If you are struggling to understand what Google Digital Garage is, kindly take a sip of hot water and relax. The digital garage is an online platform for mastering digital skills where interested candidates are expected to partake in passing 23 modules. Such modules include a variety of subjects such as marketing fundamentals, search, email, social media, video, ecommerce, geo-targeting and analytics. This free online certification course is a partnership between Google UK and Interactive Advertising Bureau UK (IAB).
One interesting question is why someone should care about this certification. If you are one of those who are ambitious enough to learn how to leverage the power of web 2.0 in either their businesses or research, then you should care to enrol. Additionally, if you are a student or a graduate that is struggling to get a job then you also have all the reasons to join.
If you feel the urge to join the course, you will need to sign up with your email via https://digitalgarage.withgoogle.com/certification, and you will receive your online plan. Once you received the program, you may decide to watch the 23 videos or read the entire text. You should also be prepared to provide answers for the end of the unit assessment. After the completion of the course, you will also be ready to take the certification questions, and once you passed, you will have the ability to download your certificate and showcase this qualification on your CV and LinkedIn profile. Recall that “a certification is a great way to make your CV shine. It shows you’ve got genuine digital skills, and that you are motivated to learn: two essential qualities in today’s business world”.
On a last note, It will interest you to know that I completed this course in less than a week and I had since downloaded my certificate, updated my CV and added the badge in my LinkedIn profile. Looking towards seeing some of you guys with the Google Digital Garage Certificate of Online Proficiency.
