Google has announced the launch of what they have called "Professional Certificates", four 120-hour economic trainings that say they require no prior knowledge and with which they intend to improve the employability of people.
The trainings are taught through Coursera and are Project Management, User Experience Design, Data Analysis and IT Support. The first three can be taken in English with subtitles, and the fourth in English and Spanish.
From Google they explain that with all of them they want to help overcome what they conclude from a report they have commissioned: that Europe may have a shortage of up to 6 million workers in areas that require digital skills, despite the fact that today there may be excesses.
5,000 scholarships in Information Technology and collaboration with SEPE, Labor and NGOs
In addition to the four announced certifications, Google has announced 5,000 scholarships for specialized online training in the Information Technology Support certificate. This offer stems from a collaboration with Fundae, SEPE and the support of the Ministry of Labor and Social Economy and local NGOs.
Professional Certificates are endorsed by advertising agencies such as Accenture Interactive, Dentsu, Havas Media Group, IPG Mediabrands, Making Science, Labelium, Omnicom Media Group, Publicis Groupe, t2ó, and WPP, in case users have doubts about what type of company sees this proposal favorably.
With this offer, Google thus adds more courses to the simple eight that we have already talked about in Genbeta, in which they teach more basic things such as preparing a resume or creating an online company.
