Course Content

We’ve designed this course to be a complete resource for you to learn how to use Google Cloud to pass the Associate Cloud Engineer Certification Exam!

As you may have heard, Google Cloud is growing at a tremendous rate, with almost 50% YoY growth, and has a higher growth rate than overall cloud. Since Google has some of the most advanced data and machine learning offerings of any cloud provider, it makes sense to get skilled in this highly in-demand field today.

Why become Google Cloud Certified?

Google Cloud is the fastest growing cloud platform, with certification holders receiving huge tangible benefits to their careers.

In this course, we’ll teach you how to make data-driven decisions by collecting, transforming, and publishing data. This certification preparatory course will show you how to use Google Cloud to design, build, and operationalize data systems that can run at the scale of Google.
