Dreaming of working with Google, Microsoft and other IT giants but no experience? No worries. Google is now bringing an exciting opportunity.

It has teamed up with online education leader Coursera to offer a certificate course that will make you ready for entry-level IT support jobs in just 8-12 months, without any prior experience.

Here's all about Google's IT Support Professional Certificate.

In context: Google training rivals' employees, but why?

About
All you need to know about the course
The program will involve 64 hours of lessons, labs and evaluation in troubleshooting, customer service, automation, security and more.

With 8-10 hours a week, you can get it done in eight months. You can skip content you already know.

You can either choose only one of the six courses, or all.

Afterwards, you'll get the chance to share your information with top companies.

Here's how you can apply
To enroll, visit www.coursera.org/specializations/google-it-support. The program costs $49, roughly Rs. 3,100. There are limited scholarships for "qualified US residents who need support." For financial aid, apply on the same site by February 20. You must enroll by February 27. Participating nonprofits may select deserving candidates.


Why
Why is Google training rivals' prospective employees?
According to Google's CEO Sundar Pichai, "There are 150,000 open positions in IT support and predicted to grow faster than most other occupations through 2026."

At such a phase, training employees who might never work at your company is the new recruiting tool, a Coursera spokesperson said.

The cost per person will be $400-600, but investing in the broader workforce might have bigger benefits.
