Become a Google Cloud Platform expert with hands-on training.
We give you temporary credentials to Google Cloud Platform, so you can learn the cloud using the real thing – no simulations. From 30-minute individual labs to multi-day courses, from introductory level to expert, instructor-led or self-paced, with topics like machine learning, security, infrastructure, app dev, and more, we've got you covered.
