It is okay if they mention FREE in the certificate… Any how we are getting just overview of the course…

If someone is studying a paid one course, then what will be the value of that certificate… It will be same as FREE… That is why… To add FREE is absolutely fine

I completed this course but when I received the certificate it is mentioned “For completing a free online course”.

why would you mention free on the certificate ? When you mention free it means it has no value. It’s of no use to share it on linkedIn (even after putting effort to learn). It’s not right to mention that word. No thanks
