Getting Certified As A Google Adwords Professional

Google Adwords Advertising Professional Certification Program

These days, individuals who have been certified by their respective industry bodies as being expertly competent tend to be more of a favourable choice among potential employers than those who are not. Although this does not necessarily mean they would eventually be reporting for work anytime soon, it only goes to reflect the advantage of getting yourself certified in your area of expertise.

From a company’s perspective, it’s really about building the brand and reputation, not to mention the benefits that may come along as well. In my previous job at a local start-up, we had 24/7 technical support from Microsoft, mainly because we were a Microsoft Certified Partner.

Where advertising online with Adwords is concerned, the people at Google have introduced the Google Advertising Professionals certification program. The program is meant for both individuals and companies alike, that manages one or more Adwords account either for themselves or their clients. Although it is not a necessity to undergo this program to run successful Adwords campaigns, doing so will likely improve the confidence of clients and future businesses. Not forgetting, the promotional credits you will be receiving on your Adwords campaigns as well.

In summary, there is nothing for you to lose out on. If you’re already good at what you do, the certification enhances your reputation and builds your credibility as an Adwords professional. If you are just starting out, the Learning Centre can help sharpen your knowledge. When you are ready, you can apply to take the exam for US$50.

Finally, only companies based in EMEA locations are eligible currently.
