[2022] 800+ Hours of Free LinkedIn Learning Courses with Free Certification

After the pandemic hit more than two years ago, Microsoft made 14 learning paths on LinkedIn Learning available for free. At the time, we shared the list of learning paths with free certificates with Class Central’s learners, as well as a collection of free pandemic educational resources, which was viewed by close to 1M learners.

Since then, I’ve been keeping an eye on LinkedIn Learning, regularly checking if there were more free LinkedIn Learning certificates available. I searched through LinkedIn Learning’s catalog of close to 10,000 courses and 675 learning paths and identified the courses available for free and that offer free certificates.

Here’s what I found:

185 courses and 13 learning paths offer free LinkedIn certificates, as well has 320 free courses, for a total of 800+ hours of free online learning. 

You can find the comprehensive lists below. Click on a link to jump to the corresponding section.

We’re not sure how long these courses will offer free certificates. However, we plan to keep an eye on LinkedIn Learning and update the list continuously. In fact, the list initially had 350 hours of free resources. Now, it’s 800 hours. So, stay tuned! And if you find more free certificates or courses, or if you notice an error in the list, please tell us in the comments.

How to earn a LinkedIn Learning Free Certification

Linkedin Learning Certificate Popup

To earn a certificate for an individual course, watch all videos and take the quizzes. In courses, you’ll need to take an exam. Once you’re done, go to the “Related to this course” section below the video (on desktop) and click on “Show all”.

A window will pop up with certificates available for the course (see example above). Click on “Download” to get your LinkedIn Learning certificate. Some courses also offer Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits, in addition to the LinkedIn Learning certificate.

To earn a certificate for a learning path, you need to complete all the path’s courses. Then, you’ll be able to download the learning path certificate.

We noticed that some LinkedIn Learning courses were rather short (less than 20 minutes of content), so we moved them to their own section below and called them “mini-courses”.
