Why are there so many Machine Learning paid certifications?

I often wonder when I see people completing certificates on ML, are these more for showing the world that you know and understand ML or is it really a sense of achieving something! If it is the latter then why pay ? and why need a certificate at all?

Let me elaborate on the resources that are free and can do a better job than most paid ML courses:
  • GitHub Awesome Machine Learning - https://github.com/josephmisiti/awesome-machine-learning
    • For a list of free machine learning books available for download, go here.
    • For a list of (mostly) free machine learning courses available online, go here.
    • For a list of blogs on data science and machine learning, go here.
    • For a list of free-to-attend meetups and local events, go here.
  • Finally the mindmap! - https://github.com/dformoso/machine-learning-mindmap

And there are all the competitions on Kaggle that can boost your practical knowledge that no certificate can! I am sure there are many more , would love to hear from others what are the other resources that you have seen.
