I can share some information about the QuickBooks Desktop ProAdvisor Certification Exam.
Effective December 31, 2018, our Support Team will be discontinuing the QuickBooks Desktop Advanced Certification training modules and exam.
ProAdvisors who are currently QuickBooks Desktop Advanced Certified on or before the cutoff point, will have their certification status extended for 3 years. The lifetime status takes effect starting January 1, 2019, until January 1, 2022. There will be no new QuickBooks Desktop Advanced Certifications granted after this date.
