Do You Need Enrollment in the Google AdWords Professional Program to take the AdWords Exam?

Google has a requirement -- at least, the site says so -- that you need to be enrolled in the Google Professional Program to be considered for the AdWords exam. But is it really required?

AdWordsPro thinks so (but unfortunately isn't 100% sure). I think that if it says it's required, it probably is.

The question is: is Google really strictly enforcing this requirement? Search Engine Roundtable readers: do you know? Have any of you ever tried to register for the exam (which is paid) and had the course enrollment requirement be an obstacle?

Let us know in the comments.

A while ago (over 2 years)I tried to take the exam but wasn't associated with an Adwords account and the test service wouldn't allow me to take the exam. I also wonder if you can transfer the certification. I am certified under my current companies log in and if i leave or move does my qualification(of paying for and passing the exam) move with me?
