Google Cybersecurity Certificate

Has anyone done this course? Is it worth doing for new comers to cyber security? Looks like it’s $59 a month, they advertise the faster you do it the cheaper it is…

Hi, I’m in the process of doing it and yes it’s worth doing it. It correlates to the CompTIA Security Plus although Security Plus is more in-depth. It’s a good beginner-friendly course as it helps to establish a foundation in cybersecurity/infosec.
As for the price, yes if you finish faster it’s cheaper but what I found is if you use the financial Aid option located to the right in the large banner, you will get the modules either free or reduced cost, no matter where you’re from.
Hope this helps!

Good to hear as I am also a beginner and I was struggling to decide what courses to do. Great, I did apply for financial aid so I’ll see what happens.

Awesome! You could even use it as reinforcement for even Security Plus which is a more favorable certificate in terms of what hiring managers are looking for.

i completed Google Cybersecurity and Comptia Security+. Google is not very reconozible by HR departament but from the knowledge point of view i think it worth it. Comptia cover more topics but Google gives practical experience about some topics. i completed in 2 months. it can be done way faster than that.
