"This collaboration with Google Cloud will ultimately provide a range of resources that will enable professionals to gain the knowledge they need and demonstrate the skills necessary to succeed as a Google Cloud professional."

Hoboken, N.J. – April 5, 2019 – John Wiley and Sons, Inc. (NYSE:JWA)(NYSE:JWB) today announced a new collaboration with Google Cloud aimed at providing a range of resources to support learners in the fast-growing market for Google’s Cloud certifications. The first title to be published as part of these resources is the Official Google Cloud Certified Associate Cloud Engineer Study Guide, to be published by Sybex, a Wiley imprint.

Billions of users and millions of companies rely on Google Cloud technology, and Google’s cloud-based services are growing at an exponential rate. However, 94% of IT managers say it’s at least somewhat difficult to find candidates with the right technology skills to fill their enterprise needs. To fulfill this growing need for talent, Google Cloud has expanded its role-based certifications to help businesses identify talent and prepare millions of workers to be successful working in the cloud. As part of its collaboration with Google Cloud, Wiley will publish Google Cloud Certified study guides to help IT professionals prepare for certification exams.

“Wiley is deeply committed to providing technology professionals with a range of certifications that empower them to enhance their careers and increase their personal effectiveness,” said Ella Balagula, executive vice president of knowledge & learning, Wiley. “This collaboration with Google Cloud will ultimately provide a range of resources that will enable professionals to gain the knowledge they need and demonstrate the skills necessary to succeed as a Google Cloud professional.”

Written by Dan Sullivan, a popular and experienced online course author for machine learning, big data, and cloud topics, the Official Google Cloud Certified Associate Cloud Engineer Study Guide provides learners a clear pathway for reviewing and testing their knowledge, preparing them for the certification exam. The study guide comprehensively covers the topics required for success on the exam and in their career as a Certified Associate Cloud Engineer. Following Wiley’s successful approach to preparing learners for high-stakes certification, the study guide also includes review questions and online practice tests. The Official Google Cloud Certified Associate Cloud Engineer Study Guide will be available on April 16th.
