PowerBI's cost to organizations is fairly close to zero. Tableau is more of a data viz tool rather than a fully baked BI solution. Tbh, it's not hard to get certs for both but your most valuable investment would be to be able to speak intelligently to both and to the larger BI landscape.

Long term, I think PBI has more upside than Tableau, though Tableau is currently ahead in the data viz space. Microsoft is heavily investing in PBI and Power Apps in general, which are included in corporate O365 subscriptions, so the potential user base is huge and there's a lot of potential for future functionality for PBI.
