Program Information

The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Adobe Creative Suite in Business: Production Applications Specialist program is designed to develop proficiency with one of the professional Creative Suite software packages offered by Adobe. Developing skill with the software in this package provides useful tools for those interested in effective incorporation of video, audio and special effects in web pages and other applications.
