Bumping this for the same problem.
To provide a bit more context:
Upwork requires that you provide your Academy for Ads profile so they can verify that you have the certification. This means you must have a public profile. However, it appears that as of January 2018 Academy for Ads is no longer allowing profiles to be publically shown (https://support.google.com/partners/answer/7533989).
How, then, can we provide this verification?
