security tube certification thoughts?

I saw they have a python and a metasploit certification on their site, was wondering if these are just bs online certs or if they have any worth at all?

    From what I've seen, the training provided in pursuit of the certifications is absolutely worth the money if you are a goal oriented person that can learn well with labs and videos. As a standalone certification, I imagine it wouldn't be recognized. However, there is serious worth, especially now, in putting down that you know Python on a resume.
    Certifications: A+, Net+, Sec+, Project+, Linux+/LPIC-1/SUSE CLA, C|EH, eWPT, GMON, GWAPT, GCIH, eCPPT, GPEN, GXPN, OSCP, CISSP.
    WGU, BS-IT, Security: C178, C255, C100, C132, C164, C173, C172, C480, C455, ORA1, C182, C168, C394, C393, C451, C698, C697, C176, C456, C483, C170, C175, C169, C299, C246, C247, C376, C179, C278, C459, C463, C435, C436.

    Okay good to know, I'm in the process of teaching myself Python using 2 courses on Udemy and some video courses on Lynda.com and two books. I think I am definitely going to do the course on there. $250 isn't a bad price either and like you said just putting down you know Python and have a certification in it alone will be a good thing whether or not it is a known certification

    Check out the Python class on Udacity too. It's pretty good. You can do it free, even though selling "Nanodegrees" is their business.

    Their Java class, eh... not as good.
