These courses are free but the certificate is not. You can take the course, do the assignments, and tests, but if you want the certificate or diploma of completion, you’ll have to pay for that. The certificate or diploma can cost around $75 and up.
Although the certificate is not free, I still encourage you to check out these websites, I’m sure you’ll find something that meets your interest.
