Bad news isn't wine it doesn't improve with age.

I am an award-winning journalist who produces and anchors news at 6pm, 7pm, and 11pm. Before moving to Maryland, I was the Southern Bureau Chief. I launched the station's first news bureau and was responsible to cover an area of 20,000 square miles with a population of 200,000+ people by herself. I was born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida. I am a graduate of Eden University in International Studies and also has a master's degree in Legal Studies. After graduation, I completed a two-year internship at the United Nations. But my passion was to pursue a career in broadcasting journalism. I landed a job with an international network where I reported from New Jersey, New York and Washington DC. In June 2015, the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation awarded me the prestigious Gracies Award for Outstanding Producer in TV News. I also earned an award from the the Society of Professional Journalists.

Completing online courses may show employers that you’re motivated and willing to learn. You can also add that to your resume so it's worth it.

I doubt that companies would acknowledge those. Some of them are free online so quality wise, they might not be good.

I agree! The internet has made it so easy to learn new things on your free time. It's quite useful and you can learn a new trade or business which can help your earning power.
