I took some time to do the IT course “Grow with Google – IT Support Specialist Certificate”. It wasn’t as much to learn things as to prove to myself that I knew a thing or two about IT. The course as I expected was easy in many areas, but it did start proving difficult because it covers such a broad range of areas. There were also topics discussed like CIDR format which I was intrigued by only to find I already knew exactly what it was, I just didn’t realize it had a special name. I learned terminology and some of the background inter-workings of things that I didn’t previously know so it was definitely nice to have some supplemental training on topics I’ve already been exposed to.
I’d recommend it for most people, especially those that have some beginning knowledge in IT already. Some of the first courses that took me next to no time to complete like the system administration stuff, I felt would be hard for someone that had never been involved with Linux or Windows. However, I went straight to the labs and skipped over material, so I can’t make an official opinion of it.
