Edit: July 2012 – new GAIQ Test released by Google
I have passed my Google Analytics Individual Qualification (IQ) test on 31 December 2009. It has been on my to-do list since they announced it earlier this year. Happy that I’ve been able to check that out of my to-do for the new coming year, with a respectable score of 91%.

The Google Analytics Individual Qualification is a proof of proficiency in Google Analytics that is available to any individual who has passed the Google Analytics IQ test.
The difference between the Google Analytics IQ and Qualified Company is a bit fuzzy. The Certification isn’t easy; you better be ready even if the Conversion University videos seems very straight forward. Still, it’s a way less arduous process than companies goes through for the Google Analytics Consultant. DJ Kennedy has some suggestion to help circumvent this Google Analytics program issue.
