What is the learning environment at Digital Media Academy?
DMA does not teach its workshops “by the book.” Our philosophy is that curriculum should support and supplement workshops but not “be the course”. We know that our students have a more valuable and meaningful learning experience if we employ a hands on project based format as opposed to a strictly exercise based course. In the project based format students not only become better editors and users of the software, but they have an opportunity to take advantage of their instructor’s knowledge and expertise. Given our format, we do not promise to cover every concept or question a student may find on an exam. However, we do our best to prepare students to pass Apple’s certification exams.
How do I become an Apple Certified Professional?
To become an Apple Certified Pro, you must pass an online exam administered at an Apple Authorized Training Center. The test is a timed, online exam. Level One exams are administered at the end of specific courses facilitated at the Centers. Or if you prefer to learn on your own or believe you already have the necessary skill-set in your chosen application, you may register to take the exam at an Authorized Training Center for a fee. DMA is an Apple Authorized Training Center.
What are the benefits of becoming an Apple Certified Professional?
As an Apple Certified Pro, you will be recognized as a highly skilled user of the chosen application and will have the ability to differentiate yourself to employers and colleagues as a Certified Pro to promote career growth. You will receive a certificate from Apple distinguishing you as an Apple Certified Pro and will have the right to use the Apple Certified Pro logo. This logo can be placed on business cards or on your company’s website. Apple will also list your name and contact information on their certified pro website.
How much does the exam cost?
The stand-alone exam fee is $150. An exam taken after attending a DMA workshop is $100. If you do not pass, you may retake the exam after 8 days. You will be required to pay another $150 or $100 per exam attempt.
How difficult are the exams?
The exams are fairly comprehensive and will test even the seasoned Pro Applications veteran. We recommend taking the corresponding DMA course in order to prepare properly. We cannot guarantee that you will pass, but we do our best to prepare students for the concepts that are covered on the exam.
