Adwords Exam- Expiration

Hey there, 

 

My Adwords certification expired in January of this year. Should I wait for it to lapse? Once it does lapse...do I simply do it over? 

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

 

You can take any of the certifications at any time. It's best to not let them expire... and I certainly would not wait any longer than you need to. Jump in... and do them now! Smiley Happy

 

Cheers,

 

James

Hi Janet,

 

You are very welcome... have fun and success with your testing!

 

Please note that if you fail one, you just have to wait seven days and then you can run another lap. If you fail one, you can immediately take a different one. If you take a test that is currently valid and fail it, your existing passed test will remain and you still remain validated until it expires. If you pass a test 9 months into a valid certificate period, you are validated for 12 months (but not 12+3). 

 

Tip: Many people will press through them all during the holidays. Smiley Happy

 

Cheers,

 

James
