Google has started an educational program in order to help people train for jobs in IT support. The gist is that if you take the course, which costs $50 a month on Coursera, in eight to twelve months you can earn the certificate that carries weight with some of Google's partners such as BOA, Walmart, Sprint, and GE. Today, we’re launching the Google IT Support Professional Certificate hosted on Coursera—a first-of-its-kind online program to prepare people for roles in IT support. With no previous experience required, beginning learners can become entry-level job ready in eight to 12 months. This program is part of Grow with Google, our initiative to help people get the skills they need to find a job.
