The following path will guide you along as you build your Google Cloud skills. With each course, you will prepare further to succeed in successfully obtaining the associated certification and/or to apply the critical skills you will need to succeed in the enterprise. Once you complete this comprehensive learning path, you will truly be prepared to take your place amongst the Google Cloud experts in your field.
We designed this learning path to give students a solid foundation in I.T. and Google Cloud fundamentals that will serve as a springboard into intermediate certification and deep dive courses. When you complete this learning path, you will have the required knowledge and skills to enroll in any Google Cloud Certification (associate level) course.
In this entry level learning path, you’ll prepare for your first role as a Google cloud engineer. You’ll begin with by learning Linux, the operating system that powers much of the cloud. Next, you’ll be introduced to core concepts of cloud computing and gain a better understanding of the purpose of platforms like Google Cloud, before diving into Python, a programming language that will help you work with the different services you’ll interact with as a cloud engineer. Finally, you’ll learn the Google Cloud Platform from a high level before preparing for a certification that will help you earn your first job as a Google cloud engineer. As an entry level Google cloud engineer, you’ll help implement basic features, maintain existing infrastructure, and assisting in managing your organization’s cloud infrastructure. Your job responsibilities may include writing code to join various parts of your organization’s systems, implementing solutions that have been designed by senior engineers, and working with various departments within the company, both technical and non technical, to maintain a reliable, scalable system. This is an entry level learning path, so all you need is a basic understanding of how to use a personal computer, and an interest in developing new skills. Prior experience in a technical role is helpful but not required.
