Discussion on: Are Online Certificates Worth It?

I agree with the comments made already but I would caveat that you should be wary of high version turn over and non-backwards compatible releasing. What am I getting at...
Java certified in general, cool to the point Ben made... that certification you got in Java 5 when new versions roll out every 6 months may be seen as useless by some interviewers.
React certified? (Not sure if it's a thing) cool, they're pretty good about not releasing breaking versions. Angular 1 certified isn't going to help you if the job market is looking for Angular 2 or 4 or whatever version they're on now.
Not a solid "no" on any cert, just be mindful of it's longer term value given what cost you have to put in to it.
