IT giant claims the 6-month courses are equivalent to four-year degrees at fraction of the cost

Google has announced plans to launch a series of professional courses that will train applicants with the fundamental skills for various in-demand jobs.

The courses, called Google Career Certificates, are designed so they can be completed in about six months.

In a blog on the program, Google Senior Vice-President of Global Affairs Kent Walker said: “College degrees are out of reach for many Americans, and you shouldn’t need a college diploma to have economic security. We need new, accessible job-training solutions—from enhanced vocational programs to online education—to help America recover and rebuild.”

Walker also said Google would consider the certificates as equivalent to four-year degrees for the related roles in their own hiring, reports American business magazine Inc.

The first three new Google Career Certificates will be in the career fields of Data Analytics, Project Management, and User Experience (UX) Design.

Furthermore, Google will fund 100,000 need-based scholarships and are committing $10 million in job training Google.org grants for communities across the US, in partnership with YWCA, NPower and JFF.
