Common questions

A certification I earned doesn’t appear in the list of options. Can I get it added?

If a certification you earned isn’t listed, submit a request to Pluralsight Support (opens email form) and we’ll look into adding it to the list.

Why is it that a certification I added to my A Cloud Guru profile doesn’t appear correctly on my Skills profile?

Certifications you added to your ACG profile in the Other category may not have carried over correctly to your Skills profile. Try adding the certification again from the list of providers on Skills. Remember, if a certification you earned isn’t listed as an option, you can submit a request to Pluralsight Support (opens email form).

If my certification expires, will it disappear from my profile?

Certifications will remain on your profile even after they expire—but of course it’s good practice to recertify. Learn more about Certification paths and exam preparation on Skills or Learning and exam prep on ACG.

My certification doesn’t have a .pdf option on Credly. How do I upload it?

If you want to add a certificate that appears on your Credly profile, you’ll need to obtain a .pdf of the certificate from the certification provider. For example, to upload your AWS certification to your Skills profile, you must download it from your AWS Training and Certification account (external site, opens in new tab).
