If you didn’t add to your information bank this year, I think you should consider taking some free certifications programs from Google. You can learn them at your pace and earn yourself a world recognized certificate from Google.
This information was shared by on twitter by @Chris Staud, and I thought to share it here for some you that are not on the bird app.
Google provides certifications in Programming, Business, Digital Marketing, Project Management, and so much more. Some are free; however, most cost a few hundred dollars. Here is how you can get the paid ones for free.
1. Coursera’s “financial aid” option. All courses have this option available. And there’s no limit on the amount of courses either. It’s great to see this pathway provided to assist countries that have lower purchasing power. Great guide on it here:
2. U.S based? Coursera has launched The American Dream Academy. It helps job-seekers gain skills & credentials to pivot into tech careers. Google certs avail in: • Data Analytics • UX Design • Project Management • IT Support • Digital Marketing
3. Google has partnered with companies in Sub-Saharan Africa to provide scholarships. List of companies you can apply through are in the link.
4. There are a lot Google sponsored programs for free certifications, these are just a few. You can type into Google search “free google certifcations <your country>” to see more programs.
