”Certifications make up for all that crap you learned.” – The Guru.
The GAIQ: Well, it’s official.
My name is Gregory Cox, and I decided to get my Google Analytics Individual Qualification (GAIQ) from Google. Took the test last week, passed with flying colors, thought you might want to know.
What is the Google Analytics IQ Test?
Google describes the The Google Analytics Individual Qualification (or Google Analytics IQ) as “a proof of proficiency in Google Analytics that is available to any individual who has passed the Google Analytics IQ test”.
Anyone can use Google analytics. But only a few of us can use it well. This Google Analytics test qualifies me as an individual that knows his GA stuff; a person who can delve into your website traffic from the past, and then predict your future with greater accuracy, discover what’s working – and what’s not.
This gives Think Around Corners a competitive advantage in your competitive online world. No website is perfect. Web Analytics gives you the ability to improve, improve, improve.
What’s the next step for more certifications?
Since getting the certification was kinda fun, we’re going to continue getting them!
We’re definitely going for the Google Analytics Certified Partners (GACP) program, which is a company-wide certification. This is a rare bunch of companies that we hope to join the ranks of very soon. It requires a rigorous qualification, including business requirements (like indemnity insurance) and preferred qualities (like getting my employees GAIQ qualified, too), as well as flying to Mountain View and getting grilled by experts, as well as these requirements:
