BLOOMINGTON, Minn., Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pearson, the world's leading learning company, is issuing badges for the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) certification program via its badge platform, Acclaim. Badges will now be available to candidates who earn ACA certification for the Adobe Creative Cloud or Creative Suite 6.
Acclaim's approach to applying the Mozilla Foundation's open badge standard is to partner with academic institutions and high-stakes credentialing organizations such as Adobe to represent as badges learning outcomes and professional skills sought after by employers. ACA badge-earners have complete control to display them wherever they choose – on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, a blog or website – to prove their proficiency.
"ACA candidates excel in the digital media world and appreciate having proof of their skills in a format that can be managed and shared online," said Melissa Jones, world wide education program manager for Adobe. "By representing the ACA certification as a badge through Acclaim, we empower our students to take credit for and manage their achievements digitally."
"Adobe and Pearson are demonstrating industry leadership by embracing badges for Adobe's AcCA candidates," said Clarke Porter, general manager for Acclaim, at Pearson VUE. Jarin Schmidt, product lead for Acclaim added, "Acclaim badges help lower the cost of credential verification and enable ACA candidates to share their accomplishments in a verified fashion across the online destinations most relevant to them."
Badges issued through Acclaim come from a trusted source and can be verified by clicking on the badge. Each badge includes metadata that shows who earned the credential, what was accomplished, and the organization that issued the badge. This transparency makes it easy for individuals to represent online their full range of abilities to academic institutions, employers and industry peers.
Certiport, a Pearson VUE business, delivers the ACA certification program throughout the world. For more information visit www.certiport.com/aca.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
