4. Industry-Recognized Certifications.

There is a lot of debate about whether or not certifications issued by online course providers are worth the paper they are written on.

Edureka provides certification courses, master courses, webinars, and community platforms. It stands out by offering live classes, flexible schedules.

Edureka is also well known for its Advanced Executive Certification Programs for students and working professionals. 

Let’s take a look at some pros and cons specific to Edureka.

Pros Cons
Edureka is a legitimate online education provider certified by PMI as an Authorized Training Partner (ATP). (PMI certifications are credentials administered by the professional organization Project Management Institute. Eduerka also has partnerships with Universities.They are not accredited by “independent groups” such as ICSOC. (International Council of Specialized Online Certifications.
PMI certifications are recognized around the world and qualify recipients to work in many industries.. They usually don’t carry the same value as a University degree or certification.
Many of Edureka’s programmes are focused on delivering the specific skills and knowledge required to pass key industry exams, such as the Microsoft Azure AZ-305 exam, the Scrum Master certification, or Robotic Process Automation training using UiPath will prepare you for UiPath’s RPA Certification exam.The value of any online certification can be dependent on how well the new graduate performs his job.
Edureka is one of the few that will provide real-world practical projects.  Each Edureka program is supported with several hands-on project scenarios. Case studies and workshops are continually updated to ensure they remain currentThere is discrimination among employers based on the learning institutions location.
For courses such as Python Programming, Edureka issues it own certificate of completion.
Microsoft Azure Certification Training


If you haven’t guessed yet, Edureka is based in India, and for those who don’t know, India’s learning institutions have a foundation based on the British educational system. All of its courses are in English.

As well many of its courses are co-branded with other organizations, Future Skills Prime and NASSCOM for example, as well as Universities and corporate entities.

These days, tech firms are generally more interested in whether or not the graduate can do the job rather than having a certificate of competence.

That said however, having a certificate is better than not having one!

Short answer is NO.

However companies can submit any open tech positions they may have, and Edureka will put those in front of students who have completed the relevant course(s).

So if your a business looking for staff in any of the following categories, Edureka would like to hear from you.

Edureka will put your positions in front of the applicable cohort and then it is up to the student to put their best foot forward.

To help the students do this Edureka has a series of “coaching” interview lessons.

This is not unique to Edureka though many colleges put a lot of effort into this area, because just waving goodbye after the student completes their course is not going to do much for their reputation.

So , the longer answer is No they don’t guarantee you a job but will give you all the assistance they can to help you land one.

It is 2 way street though, you first have to complete the course.

What is the Value Proposition of Edureka?

The biggest competitor to any online college is Udemy, for the simple reason of Udemy’s pricing.

A Udemy course provider has none of the overheads of a college, wages for instructors, support staff, insurance, or brick and mortar premises etc.

If we look at Udemy’s best selling AWS Solution Architect Training, and Edureka’s AWS Solution Architect Training the price difference is eyewatering, until you dig further into the respective courses.

Udemy’s top rated course is $35.00. and rated at 4.7/5

Edureka’s is $450 and rated at 4.52/5 (average from 4 rating sites)

On Udemy it is suggested you need basic IT knowledge to undertake that particular course.

Edureka makes this suggestion as a prerequisite: “If you are new in the tech field from a non-It background, then it’s recommended to start with Cloud Practitioner AWS Certification that validates foundational knowledge of AWS terminology.”

Successful completion of these courses puts you in the mix for a $130,000+ p/yr position.

So the question becomes, which course will give you the most thorough training (if IT skills are lacking), where you will get instructor-led training, real life case studies, assignments and support, ensuring your skills are up to the task to succeed and begin earning $130,000+?

I will leave you to answer that!
