Some public feedback about "Google Workspace (G Suite) Admin - The Complete Course":
"Long story short - this course helped me a lot in passing my Professional Workspace admin exam. Saleh, Thank you for this amazing course.
Now some more details about this course - There is a reason ( and this reason is a good one), that Salehs youtube channel is called "The cloud nerd". The key word is "nerd". Because of my technical background, this course gave me so much info and understanding of GWS. I totally understand for non tech people this course may be a little toooo booooring, because the videos often are not just a brief explanation, but a deep dive, so you not just know, where and what to click, but to realise, how and why this things work.
Section 18: Migrate to Google Workspace - this section is just enough to buy this course and have it as a handbook and guide. I spent so much time googling for migration guides and you have it all here and so so so well explained.
This course IS a 5 star course" - Mike P.
"A very good match! I've worked with pieces of google before - but wanted a comprehensive course to tie it together. This course is exactly that! I especially like that various ways of doing a task are provided." - Susan C.

Here is a little about Saleh Ramadan...
With more than 10 years of technical experience, Saleh has a lot of knowledge in infrastructure systems. Saleh's experience can be witnessed through his wide range of industry certifications, such as 2 MCSE certifications from Microsoft (MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure, MCSE: Productivity) and other high valued industry certifications (CCNA, Google Certified Administrator, Google Deployment Services Specialist), as well as business oriented certification (ITIL Foundation) and a full PMP training.
Started in 2006 as an IT technician, it was his first time to touch a server and be in a real datacenter and work with servers. He loved networks more, and was on his way to become a CCNA but did not complete the study due to change of jobs. He joined a Microsoft partner and started doing all kinds of Microsoft products implementations such as Windows Server 2003, 2008/R2 with its various roles and configurations, MS SQL Server, MS Dynamics CRM, ForeFront products, and MS Exchange Server 2003/2007/2010! He totally loves the Microsoft Exchange Server products!
Then he joined a newly founded company at that time and took the roles of the IT administrator, then got promoted to the assistant manager for IT and ERP. Int his time he designed and built the whole IT department. Put the rules and policies for the department. Also write the operations manual and built the forms and workflows that his IT colleagues had to follow for their process. He also introduced a help desk system to make problem reporting/resolution much more efficient!
During his time as assistant manager, he worked with third-party consultants to implement Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 in his organization, he played a key role in this implementation being the middle man between the end users and the consultants to transfer and deliver the requirements between each side. This unique experience gave him a very deep and great understanding of the whole business process how to to effectively make a good business process and system.
He got a chance in late 2013 to join a newly founded Google reseller as well and he took that chance. The main job is a Google engineer. But this role put him in challenges that forced him to bring out all the experience that he accumulated during all of his past career. It has been now more than 4 years. He is the senior technical consultant for his company and provides a lot of guidance and support to his colleagues and customers!
Saleh likes challenges and creativity. He loves reading, swimming, cycling and blogging.
