How to Qualify for Adwords Certification?

Discussion in 'Google AdWords' started by jorgepson, Feb 27, 2013.

    I have read that taking the certification exam for google adwords is quite difficult. there 100 items and the allotted time is only 2 hours. There are several basic questions as they say but what frustrates me on the said certification is the time.

    Question: What if I don't pass the certification how many attempts do google offers for the qualification? And If I pass what will be my advantages among the non certified adwords manager?

    Thanks, by the way how many months before google updated their questionnaire?

    I had a friend do this. I cannot answer specifics, I'm sure others will later. However I can tell you that my friend never once was asked about any certification. It always came down to how much ad spend have you managed before and how were the ROI.

    For more information you can go to http://www.google.com/intl/en/adwords/professionals/.

    For the individual certification, you must pass two different timed exams. Total cost will be $100.If you fail a test you will have to retake it at an additional cost of $50 for each test each time.

    Google does offer a training program both textual and video. This training program consist of everything from basics on setting up an account to the advanced. So I cannot tell you how much time it will take to learn. you will have to go in and look at the different topics and decide what you need to learn more about.

    If you do a Google search you can find examples of the tests that are given. You can practice to determine if you are close to being ready.

    also note that for each exam you must pay 50$
    there are 2 to 4 exams to be paid depending of your level of certification.
    i can provide a voucher with 200 EUR value to take 2 or all 4 exams.

    DO NOT PAY 200$ - BUY MY VOUCHER AND PAY JUST 50$ !

    It helps to have some experience using AdWords. If you have that and quickly scan the material, you should be fine. It's not *that* difficult to pass. :)

    I've taken the exam twice a year ago and found it challenging. Spent a week studying on Google's Conversion University. Looking to take a refresher next week.
