Coursera Partners with Google to offer an IT Support Professional Certificate

I’m excited to say that I recently found out about Google partnering with Coursera, a popular e-learning platform to offer a six course program that culminates in an IT Support Professional Certificate. I received a scholarship to attend classes through Coursera’s partnership with Google and I enrolled in class today. I will be learning some very important information technology support fundamentals over the next 8-12 months direct from former Googler’s and some amazing people.

This certification will include the following courses:

  • Technical Support Fundamentals
  • The Bits and Bytes of Computer Networking
  • Operating Systems and You: Becoming a Power User
  • System Administration and IT Infrastructure Services
  • IT Automation: It’s not that scary!
  • IT Security: Defense against the digital dark arts

I look forward to starting the course and will be blogging about what I learn. Thank you to Coursera and Google for this opportunity and for those interested in joining me, please visit their website for more information:
