Our team was challenged to complete the adCenter Certification before March ‘11 by our manager. If I had to give a certification on pubCenter or the Bing API or PSAPI, I would have given it without a blink. I have worked on it for over 18 months and was very comfortable with it. With adCenter, it was a different story. I was relatively new and was just beginning to learn about the advertiser side of the business for a few months. There were too many things that I did not know. I decided to bite the bullet, put in some time and complete the certification as I hate to leave things for the last minute. I spent a full week of studying and practicing the different features of adCenter. I diligently went through all the awesome videos that adCenter certification provides.
