Introduction to Python On-Demand Course FAQs

Attendees should have familiarity with concepts, such as variables, loops, and branches, with some experience using a text editor to edit program code.

Python developers write the code necessary to develop applications using Python's built-in statements, functions, and collection types. Python is also a very popular language for data analytics.

There are many pathways to becoming a Python programmer, but the skills required typically include a firm understanding of object-oriented programming and experience in developing applications with Python.

Yes, this course, combined with some personal reading on recursion and Python’s exception hierarchy, will help you prepare for the PCEP exam.

The Certified Entry-Level Python Programmer (PCEP) certification is a certification program designed to demonstrate an individual's competency in basic Python programming concepts. The certification is intended for entry-level programmers who have a fundamental understanding of Python and want to document their knowledge and skills in the language.

Yes! By obtaining the PCEP  certification, individuals can demonstrate their knowledge of Python and ability to write clean, efficient, and effective code. This can help them stand out from other candidates when applying for entry-level programming jobs and can also help them advance their careers by showing employers that they have an understanding of the Python programming language basics.

This course prepares you quite well (roughly 90%) for the PCEP exam but not sufficiently for the PCAP.  Passing the PCAP exam requires Python fluency in many advanced techniques and concepts, some achievable only through personal research, practice, and coding experience.

Yes. The on-demand content was developed by the same author as the Instructor-led course and has the same course objectives, hands-on exercises and lab demonstrations.

Yes. The same hands-on exercise labs and instructions used in the instructor-led course are available throughout the 1 calendar year term of the on-demand course.
