Adobe Certified Expert: Worth the Paper it's not written on?

    I'm new to the freelancing game after just getting out of uni. I'm balancing my time between finding freelance work and looking for full-time employment.

    Do you think certifications like the ACE are worth the money? Do they impress employers/clients or are they just another smart money-spinner for Adobe Systems?

    It'd be really interesting to hear you thoughts.

    That's a good question that I would be quite keen on knowing the answer too also. I looked into them a while back and was quite put off by the price and the fact that they expire 90 days after a new release, which seems to be every year now with the .5 upgrades.

    I asked the same question on the Web Designer Forum. This is what we thought:

    For me the fact that your certification expires when new features emerge is concerning.
