The Google Career Certificates are a suite of flexible online training programs hosted on Coursera. They require no prior relevant experience or degree and are designed to provide learners with job-ready skills in high-growth fields in under six months. The certificates launched in the US in 2018 with the IT Support Professional certificate. On 11th March 2021, three new specializations were added: Data Analysis, Project management and UX Design.
With over 8 courses, you can gain in-demand skills that prepare you for an entry-level job. You’ll learn from Google employees whose foundations in data analytics served as launchpads for their own careers. At under 10 hours per week, you can complete the certificate in less than 6 months.
This program includes over 180 hours of instruction and hundreds of practice-based assessments, which will help you simulate real-world data analytics scenarios that are critical for success in the workplace.
The content is highly interactive and exclusively developed by Google employees with decades of experience in data analytics. Through a mix of videos, assessments, and hands-on labs, you’ll get introduced to analysis tools and platforms and key analytical skills required for an entry-level job.
Scholarships for the new Google Career Certifications are now available, and the Eastern Carolina Workforce Development Board is excited to help bring these scholarships to our community.

Because of our commitment to continued excellence in job readiness training, we have partnered with Grow with Google to bring these courses to learners at no cost.
