Google launches three new entry-level Professional Certificates on Coursera
They are designed to prepare learners for an entry-level role in under six months. The certificates don’t have any prerequisites.
The certificates can offer stepping stones to well-paying careers (not just in sports). They will serve a broad range of learners: new grads landing their first job, front-line workers seeking stable employment, mid-career professionals making a pivot, or parents planning their return to the workforce. Each certificate is completely online, self-paced, and costs $39 per month.
As sports teams embrace data analytics the traditonal skillset of a performance analyst is not longer enought to serverall teh aspects of data within a team environment. More and more jobs are asking for data skills, whether that be sql, python, R or data viz skills.
The google course in Data Analytics would offer a great opportunity to learn a range of skills around data processing, cleaning and visualisation.
In total there are 8 courses that make up the Professional Certification – you can find more details here.
