This five-course certificate, developed 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 in a small business or at a global company like Google.
Through a dynamic mix of video lectures, quizzes, and hand-on labs and widgets, the programme 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 whose own foundation in IT support served as a jumping off point for their careers.
By dedicating 8-10 hours a week, you can complete the certificate in about eight months. You can skip through content that you might already know and speed ahead to the graded assessments.

Course 1 – Technical Support Fundamentals
Course 2 – The Bits and Bytes of Computer Networking
Course 3 – Operating Systems and You: Becoming a Power User
