Google is headed back to college and it's bringing an IT Professional Certificate program to more than 25 community colleges to train graduates for the roughly 150,000 well-paying jobs currently open in IT in the United States. Over the course of the eight-month program, students will learn to manage and solve problems with computer systems and servers.

Google is headed back to college and it's bringing an IT Professional Certificate program to more than 25 community colleges to train graduates for the roughly 150,000 "well-paying jobs currently open in IT" in the United States. Over the course of the eight-month program, students will learn to manage and solve problems with computer systems and servers.

The program, which will be available in the 2018-2019 school year, stems from the Grow with Google program, which "helps workers improve their digital skills to prepare them for the new online economy." Students in the IT Professional Certificate program do not need to have previous experience or knowledge in order to apply, and roughly 40,000 people have already enrolled in the program. The cost of the program will depend on the community college where it is offered.

Students in the Google IT Professional Certificate program also have the opportunity to network with more than 20 top employers who are looking to hire IT support specialists, including Bank of America, Walmart, Sprint, GE Digital, PNC Bank, Infosys, TEKSystems, UPMC, and Google itself. Many of these top employers already offer tuition benefits, college scholarship and grant programs to help with recruitment and retention, as well as increase company loyalty.
