Google Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai announced Thursday that the internet-search giant is signing on to presidential daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump’s pledge to train American workers.

At an event in Dallas, Pichai said Google planned to provide training for 250,000 workers over the next year and provide a $3.5 million education grant. The Alphabet Inc. unit will offer access to the Google IT Support Professional Certificate program, which is designed to help prepare individuals for entry-level tech jobs through an online course that can be completed within six months.
