Add Certifications to Your Freelancer Profile

Adding certifications to your profile that you've earned outside of Upwork is a great way to show off your skills and qualifications.To add a certification:

  1. Go to Find Work > Profile
  2. Scroll down to the Certifications section and click the Add button
  3. Select a verifiable certification from the list and follow the instructions provided

By completing the verification process, your profile will feature the official certification logo, a 'verified' badge on your certification, and which can help you access opportunities that match your level of skill.

Your Upwork skills tests have their own section, so no need to add them as certifications.

If you try to enter a certification not on the list, you’ll have the opportunity to Suggest a Certification. Occasional additions will be made to the Add form as well as to the list below.

Upwork Status

Incident Status

Our records show your Upwork account is not active.

This might be due to no account activity (earnings, payments, contracts, etc.) or because we had to suspend it. When we suspend an account we send an email explaining the reason and whether or not you can take steps to reverse the suspension. Please review that email for more details.

For general questions, you can visit our Community or review our Terms of Service.

We’ll start a video chat with you. Please make sure you use a desktop device with a camera to continue the process. Also, allow Upwork temporary use of your camera and microphone. You may disable this access after the chat session.

If all of our agents are busy when you attempt to chat, please hold, and one of our agents will be with you shortly.

We noticed that you're currently using a browser that is not supported by our video verify process.

We recommend that you switch to Google Chrome or Firefox in order to successfully complete verification. Thank you
