YouTube Certified is a series of courses designed to help eligible creators and partners use advanced YouTube systems and tools.
Check if you're eligible
YouTube Certified courses are only available to creators and partners with a partner manager, or with Content ID.
In addition, to be eligible for YouTube Certified, you must:
- Have a Google account. Learn how to set up your Google Account.
- Be in ongoing compliance with all YouTube policies, including our Terms of Service and Community Guidelines.
Enrol in a course
If you're eligible, get in touch with your partner manager to enrol in a course. Your partner manager can help you understand which courses will be most helpful to take.
If you're an unmanaged partner but have access to content ID, select Get Support at the top right to contact the creator support team.
Complete your course
To complete a course:
- Complete the self-paced course materials.
