Expired Free Courses

Since I’m updating this regularly, I’ve decided to move inactive or expired deals into a dedicated section it’s own page. I also figure that over time it will grow pretty big, so I’ve decided to have it folded away by default move expired courses to the expired page. Click the button the expand the list of expired deals.

Sources, Links, Changelog and Other Resources

I was inspired by and sourced some of these links from this Reddit post (I didn’t include any of the expired offers such as Juniper Networks and Palo Alto Networks) as well as reading questions asking about free courses and certificates on Quara. Since that Reddit post will eventually get locked, and I wanted a specific up-to-date resource to point others to, I’ve decided to make a permanent resource that gets updated regularly so that we can keep track of all the free professional certificates and free online courses.

  • May 8th, 2020 Update: Nothing new to add today, but I added this changelog.
  • May 10th, 2020 Update: Moved the Oracle tests out of the expired category because they’ve added more testing slots.
  • May 11th, 2020 Update: I was made aware that FutureLearn has some free courses with free certificates so I added those links to the top of the free courses section.
  • May 12th, 2020 Update: vfzxc01 left a comment pointing out Harvard University’s free courses, which I added to the free courses section. Thanks again vfzxc01!

  • May 16th, 2020 Update: This page was barely usable on mobile, so I’ve changed the page so that mobile users get tables with only 2 columns: the certificate/course name and link in one column and a description in the other. This retains the most important information and looks good on phones.
  • May 17th, 2020 Update: Added GCF Global to the bottom of the free courses section since it seems to be on-topic.
  • May 19th, 2020 Update: Thanks to k230 for commenting regarding the free certs from PMI which I added to the bottom of the “Other Certificates” table. Thanks to maz for pointing out the ICSI free course, which I added to the bottom of the free course list.

https://online-learning.harvard.edu/subject/education-teaching

Im from /r/syadmin and i come here now regularly to look at updates while im at quarantine

One more i’d like to add! on my quest to better my resume I found and took some managing related courses from Six sigma,Which is a set of techniques and tools for process improvement. From where I am it is a requirement for most of the engineering managers

You can take two courses for free and get a free certification which are
Lean Six Sigma White Belt Certified (LSSWB)™
and
Project Management Essentials Certified (PMEC)

I’m a Computer engineering student I wont have any use for this but since it is free and might look good on my resume I’ve decided to take it who knows someday I might become a manager of my own I.T department.

Also it is said on the website that the e-certificate they offer data will not be stored on their DB unless you purchase a physical copy of the certificate. Meaning you wont be able to verify the validity of the cert you took unless you paid for it, managers can say that your cert is legit, so what i did what i took screen shots of my exam results and a copy of the recite they’ve sent me in my email for future reference.

Are the AWS coursera free because of the Audit version of them? You don’t get certificates on audit versions, right?

Himurashi

I think I did something wrong here.

AWS Coursera.JPG
Himurashi

Thank you for giving me the link https://www.coursera.org/promo/cloud-technology-free-courses.
 
From that link, the AWS course comes out with the 100% discount.
 
Pretty sneaky from Coursera, I think? LOL.

Bogdan-Adrian Burciu

Hi. Thank you for what you’re doing, some great resources are available here.
I’ve checked the RedHat free courses (the 8, one eg. https://www.redhat.com/en/services/training/cl010-red-hat-openstack-technical-overview) and there’s no certification for course completion available. It is mentioned on their page: “Note: You can view all videos or only the ones that interest you. There are no hands-on labs or course completion recognition associated with this course.“.

Keep well,
Bogdan
