  • Flash Design ACP Intermediate 3 Days

    Course Details

    This 3-day Intermediate course will help to develop your skills as you explore the advanced features of Adobe Flash CC.

    You will already understand the basics of the program, and we will show you how to take that knowledge to the next level. We will cover topics such as structuring designs and integrating ActionScript 3 code written by development team members. We break the course down into these distinct sections:

    • Advanced design and animation techniques: exploring some of the latest features of Flash and design best practice
    • Workshop examples: used to show how design can work in harmony with development in Flash and ActionScript 3

    Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

    • Build photo galleries, carousels, and MP3 players
    • Structure projects by adding navigation features
    • Apply perspective, blend modes, and other 3D features
    • Test your output and simulate a download

    The final day of the course is dedicated to the Adobe Certified Professional (ACP) Flash exam, including trying a mock exam, reviewing answers, and then taking the real exam. The ACP exam represents an official qualification, and you will be provided with an instant pass or fail result. We are confident that you will join everyone we have already helped to pass the exam and collect an official certificate of Adobe Certified Professional status.

    As well as giving you the opportunity to take the ACP exam, this course is the perfect preparation if you plan to take the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) exam.

    Our goals are for you to understand the advanced features of Flash, to become a confident power user, and to leave with an ACP qualification under your belt.

    Course Target Audience and delegate prerequisites:

    This course is intended for designers and developers who wish to enhance their existing knowledge of Flash.

    You will need basic experience in using Flash. Ideally, you will have taken our Adobe Flash CC Design Introduction 2 Day course.
