I came across a couple of resources but one that struck me was uCertify. I went through their course on "Implementing a Data Warehouse with SQL Server". What did I find out?
They have a pretest you can take before you commence the lessons. If you feel like jumping in straight to the lessons, you still can. And you can always come back for that same test.
The content is excellently packed with everything one can think of. And they also provide links to other materials.
Their explanations are so on point. They used simple English all through, no use of any ambiguous words.
They also have a practice test to actually test your knowledge after the course and prepare you for the actual exams.
You can obtain a certificate of completion.
There are other Certifications as well. You should see for yourself on uCertify
