I am trying to complete the specialist challenge, however on Academy Browse section, I can see 6 other exams instead of 5. Which ones do I need to take?

Hi,

 

There is no specialist challenge certificate offered at this time. However, you are certainly willing to take any and all of the exams and competencies offered.

 

Personally, I would encourage you to take the following exams: Fundamentals, Search, Display, Mobile, Video, Shopping, Analytics. Then tackle Digital Sales and Mobile Sites. Once all of those are passed, then move on to any of the competencies that interests you. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Hi James,

 

I believe there is a certificate being offered at this time as I got an email saying its being offered in Australia and New Zealand, ending 31st March. I am assuming I need to do the first 5 you mentioned for the challenge, please let me know if that's not the case.

 

Regards

Hi Saksham,

 

Thanks for the additional info. We only cover North America and Canada here... with limited info and support to our friends around the world. 

 

With that said, The AdWords Specialist Challenge has always been about the following AdWords tests: Search, Display, Mobile, Video and Shopping. These are the five you must pass... and then you have to also pass the core competency: AdWords Fundamentals. Fundamentals does not provide a certificate or recognition since it is a core competency, however it must be passed to activate any of the other five. If someone passes any/all of the other five and does not pass Fundamentals, those other certifications will not be active nor will there be a certification or certificate earned. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
