Search engine giant Google on Monday launched Grow with Google OnAir that will help impart free digital skills training to everyone in the US and Canada for the first time.

The in-person ‘Grow with Google’ was launched in 2017 to help Americans get the digital skills they need to succeed.


To date, the Grow with Google programme has trained more than 4 million Americans on digital skills.

“Though we’re no longer able to gather in person, that doesn’t mean the learning has to stop. So we’re announcing virtual programmes from Grow with Google that can help,” Jesse Haines, Director, Grow with Google said in a statement.
