Hi Andrew,

 

Great find. I wanted to take this last year, but it was not open to many of us. I just looked and see I have the test now, so thanks for the heads up. This is some of the training material, which you might find useful. 

 

I do plan to take it, since I have taken all of the rest. 

 

Cheers,

 

James

Hi Andrew,

 

Congratulations on the earned bling! Smiley Happy

 

I just came back from taking it... and passed with a 53/55. Not sure what two I missed but plan to retake when I have more time. Thanks for prompting me forward on this. 

 

Cheers,

 

James

Hi @Andrew Slattery

 

This exam has been a requirement for the reps of most of the Premier Partner program for a while. I first seen it back in 2013 and it covers common sense from a sales strategy side. It is a fun exam to take and way easier than the AdWords ones. 

 

Good luck!

Oh interesting - Premier status seems so far off in the future for my small agency, but awesome to know some of the aspects are making their way downstream to the regular partners as well.

Yes I went ahead and took the certification exam. It was very useful and I found myself empowered with the valuable information included. I highly recommend getting yourself certified.

Hey @Trevor_Stewart, how do you figure it is a requirement? I never heard of it being a requirement. Don't mean to downplay the exam itself, just wondering.

 

Thanks!

Hi @Julia_Muller,

 

Check with you Google rep, they will usually set up a link for your agency. I have seen it at a few agencies. 

 

The exam that I am referring to is for the sales team.
