Any free courses on DS, ML, AI which give certificate also?


I want to do free courses in data science, machine learning, AI but I don’t want to do it without certificate. Everywhere I am checking they ask for money for the certificate. Allison courses are good the certificate requires payment. All the good courses in Coursera and edX for these topics don’t give certificate.

I recently found some free courses from Great Learning and Upgrad. Does anyone know if they actually give the certificate of completion. I want to do the Neural Networks course but it is 15 hours long on Great Learning Academy. Don’t want to waste my time if afterwards certificate requires payment. Anyone knows?

This is the free course I want to do:

Hello.I believe not all certifications have the same value. If you have much free time, you can register to for one month and do as more courses as you can. It costs about 30$ and you can do unlimited courses. I use it last year and i am very satisfied about their teaching methods.

@barbara , I should tell you that certificates have almost nil value nowadays. You can see on LinkedIn so many people displaying their certificates after completing the course. What does this tell a recruiter? That we have merely managed to sit through the video lectures. Does this make us stand out?
What would be more effective is to actually use what you learnt to make something which demonstrates your grasp of the concepts.
