About the Program

This five-course certificate, developed exclusively by Google, includes innovative curriculum designed to prepare you for an entry-level role in IT support. A job in IT can mean in-person or remote help desk work, either in a small business or at a global company, like Google. Whether you’ve been tinkering with IT or are completely new to the field, you’ve come to right place.

Through a dynamic mix of video lectures, quizzes, and hands-on labs and widgets, this certificate program will introduce you to troubleshooting and customer service, networking, operating systems, system administration, and security. 

Along the way, you’ll hear from Googlers with unique backgrounds and perspectives, whose own foundation in IT support served as a jumping off point for their careers. They’re excited to go on this journey with you, as you invest in your future by achieving an end-of-program certificate. If you dedicate 8-10 hours a week to the courses, you can complete the certificate in about eight months. You can also skip through any content that you might already know and speed ahead to the graded assessments.
