Add certification?

Someone enlighten me on what "certification" a writer needs to add to their profile. My profile completeness has been taken down from 100% to 95% and I now apparently need to add certification to make my profile 100% complete. Of course, this has also meant that Upwork gets to take away my hard-earned Top Rated Badge for this flimsy reason but hey am just a freelancer so maybe half of my job is jumping through the hoops Upwork throws my way.

If you don't have a certificate, you (obviously) can't add one. 

However, you don't need one, you can bring your profile back to 100% in various ways, the most obvious would be to put back whatever you removed to drop to 95%... Just adding one portfolio item will do the trick for example.

 

Read this or see below:

 

Portfolio Item

5% each (max 20%)

Employment History Item10% each (max 20%)

Education

10% each (max 20%)

Profile Video10% 
Linked Account10% (max 10%)
Certification5% each (max 10%)
Other Experience5% (max 5%)
 

 

Hi 
I am facing the same problem but I am new here
and I have filled all the information that I have. Upwork is asking to add a certification that I dont have, 
What should I do?

Basically the same as was suggested just above....

Read this or see below:

 

Portfolio Item

5% each (max 20%)

Employment History Item10% each (max 20%)

Profile Video10% 
Linked Account10% (max 10%)
Certification5% each (max 10%)
Other Experience5% (max 5%)
 
You only have one portfolio item (which isn't enough anyway, and yours is in such bad English I'd take it out), so adding 3 more will give you an additional 15%.
If you need more after that, a profile video would add another 10%

I have made an animated video explaining the services I provide, and what grammatical mistakes are you talking about, is it in my overview? and I am trying to add some more designs to the portfolio, but it's not allowing me, might be some internet issue. 

Hi Maryam,

 

I would like to clarify that at the moment you can only add a certification only that is on our list Here. If you're trying to add a certification that is not on our list, you can add it as a portfolio item at any time. Thank you.

That's no longer the case. It's now possible to add up to 2 others that aren't on the list.
