Google wants to help you become a power searcher. Today the company has unveiled a new, free online course called Power Searching with Google that aims to teach users some tricks and best practices for using the search engine more effectively. Due to kick off on July 10th, the two-week program includes six 50-minute-long classes that will be released daily, and also features a community element, as you'll get to interact with other students through services like Google+ and Google Groups. You'll be able to ask "world-renowned search experts" questions, and once complete you'll receive "a printable Certificate of Completion." While class isn't in session until next month, you can register now to reserve a virtual seat.
