You can consider online classes from Coursera for self-study. Coursera provides online classes (most of them are free) offered by university professors, typically attended worldwide by thousands of students and working professionals. In particular, consider the Data Science Specialization from John Hopkins University, which offers a guaranteed certificate demonstrating your ability.
