I passed Google's Digital Analytics Fundamentals in Oct 2013. I still have my certification yet in my Partner account it does not show up and is requiring me to take the same exam again? I verified I am using the same email account. Please advise as to how to get my status corrected? Thank you

Hi :-)
The courses and certificates offered by Analytics Academy were first course run certificates of participation/completion and only available for download for a limited time. They are not the Analytics IQ certification (formal GA certification for individuals).

Analytics IQ certification is for individuals and is a 90min exam of which the analytics academy courses form part of the study material. The certification once passed is valid for 18mths and the exam must be redone every 18mths for it to remain current. Having the certification provides you with an online verifiable link via your GA Partner profile if you have it set to Public.
