    Default Free or reduced certs 2017?

    There's a sticky for free certs for a few years back but nothing for 2017.

    If you know of any free or reduced price certs active now then please post!

    I'll kick off with Palo alto accredited configuration engineer. Free and tested online:

    Microsoft are currently transitioning from 2-yearly recertification to yearly "re-earning" of certifications, which is resulting in some surprising buy-one-get-one-free situations.

    For example, a person who already has MCSA (SQL Server 2012/14) can upgrade to MCSA (SQL Server 2016) by passing a single exam (70-762), and get a "free" MCSE (Data Management and Analytics) at the same time.

    I have used them as well. They are very customer oriented. I bought two vouchers with about fifteen days of use left on them, which meant a really nice discount. They called me within minutes of placing the order so that they could verify that I knew that the vouchers were expiring soon. Since I didn't recognize the number, I let it go to voicemail. They left a message and sent an email. When I responded to the email, they added an additional fifteen days onto the vouchers at no additional cost. Now, I always start at their website when I need to purchase a voucher.
