Update on accessing Android Enterprise Academy

Back in September of 2018, I completed two training courses offered by Google on Android Enterprise while vacationing with my family (only after kids were asleep.) You can learn more via my previous blog post below:

Getting certified in Android Enterprise Associate / Professional with Google Academy

After hearing about the release of the new course on Zero-touch enrollment on LinkedIn, I could hardly contain my excitement!

For some reason, however, I was not able to access this particular training course. In fact, the course I could see under Android Enterprise Academy was Start Here: Welcome to the Academy!

After reviewing comments from others on the same LinkedIn post, I realize there has been a change where a valid company email is now required for verification purposes by taking a few simple steps shown below.

Fill in the Company and Company email and select a timezone. Then, click SAVE.

You will also need to click on the below before the confirmation email is sent to your company email.

After maybe a few hours later, you should receive the below at your company’s email. Click Verify to continue.

Once the verification process completes, you shall have access to the courses again!

I do wish Google will communicate such a change better in the future as I was totally clueless without the help of LinkedIn. That’s the power of the community!
