Adwords Certifications - Expiration Date

I took all of my adwords certifications at different times in 2017, most recently Display in December. Now I am looking at the expiration dates in the new academy for ads and they are all in May 2018. That means I was certified for 5 months before having to retake. Is this a mistake?

Hi Danielle,

 

The Search, Display, Mobile, Shopping, and Video certifications are tied to the AdWords Fundamentals exam and will only show valid for as long as the AdWords Fundamentals exam is valid. Once you retake the Fundamentals exam and pass, your other certifications will show the the full term of each exam, which will be 12 months from the time each one was earned. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
