My self being an ACI in Captivate, would like to take you through the steps I completed to become an Adobe Certified Instructor.
Please note that, I had followed the necessary steps that were correct at that time(2015), but you may need to contact the concerned Adobe personnel regarding the latest requirements and changes in their rules/path if any (important links are given at the end of this post.).
I can summarize my whole journey (of becoming an ACI) in 3 parts.
Part 1) Became an ACE in Captivate.
Part 2) Gave an additional exam for the Captivate.
Part 3) Got a CTT+ Certification.
Step 1: Get hands-on practice of practical in Captivate.
Steps 2: Download the Exam syllabus (Topics, that will be asked in the Exam) from Adobe site.
Step 3: Now again do practicals, but this time, from an Exam point of view.
Step 4: Download Study material from the Adobe site, as well as from other sites (just google the relevant exam number!)
Step 5: Now do some theoretical preparation from the material you downloaded.
Step 6: Book/ Register for the Exam.
Step 7: Give that Exam and succeed in it.
After succeeding in the Exam, although you are an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE), in order to become an Instructor, Adobe requires (during 2014-15) that one should also clear another exam (Adobe Captivate with eLS extensions ). So I had to give that exam too.
For that, follow the same steps that we followed for the first exam & clear that exam.
Now, you need to show that along with subject expertise, you also have teaching proficiency.
You need to submit a certificate for the same.
So, if you have any such recognized certificate (Either Microsoft Certified Instructor or similar), good enough, else you are left with only one best option and that is to ‘get yourself ‘CTT+’ certified.
I went for the same. (CTT+ certification).
Procedure to get a CTT+ certificate:
To get a CTT+ certificate, you need to give two exams. one theoretical Exam(CTT+ Essentials – TK0-201 ) and one practical test TK0-202 (Teaching video submission).
First, I prepared for it’s theoretical exam(Exam number TK0-201…).
Registered for the exam and cleared it.
Once you submit that video to the concerned CTT+ Exam authority, they will evaluate that video and take a decision regarding how are your teaching skills…. Believe me, making that video was not so simple, as we need to keep in mind and follow the many rules laid out and prescribed by them in that 20-minute video. Also, you should not edit that video in any way if you do so you will fail!!. Editing/Cut in the recorded video is not allowed.
I submitted my video… and I cleared the process in my 1st attempt itself.
Once you get a certificate of CTT+, submit that to the concerned Adobe department (by email).
And in a week’s time, if all is well, you get an email from Adobe saying you are now an ACI. You will also get a Soft copy of the ACI Certificate from Adobe. And you officially become an Adobe Certified Instructor!
Please note: official procedure requires you to sign an Adobe agreement…
Hope this post will help and guide those who are interested to become an ACI.
