Google's new certificate program takes only six months to complete, and will be a fraction of the cost of college.
Quote:
Google recently made a huge announcement that could change the future of work and higher education: It's launching a selection of professional courses that teach candidates how to perform in-demand jobs.

These courses, which the company is calling Google Career Certificates, teach foundational skills that can help job-seekers immediately find employment. However, instead of taking years to finish like a traditional university degree, these courses are designed to be completed in about six months.

"College degrees are out of reach for many Americans, and you shouldn't need a college diploma to have economic security," writes Kent Walker, senior vice president of global affairs at Google. "We need new, accessible job-training solutions--from enhanced vocational programs to online education--to help America recover and rebuild."

Walker then revealed the following on Twitter:

"In our own hiring, we will now treat these new career certificates as the equivalent of a four-year degree for related roles."
Quote:
Google didn't say exactly how much the new courses would cost. But a similar program Google offers on online learning platform Coursera, the Google IT Support Professional Certificate, costs $49 for each month a student is enrolled. (At that price, a six-month course would cost just under $300--less than many university students spend on textbooks in one semester alone.) Additionally, Google said it would fund 100,000 needs-based scholarships in support of the new programs.

Higher education has been ripe for disruption for a long time. And while Google's recent announcement may not be the final nail in the coffin, it's a move with major potential to change the future of education and work.

Get a certificate, find a job
One of the main criticisms of higher education through the years has been that universities don't properly equip students with the real-world skills they need in the workplace, and leave them in debt for years as they struggle to pay back student loans.

In contrast, Google claims their courses, which would cost a fraction of a traditional university education, prepare students to immediately find work in high-paying, high-growth career fields.
Quote:
The three new programs Google is offering, together with the median annual wage for each position (as quoted by Google), are:
  • Project manager ($93,000)
  • Data analyst ($66,000)
  • UX designer ($75,000)
It's all about your talent stack.

pretty sure it is... read the profiles and messages.

I mean, I could foresee something like this being real, but i think this specific site is parody.

Just wait for the familiar dynamic of young Standard Range owners looking to get with older, wealthy Model X Performance owners.

Tesla China talks about the new 1-piece rear casting that eliminates 70 parts from the original design and saves 30% weight (for the unit not the car)
https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/wi1M9XXlNZoyPlk2uOPnNw

Also improves safety metric by 20% and allows 100% raw material utilization. Leftover aluminum from stamping is recycled into casting.

Fremont and Shanghai will both have these machines running soon.

On Kato road. I don't think it's a coincidence. The " I'm not gonna crack tweet has everyone speculating.
Why the rumors are flying.

that render looks good. Tesla needs to evolve their design ques, but a hatch like that would pique my interest.

Absolute garbage.

That course is basically an intro to IT. Anyone under 50 that has used a computer for more than checking e-mail will learn very little.


But hey, I became Google IT certified in 6 weeks....

The point is that it is entry level as an alternative to 4 years /w debt load. 6 months of UX design is sufficient to get started. 6 months of PM training will be fine for people with an aptitude for it and 6 years won't help people without the aptitude.

IT Certs are great if you just want to sit around resetting people's passwords all day and installing software. We're close to having AI software that can do that.

They reached back to year 2000 and pulled one of out of the Microsoft certification playbook. Those days were fun. "I'm Microsoft certified".

we used to call them paper engineers

weirdest ones were the QA "graduates" this local school was pumping out. all of them from Ukraine or Russia. interviewed a few but never hired one.

I suspect the Google training will be legit if the candidate is engaged and has an average aptitude. We gotta find something more effective and cheaper than University for filling entry level tech jobs. It shouldn't cost you $100k of debt to get the skills for a typical role.

Just curious, are most of the Tesla self driving accidents reported in the news happen in cars with the base Autopilot software of full self-driving software?

Have you taken or looked into thd course?

Seriously, itís intro to IT for older boomers.

Edit: I agree completelt with you, but the Google program is far from a good example.

I don't think the FSD is released to the public yet.

The way I understand it is that Autopilot is for cruising down the road. Summon is for parking lots. FSD is for filling in the gap between those things; door-to-door.

Someone with a Tesla confirm?

I have not looked into the Google course material yet, so I'll gladly take your word for it. That would be an under-performance for Google who usually does above-average on things. This kind of training can be done well, but it might have to cost more than $50/month to get it until you can do it at scale. We will get there.
