Is paying for an online python course for the certificate worth it? Do employers care about the certificate or can I just tech myself python and put that I know python on my resume?

Read this, it's a beginner's guide on programming from /g/'s beginner's programming threads. Gives you just about everything you need to start learning. Best advice I can give is to just read some books and actually code to enhance your skill. It talks about courses to take as well and some book recommendations.

Just do some ML projects and post them to your clithub. Cert for python just shows you're at least pajeet tier.
>>
The only "certificate" that matters is a CS diploma. Other than that, your resume should be your github account. If you have projects that use Python, then you know Python.
>>
Programming certificates only shows you are an idiot. A portafolio of projects is what employers are looking for.
Certificates are only useful if you are SysAdmin, DevOps, Network Architect, etc.

I'm working for a fortune 50 and haven't paid a cent to further my knowledge on software. You want to have a wide but impressive tree of skills relevant to job you're applying, have several cvs is the way to do it. Like if you're applying for a tester job write about nunit or some testing framework. Or frontend and some js library.

Maybe in the states but been interviewed and offered a dozen or so jobs over the last year or two without any of that shit. You just want a good cv. Dated a recruiter they just use bots to filter irrelevant cvs that don't contain buzzwords.

is a bachelors in IT and CCNA enough to compete for a technical job in 2021?
how long do you think it would take to get a job with just these two?

Why would you care what employers thing?

>Certificates are only useful if you are SysAdmin, DevOps
Certs don't mean shit for SysAdmin and "DevOps" is just a memeword for SysAdmins who don't want to be associated with the IT guy who helps the boss when he can't remember how to open his email.

Certs only carry you for vendor related skills (like Cisco). You're skills as a developer will show how good you actually are. Don't chase worthless certs just to make your resume longer.
