This collaboration highlights Adobe’s commitment to bring industry-leading technologies to students, and to empower them with the best skills for a challenging and competitive professional world ahead of them.”

“X1 empowers students with creative and technical skills to fuel the growing demand from the web technologies and graphics industry for skilled, workplace-ready employees. Such a course would be incomplete without Adobe’s industry standard tools and technologies that have been and will always be the backbone in production. X1 aims to create an employable and skilled workforce, and our association with Adobe is key to delivering that vision. We’re particularly excited to offer our students access to Adobe’s industry-leading Creative Cloud as well as an opportunity to become an Adobe Certified Associate (ACA).” said Naveen Gupta, CEO and Executive Director, Frameboxx.

This association seems to be very fruitful for the students as well. Along with this specialised X1 programme the students will also be entitled to sit for the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) certification examination at the completion of the programme.
