January 1, 2023 / By Roger Safont

Previously, we compiled thousands of online courses that provide free certificates and badges. The compilation proved hugely popular, receiving well over 1M views. You can find all the courses with free certificates here.

Class Central has 3500+ digital marketing courses, most with paid certificates. So we decided to search digital marketing courses with free certificates.

Digital marketing is a broad domain that includes topics like search engine optimization (SEO), content marketing, social media marketing, affiliate marketing, email marketing, public relations, and more.

We tracked down as many free certificate courses as we could — including courses from Google, Facebook, LinkedIn Learning, and Twitter — and we tested each learning platform, earning a few certificates along the way.

We’ll keep updating this list as new offerings appear. If you find more, please let us know in the comments!
