How does Amex calculate Marriot points. It doesn’t seem to be calculated properly.  Is there somewhere that I can see how the points were earned, it’s not matching up with what I believe it should be

Does Amex prorate annual fee if I cancel 30 or 60 days after I pay the AF?
I personally don't think the Cat 1 - 5 cert is worth the $125 AF, especially since I don't have any particular plans to use it right now.
However if the Cert posts 30 - 60 days after AF is paid, and I can get prorated AF refunded, it would make sense for me to do that.

Maybe not. I'm seeing them offered for $120 expiring within few months, or up to  $160. Not worth the hassle. I wouldn't keep a card open for the potential to make up to $40 profit on a sale.

So does Amex offer prorated refund on AF?
