Yes. Once you complete certification, it will be available in acclaim. You can share it in LinkedIn through acclaim.
All the fundamental -900 level certifications are free after attending a free Microsoft Virtual Training day [microsoft.com] (you can get as many as you want):

AZ-900 - Azure Fundamentals
DP-900 - Azure Data Fundamentals
AI-900 - Azure AI Fundamentals
MS-900 - Microsoft 365 Fundamentals
MB-900 - Dynamics 365 Fundamentals
PL-900 - Power Platform Fundamentals

There's also a one-time $15 COVID-related price on certain exams, so don't waste it on one of these free ones.

EDIT: MS-900 has some related virtual training days but none that grants a free cert/exam for M365 Fundamentals
Cloud technology is becoming more prevalent, it's a measuring stick for perspective employers. If you enjoy getting 2-3% raises a year, having difficulty finding new positions, and stagnation of your skills/career you should continue to view education as useless.

Serious question...can anyone recommend a course for an imbecile such as myself? Or are these too advanced to be taken so quickly? Not looking for shortcut, per se, just don't want to bite into something that's going to leave me confused and thinking, "....what are you saying?"

Thanks.

MCSE = Many Clicks Solve Everything

MCSE = Must Consult Someone Experienced

As a bona fide old school MCSE, it's ok for me to say these things.laugh out loud


All jokes aside, nice deal. Repped and thumbs up! nod
