Coursera collaborates with Google to foster a global pool of skilled cloud talent

Coursera, an education-focused technology company, is announcing a collaboration with Google to offer Google Cloud Training courses on its platform. Developed and taught by Google experts, these courses will be available on-demand for any current or aspiring IT professionals and data engineers.

This week, Coursera is launching the first course in the Data Engineering on Google Cloud Specialization, “Big Data and Machine Learning.” This course will be the first in a 5-course Specialization. More foundational, intermediate, and advanced courses in infrastructure, machine learning, analytics, and application development are planned for launch soon.

With companies rapidly shifting their infrastructure to the cloud, the demand for cloud computing experts is enormous. In fact, adoption of cloud technology is often limited not by cost, complexity, or security, but by the shortage of trained professionals available to fill open roles in cloud systems administration, data engineering, application development, and more. Making this training more accessible is a major step toward creating a network of skilled professionals who can utilize the latest Google Cloud Platform technology to create innovative solutions to business challenges.

Commenting on this new association, Leah Belsky, Vice President of Global Enterprise Development at Coursera said: “Our mission is to enable anyone, anywhere to transform their life through access to the world’s best learning experience. A big part of that is about providing job-specific training in the hottest new fields. Cloud computing is one of the most in-demand career paths today, and we’re honored to collaborate with Google to offer the latest cloud courses online, making it easier for developers and IT professionals around the world to master Google Cloud Platform Services.”

Offering these courses on Coursera makes it highly convenient for current and aspiring IT professionals, data engineers, and anyone else to access high-quality cloud training on the latest tools and technologies. Through the Coursera platform, learners have the flexibility to take courses on their own schedules both on their computers and on a mobile app.
