Google today revealed the launch of four brand-new certification and training programs for cloud designers and engineers: Specialist Cloud Designer, Expert Cloud Network Engineer(beta) and Expert Cloud Security Engineer(beta), in addition to a new G Suite accreditation
The G Suite accreditation sticks out a bit because it’s less expensive ($75) and far less technical than its counterparts in today’s release, but as Google notes, the overall idea here to resolve the “cloud skills crisis.” The reason for the G Suite course, Google says, is that the “key to an effective cloud change is developing skills throughout the organization.” To guarantee this, the G Suite test tests your knowledge in essential functions of Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Drive and other G Suite tools. If you’re extremely technical, that may seem unneeded, but for lots of, making the relocation from Workplace to G Suite is undoubtedly rather a challenge.
The other examinations, like the Cloud Designer accreditations, test your capability to design, develop, test, handle and secure applications on the Google Cloud Platform They tend to cost around $200 and can be found in the form of multiple choice examinations. To prepare for them, you can study with the assistance of both on-demand and instructor-led courses from Coursera and other Google partners
Google notes that IT managers have a tough time discovering prospects with the ideal skills, so it’s trying to resolve this with these brand-new certification programs and the accompanying training tools.
