    Now an increasing number of universities and companies offer online certificates which you can earn through their exams or courses.

    These certificates are indeed useful in your resume. Even if you don't have a degree in that field, you can still prove your knowledge and skills.

    So here are some of the online certification exams I have found:

    Microsoft certification exams:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/exam-list.aspx

    Oracle certification exams:
    https://education.oracle.com/oracle-certification-exams-list

    Google certification exams:
    https://cloud.google.com/certification

    MongoDB certification exam:
    https://university.mongodb.com/certification

    Cisco certification exams:
    https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/training-events/training-certifications/exams.html#~stickynav=1

    Amazon Web Services certification exams:
    https://aws.amazon.com/certification/

    Each of these online certification exams barely costs between $100 - $250.
    They're from the real companies and they send you a certificate once you pass their exams.

    How about we create a new discussion section for these certification exams?
    If you're aware of any other useful and affordable online certification exams, let us know!

    Coursera and Edx are both great places to get course completion certificate from reputable universities:

    https://www.coursera.org

    https://www.edx.org/

    Most of their courses are free.. but you'll be charged $150+ when you want a course completion certificate with your name.

    Tableau certification exam for only $50:

    https://www.tableau.com/learn/certification/desktop-specialist
    https://www.tableau.com/learn/certification

    Here are key points when taking these exams:

    1. Take the exams offered by the original / real companies. i.e. Oracle, Microsoft, Tableau, etc. There are lots of unknown organizations claiming to issue certification exams.
    2. You may want to get certificates that won't expire first. Renewing these certificates every two years can cost a lot of money and time.
