List of Expired Free Courses (For Historical Purposes)

I’ve been maintaining a giant list of free certificates and free online courses. When the offer expires or the link goes bad, I was moving those courses to the bottom of the page. However, as the months went by the page grew massively and the list of expired courses just slowed the page down unnecessarily. I could’ve just deleted these altogether, but instead I decided to make a post dedicated to the courses I delete from the active list.

All courses and links on this page should be considered expired or invalid and here for historical purposes only.

Get a free voucher to take the AZ-900 Microsoft Azure Fundamentals certification exam when you attend the free Microsoft Virtual Training Days.

Free Oracle Cloud Certification

Update: This offer expired and has been moved to the expired deals archive.

I am adding this to the expired list because there are no open testing slots available between now and May 15, 2020, meaning this deal has effectively expired. Update: new testing slots available allowing you to take your exam after May 15, 2020 but you still need to reserve your exam slot before that date.
