We’re hoping to encourage employees to complete a course. We’ll require employees to provide proof of completion, however we do not want to require they pay $60 for a certificate. Do you get an email confirming your completion of course, even if you DO NOT pay for the certificate?
Thanks for your help!

I wanted to clarify that the list of free courses that learners can take and complete for free is available on the Coursera platform itself. You may visit this section of the catalog:
According to the results, they are around 1748. (I excluded guided projects that don't have assignments.)
As the Original Poster mentions they are looking for an "email of completion", I think this point should be highlighted here:
There is a difference between a course that you take and complete for free and a course that you can take, complete, AND get as a finished course in your Completed tab and Accomplishments page. In some courses, you would not get any signs of completion even after completing every item. They would remain in your In-progress tab because they don't have any assignments. For example, there is a writing course from Lund that falls into this category. (Class Central has put it on their list.) Yes, it's free, but you'll not get it as a finished course in your Completed tab and the Accomplishments page. There will be NO email of completion either. But it seems they include only a small portion of the total 1748 courses.
Hope this helps.
