Why study this course

Python® continues to be a popular programming language, perhaps owing to its easy learning curve, small code footprint, and versatility for business, web, and scientific uses. Python is useful for developing custom software tools, applications, web services, and cloud applications.

In this course, you'll build upon your basic Python skills, learning more advanced topics such as object-oriented programming patterns, development of graphical user interfaces, data management, creating web service-connected apps, performing data science tasks, unit testing, and creating and installing packages and executable applications.

This course helps to prepare you for the Python Institute's Certified Associate in Python Programming (Exam PCAP-31-0x) and Certified Professional in Python Programming 1 (Exam PCPP-32-10x). The course content is 50% aligned to the PCAP™ exam and 61% aligned to the PCPP1™ exam. If you are pursuing certification you may wish to consider the Certified Associate in Python Programming (PCAP) course which fully aligns to the PCAP exam, with the Certified Professional in Python Programming - Level 1 (PCPP1) due for release later in 2024.

Please note: The exam is not included in the course fee but can be purchased separately. Please contact us for a quote.
