Suggest new verified certification

Hello Upwork
So I couldn't find a way to suggest a new certification to be added to verified certification, I know that each of these certifications must be verifiable, but for example the certification Red Hat Certified Specialist in Containers and Kubernetes is verifiable in the exact same way Red Hat Certified Engineer is, although the later is available at upwork but the first is not.


Is there any process/form people should suggest verifiable certification in? I think this must be available especialy that custom certifications are limited to 2 or 3 custom certification IIRC.


Thanks in advance!

Hi NourEddine,


Only certifications listed in this help article can be added and validated. If you try to enter a certification not on the list, you’ll have the opportunity to add a custom certification. You may add up to two custom certifications.

You can suggest a certification that's not on the list and the team reviews suggestions and updates the list based on the demand from time to time. However, we won't be able to provide information for when your suggestion will be added.

Hello Nikola, Thanks for your response.
Where should I submit/send my suggestions?

Hi NourEddine,


I would be happy to provide more details. To be able to add a custom certification you need to go to your Profile > Certification section and click on the "+" icon to add a cerificate. If you try to enter a certification not on the list you will have an option to add a custom certificate


We keep track of suggested certification and will be updating certifications in the dropdown list based on them. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Yes, but this won't make it verified, and non-verifiable certificates are limited to only 2

Isn't there a way to suggest certificates that can be verified?

Given that some certificates can be verified in the exact same way as supported certificate, is in original post.

Hi NourEddine, 


Unfortunately, you can't suggest certificates to be added to the verified list, but I'll share your feedback with the team. Note that our team occasionally adds new certifications to the list.


Thank you.
