I am interested in an individual certification to get the certificate. Do I need to be affiliated with a company?

Hi @Chuck B,

 

No, you do not need to affiliated with a company. Individuals become certified by taking the AdWords Fundamentals Exam plus one more for a AdWords product (Shopping, Mobile, Search, Display, Video). Once you pass, you will be a certified AdWords individual for 12 months. You will have to retake to remain.

 

Please take a look at this information from AdWords regarding the process. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
