Why did Google create this program?
Google has long faced an issue that many other companies also contend with -- we had open IT Support roles, and not enough qualified candidates to fill them. So, a few years ago we began working with a non-profit organization to build out trainings and pathways to roles in technical support at Google. We learned that not only is IT support a highly teachable field, but that we could teach someone completely new to the industry the IT fundamentals in under six months. So, we decided to build an IT training program on Coursera, created entirely by Googlers who are expert in IT support, so that this training could be available to everyone.
What background knowledge is necessary?
None! Whether you’re completely new to the field or have had some exposure to IT, this is the right program for you. If you’re already familiar with the subject matter, you can skip directly to the graded assessments.
Do I need to take the courses in a specific order?
We highly recommend taking the courses in the order presented, as the content builds on information from earlier lessons.
Why start a career in IT?
With jobs in IT fetching a median salary of $53,470 per year, this field is extremely lucrative with a high potential for growth. In the US alone, there are over 215,000 open IT support roles, and jobs in this field are projected to grow 8% between 2019 and 2029 --- faster than the average of all other occupations. Basic IT skills will position you to secure an entry-level role, and from then on, the opportunities are endless. The stackability of these skills means that after gaining a baseline level of knowledge through the Google IT Support program, it is easy to pick up more advanced skills.
