How the course works

This course is designed to put you in the position of an agency account coordinator responsible for managing a campaign in DoubleClick Search. In DoubleClick Search, this user type is called an Agency user.

Each module begins and ends with an email to you from the search manager of our fictitious agency "AdStomp," a world-class agency that partners with DoubleClick to traffic ads for their clients. The search manager will lay out the tasks that you'll need to learn for each module and will appear through the course to give you tips and advice.

Each module of the course addresses a different topic. You can navigate to each module using the navigation on the right.

We expect the course to take around 90 minutes. If you're already familiar with some of the content, it's okay to skip ahead to modules to find exactly what you need to learn.

After you finish the course, you can take the Fundamentals Exam (a score of 80% or higher is required to pass). When you pass the exam, you’ll get a printable certificate of completion demonstrating your knowledge of the Fundamentals of DoubleClick Search.
