Seventy-five percent of those earning a Career Certificate receive a benefit such as a new job or higher pay within six months, Google says.

Google will provide any U.S. business over $100,000 worth of online courses in data analytics, design, and other tech skills for their workers free of charge, the company said Monday (May 2).

The offer marks a big expansion of Google's Career Certificates, a program the company launched in 2018.

Over 70,000 people in the United States and 205,000 globally have earned at least one certificate, Google says.

The courses, designed by Google and sold through online education service Coursera Inc., each typically cost students about $39 a month. Google will cover costs for up to 500 workers at any U.S. business. It valued the grants at $100,000 because people usually take up to six months to finish.
