I am trying to add a certificate of completion from Udemy, but there is no Add a custom certification button, there is just "suggest a certification", and that doesn`t do much.
in (select your certification button) try to search your certificate, and when your certification is not included, you will see a green text says (add a custom certification) click it.
Unfortunately, if a certification you are trying to add isn't available in the drop down menu, Upwork won't be able to validate it. You can still suggest for it to be added in the future and can use the portfolio section to show your certification provided there is no contact information in it.
I know Upwork has business ties with Udemy, although it's exact nature is unknown to me. I too have been doing courses on Udemy, and was wondering if in the foreseeable future that they would be available as certified options?
If your certification is not available on the list, you may suggest that certification and it will then be reviewed by our Engineers. Please see the screenshot below. Once our team completes the review, it will then show on the list.
Hi type above -Select Your Certification- zone the name of certification, then a message will tell you if you want to suggest this certification confirm by click then fulfil your information.
Hi Upwork team,
I suggested two Finance/Accounting-related custom certifications (ACMA by CIMA; CGMA by AICPA) to be added a week or two ago. These two are supposedly well-known in the industry and globally - should not take much time to verify. However, I have not heard back anything yet...
How long could that verification process take? (or perhaps my request did not go through and I have to re-submit?)
Thanks in advance!
The team reviews all recommendations for certifications freelancers submit through the form and evaluate them based on demand and other factors. Unfortunately, we aren't able to provide any timeframe for when certificates you recommended will be added.
Thanks for your feedback.
