    About Google Cloud Certification Training

    Google Cloud’s role-based certifications measure an individual’s proficiency at performing a specific job role using Google Cloud technology. The knowledge, skills, and abilities required for each job role are assessed using rigorously developed industry-standard methods. Google Cloud certifications empower individuals to advance their careers and give employers the confidence to build highly-skilled, effective teams.

    Every Google Cloud certification starts with a formal study called Job Task Analysis (JTA). During the JTA, a panel of subject matter experts identifies the knowledge, skills, abilities, and experience required of an individual to perform the tasks in a specific job role, and creates a detailed job description. These skills are described in the exam-specific exam guides and job descriptions here.

    An exam guide provides the blueprint for developing exam questions and guides candidates studying for an exam. While we encourage candidates to prepare themselves by answering questions on any topic in an exam guide, Google does not guarantee that every topic within an exam guide will be assessed.

    A digital badge and certificate are issued after a candidate passes an exam, and the candidate’s exam performance is verified. Each certificate contains a sequential number that reflects the candidate’s position among the growing list of Google Cloud-certified individuals.

    Unless explicitly stated in the detailed exam descriptions, all Google Cloud certifications are valid for two years from the date certified. Candidates must recertify to maintain their certification status. Renewal notifications are sent 90, 60, and 30 days before the certification expiration date.

    Why get a Google Cloud Certification?

    For individuals, it's a way to demonstrate expertise and validate your ability to transform businesses with Google Cloud technology.

    According to the 2020 Google Cloud certification impact report:

    • Google Cloud certifications are among the highest-paying IT certifications of 2022.

    • 78% feel more confident in their professional future

    • 82% can prove their cloud skill competency to recruiters

    • 85% feel more confident in their cloud skills

    For organisations, it validates your teams’ technical capabilities while demonstrating your commitment to the fast pace of the cloud.

    As the managing director of Fourcast BVBA shares:

    "What certification offers that experience doesn’t is peace of mind. I’m not only talking about self-confidence, but also for our customers. Having us certified, working on their projects, really gives them peace of mind that they’re working with a partner who knows what they’re doing."

    Magda Jary, Head of Google Cloud Credentials and Certifications, investing in the cloud entails an investment in your people. Google cloud certifications help teams to:

    • Speed up technology implementation - Cloud certifications help you maximise your technology investment.

    • Improve client satisfaction and success - Fully certified teams can meet most client objectives.

    • Motivate your team and retain talent - When leaders invest in skills training, talent tends to stick around.

    • Finish your projects ahead of schedule - Cloud certifications equip teams with the skills needed to handle workloads.
