the world.
