Why would there be risk - well any more risk than doing anything else?

Sure, use eg http://www.codecademy.com/<http://www.codecademy.com/#!/exercises/0>

for the content and course support and then get ASDAN to certify skills
from complete beginner level through to professional. There are some
constraints in terms of independent verification that the work is that of
the person claiming the certificate but all of this is just normal business
for a professional Awarding Organisation.
