Google and UIW logosBuild job-ready skills you can put to work with Google Career Certificates now available at UIW School of Professional Studies.

Nearly two-thirds of all new jobs created since 2010 require either high- or medium-level digital skills,1 but 1 in 3 American workers have very limited or no digital skills2. To help bridge that gap, Google has trained more than 8 million Americans on digital skills to date and invested in building programs to help create pathways to high-quality jobs.


Google Career Certificates provide job seekers with access to more than 1.6 million in-demand jobs through rapid reskilling, without the need for a college degree or prior experience in the fields of data analytics, digital marketing and e-commerce, IT support, project management, and user experience (UX) design. These certificates are taught and developed by Google employees working in these fields, and the content is hands-on, practical, and rigorous. The certificates can be completed in 3 to 6 months with 5 to 10 hours per week.
