I have successfully completed 2 exams and affiliated with my company's partner account.

 

But Under:  Partner Status > Company certifications > 

Certified individuals > Certification status > it says  "No certifications"

 

So how do I get the certification even after passing 2 exams?

Hi,

 

There are no certifications offered by Google Partners any longer as all training, testing, and certifications are now handled entirely by the Academy for Ads platform. 

 

Further, please note that AdWords products certifications can only come once AdWords Fundamentals is passed. AdWords Fundamentals is the core competency exam that validates the others that you pass. So if you pass AdWords Search and AdWords Display but not AdWords Fundamentals... you are not certified in anything. Once you pass AdWords Fundamentals, Search and Display would become validated. 

 

Also, it can take several days for the certifications to sync with the Google Partners account... and you would have needed to take the certifications with the same email that is used with your Google Partners account. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
