Google Cloud Certified professionals are the highest paid in the industry; Google offers 7 of the 10 top-paying IT certifications globally1. We want to make it easier than ever for you to tap into that potential to earn more. 

That's why, this year at I/O, Google announced that every member of the Google Cloud Innovators community, our no-cost developer program, is now granted 35 unrestricted learning credits every month to use on courses and hands-on labs through Google Cloud Skills Boost.
