    If money is no issue, GIAC Certifications hold weight, you still have to go to a testing center, but the SANS course for the certification can be taken on-demand, 100% online.

    You can take the Wireshark Certification exam, WCNA, online at your own house. Might not hold a ton of weight... but is good knowledge to have.

    I believe you can take the Microsoft MTA exams online at your own house as well, but you need to setup a camera and download software that monitors your computer while you do the exam I believe.

    VMware's VCA may hold some weight. The test is online & done from your home.
