Google announced that it will provide 9,000 educational scholarships for its “Career Certificates”, an initiative aimed at providing practical skills in the digital sector in programming areas and thereby boosting employment in Argentina.
This assistance will be carried out in collaboration with various organizations, such as IT Community, Fundación Pescar, Potrero Digital and Civic House, through its WorkerTech program. These courses will be taught on the Coursera platform, and certifications will be available in areas such as information technology support, data analysis, project management, and user experience (UX) design.
All training is done in virtual mode, with participants having access to resources such as educational videos, reading material and tasks at any time through web platforms or mobile devices.
These asynchronous courses last approximately 6 months if you dedicate 10 hours per week, and are designed to be flexible and to suit those who already have employment, study or other family responsibilities.
Once participants complete the program, they will receive a certificate endorsed by Google that recognizes the knowledge gained during the course.
