But I will get only a training certificate?

I do not want any paid internship?
If there are costs associated to training, you may need to pay, or you may need to get into bond etc, again, review the offerings, compare market rates, look at overall project prospect and get going..
It doesn’t sound like internship?

Cool.. 2 years down the line, you will be stuck with same technology and you will never have opportunities to upgrade skills , so enjoy the job, but realize, you are going to be obsolete within 2 years, then you will again be groping to join some courses, or may get more payment in same skills in other company and after 10 years, you face a risk of job loss, no growth, insecurity.. married and all that, you will run to high cost institutes, pay very good fee, desperately trying to look for jobs..
