Course Description

Why learn Python? Python is a general-purpose language that can be used for web development, data analysis, artificial intelligence, and scientific computing. It’s flexible, scalable, and easy to understand. Rapid job growth and high salaries for Python developers makes it an attractive skill if you have the aptitude to learn this programming language. 

This course covers all the basics of programming in Python as well as general computer programming concepts and techniques. The course also familiarizes you with the object-oriented approach. You will have access to hands-on practice materials, quizzes, and assessments to learn how to utilize the skills and knowledge gained on the course and interact with real-life programming tasks and situations.

At the end of this hands-on course, you should be familiar with general computer programming concepts like conditional execution, loops, Python programming language syntax, semantics, and the runtime environment, as well as with general coding techniques and object-oriented programming. 

Programming Essentials in Python helps prepare you for the Python Certified Associate Programmer certification exam (PCAP). PCAP is a professional certification that measures your ability to accomplish coding tasks related to the basics of programming in the Python language and the fundamental notions and techniques used in object-oriented programming.

A Statement of Achievement will be issued to participants who successfully demonstrate competencies at the completion of the course. This qualifies you for a 51% discount off the PCAP certification taken through Pearson VUE computer-based testing.  

Prerequisites

Ability to use a personal computer and understanding of basic mathematics. A bit of programming is helpful but not required or expected.
