2. Get started on Pluralsight: Access custom channels for your role

While you have access to dozens of Pluralsight courses, we wanted to set you up for success by organizing the courses into one or more channels. You have access to even more courses than these channels contain, so use these as a starting point to explore your benefit.

Plus, for each benefit you can take a Skill IQ assessment to rate your skills, both before you start learning, and after you complete courses.

Learn: Android developer

For our Android developer role, we created a channel for you to begin your journey that you can join here.

This channel will give you a quick overview of programming, Git, Android development, user experience, and security.

Assess your skills:

Take the Google Android associate developer Skill IQ.

Learn: Cloud architect / Security

Our cloud architect role is concentrated around security. To start learning the security topics as it relates to cloud infrastructure, please click and join this channel.

This will provide you a guide to get started, or to continue your learning around, cloud infrastructure.

Did you know?

This coursework is an excellent way to prepare for the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification.

Learn: Data engineering

Our data engineering role has 4 channels that introduce you to different specialty areas within data engineering: 

All of our channels for each speciality area start with a free course, What is Programming?, an excellent introduction to programming and technology. 

Then, most of the channels dive into our Business Analysis path, then progressing to courses around the speciality.

Assess your skills

Take the Python Skill IQ and measure your learning.

Learn: Mobile web specialist

We created a mobile web specialist channel for you to begin your journey that you can join here. This channel will start you with a free course, What is Programming?, that's excellent for beginners and experienced programmers alike.

Then, we move into an overview of user experience design, training around Git, and then a primary development language, JavaScript.

Take these Skill IQ assessments:

Note: If you do not have access to the Google Reskilling India Program, you can still click the Channel links above to view the courses when you log in. However, your view access may be limited to just the course overview, instead of the full course.

3. Discover more ways you can learn on Pluralsight

Learn using courses and paths

Pluralsight has several ways to organize the courses you’re working on.

A course can be part of a path , which is a collection of courses the Pluralsight curriculum has organized from just starting a technology or skill, to advanced use. There’s a Skill IQ assessment at the end of many paths. You can see a full list of all paths here. When you log into your Pluralsight account as a Google India developer redeemer, you’ll see paths at the top of your homepage. Still, you have even more courses available to you than just the courses in these paths! 

 Channels  are another way to organize courses. Anyone can create a channel on Pluralsight -- click here for more information on creating your own channel. Just for Google India developers, we’ve created one start-to-finish channel each for all the roles except Data engineering (which has four). See section 2 above, Getting started on Pluralsight, to find links to your specific channel. 

Again, each channel has many courses, but you’ll find your full course selection on Pluralsight. In the left pane navigation, you can always click the top Home icon to return to your Google India benefit homepage.

To continue your learning on Pluralsight, you can upgrade to a paid individual subscription. To gain access to interactive courses, projects, and Kaplan certification practice exams, please check out the individual Premium subscription on our pricing page.

Notes, captions, and more tools to help you learn on Pluralsight

how to use the video player on Pluralsight
