  • None of the certifications are worth it quite frankly, if you’re going to go into the IT field and into relational databases or programming, then skip the certifications and self-educate yourself. Learn from sites like Udemy, freecodecamp, YouTube, read books. Udemy and YouTube are already huge resources of IT information. You can pick up whatever skill you want. Courses in Udemy can teach you what softwares you need to install, and help you learn code and SQL. Once you learn enough from the courses, you can proceed to make projects, and once you’re done, put them in a portfolio.

  • In most cases the certificates are not worth it skill-wise, but they definitely look good when looking for a new job. Azure is a very difficult topic to get a certificate from, so it might not be the first choice.

    Definitely not worth the time if you're just looking to learn something new, there are so many free alternatives for that.

  • I agree, they are not worth it unless you are applying for a Job.

  • As previous posters say, the certificate will only benefit you for very specific Jobs.
