Submission + - Prove your IT knowledge without expensive certificates?

An anonymous reader writes: I'm starting my phd in psychology this year and plan to finance this period with IT freelance work, mostly building websites with drupal and setting up linux networks, servers etc.. Now I have a little problem: Since I never studied ICT nor followed a course that resulted in a certificate I can only prove my knowledge by actually doing stuff or showing what I've done so far. Unfortunately that isn't always sufficient to convince potential customers. So I was wondering what other slashdotters do, are there any free or cheap alternatives to get certificates or other more convincing ways to prove your IT knowledge?

Thanks for any help in advance!
