Exclamation Help with Calculating Dates

I am creating a training matrix where I have the date of training and then I have a drop down box for re-cert identifying when the training expires (i.e. 1 year, 2 year, 5 year). I am hoping to find a way to automatically populate the re-certification date based on the date of the training and the drop down selection chosen,

i.e.
Date of training : December 6, 2012

Selection: 2 years

Can I have it automatically calculate that re-certification is December 6, 2015 without having to change the formula each time?

Many thanks!!!!

S

I'm not sure how you get 2015 if the date of training is 2012 and you add 2 years.
Assuming that is a typo:

Date of training: A1
Selection: B1

Recertification: =edate(A1,b1*12)
