an online pre-assessment test. The 50-question test covers six areas: Ads

areas: Pinterest Narrative, Ads Manager, and Optimization. During this time, your

Once you’ve completed the trainings, you’ll be instructed
to take an online post-assessment test that covers everything you learned in
your training sessions. To prepare for the test, it’s best to review the
session presentations and Pinterest
Business Resources and Guides. Similar to the pre-assessment, the post-assessment
test consists of 50 questions covering the six key areas of the platform. Once
you take the test and pass, you’re certified.
