About the course:
This course builds on our entry level Python course to prepare students for the associate-level PCAP certification.
During four days of interactive study, students will extend their knowledge to more advanced aspects of Python programming, including the essentials of object oriented programming (OOP), the organistion of larger software projects into modules and packages and the exception handling mechanism in OOP.
Along the way students will broaden their knowledge of fundamental computing concepts including character encoding standards and filestream input/output as well as extending their toolkit with more advanced operations on strings, and Python’s implementation of concepts such as list comprehensions, lambdas, generators and closures.
Completing this course will prepare students for the PCAP™ certification, providing a tangible goal and enabling them to validate the Python skills they have learned. This qualification verifies that its holder has mastered the basic toolkit that Python provides, and is ready to apply these tools in a professional setting or to continue their studies to an advanced level or in more specialised areas.
Sign up to this course to take your Python skills to the next level and gain a valuable credential to further advance your programming career.
For more information about how to take the exam, see the Python Institute website for details on how to register.
