Firm is reimbursing 2k for certs - any recommendations from the list? Currently doing RPA/Alteryx/Power BI and want to pivot towards DS/AI/ML with a splash of data management and RPA. Have prior coding exp in R/SQL/Python. TIA

Haven't heard about the data management and modeling ones, but given your interest, you should focus on the DA-100, DP-100 and supplement with AZ-900 if you want a broader understanding of Azure. I believe the AZ-900 can be skipped. The MSCE and MSCA are deprecated at the end of January and the rest are unnecessary, unless you will need to learn data engineering too.

Which firm? And is it 2k per cert or in total?

GT. Up to 2k for one cert

Msft only? 🤢

Nope there are other certs, these are just what I picked that focused on DS / data mgmt. Are there any non MSFT DS certs not on this list you recommend?
