Here they are, your top questions for Summer 2014. I'm excited to meet and work with everyone this summer. If you have any more questions please let us know. -Chris
The Administrator exam is taken in the Admin console of a live domain created for the exam. You’ll be given a series of problems to solve as a Super Admin using the Admin console. An application called the Examinator controls access to the exam problems and domain.
Students should have a familiarity with Google Apps: Gmail for Business, Google Drive, Docs, Spreadsheets, etc. Successful completion of APPS 100 Enterprise Training (Self-Study) is highly recommended.
Classes will be taught at Coolhead Tech's office downtown - 700 Lavaca. We are also considering a North Austin location based on student demand.
While the internship is not required, it is highly recommended for students who have no Google Apps Admin Panel experience. Google recommends that Certificate candidates have 6 months experience managing a domain of 50+ users. The Internship helps fufill this practical experience through Helpdesk management, client on-site experiences and Google Apps Migrations.
Google Apps Interns at Coolhead are involved in every stage of a client's migration to and adoption of Google Apps. Google Apps Migrations involves the process of moving a company's email, calendar and contacts from a legacy server to Gmail for business and Google Apps. After careful planning and setup, migrations generally begin on a Friday afternoon with "Go Live" on Monday morning.
Interns also manage day-to-day operations of Google Apps customers in Austin and Central Texas. Responsibilities include User amd Groups Management, Google Drive provisioning, business analysis of Google Apps usage, Spanning's Cloud-to-Cloud backup and security auditing with Cloudlock.
Side projects include helping organize the Second Annual Apps Admins Day ( October 9, 2014. ) Other student projects include designing and coding Google Business Apps for the Marketplace.
During the first 5 week session students are offered a weekly stipend for work as junior helpdesk engineers. As skills are proven you'll be offered opportunities in Google Apps migrations and projects such as Google Apps Scripting, spreadsheet building, etc. This client work generally pays between $10 and $20 per hour based on project demands.
The total cost of the program is $1098 and includes the Google Apps Certified Administrator Exam fee. All course materials are included. Students have access to all necessary resources including Google Apps Domains, Virtual Servers (Linux/Windows), Chromebooks, etc.
