I passed the 2017 QBO Advanced Exam. When I log into my Account, I see a New version of the exam and a “Take Exam” button. Does that mean I have to retake the exam?

I have already passed the 2017 QuickBooks Online Advanced Certified exam in July 2018, and now when I log into my ProAdvisor Center, I see that there is a New version of this exam with the “Take Exam” button and a message indicating that my advanced certification will retire on November 30. Does that mean that I will no longer be advanced certified and that I have to take the 2018 advanced certification exam to become advanced certified again?


Yes and no. Certification is an annual rite of passage. Good news is your recertification now is on new features and and is a shorter exam.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
