Prerequisites: No pre-requisites or any prior coding experience required.

Learning Python has become one of the most useful skills in the workplace. Many professionals are now regularly using Python-powered applications to easily automate their workflows and make better decisions based on data analytics. There are millions and millions of already written Python lines of code that are ready and available for use. Python is easy to learn and can quickly become an asset for users.

In this workshop, you will have an opportunity to learn and become familiar with essential, and basic computer programming concepts like data types, containers, functions, conditions, loops, as well as Python programming language syntax, semantics, and the runtime environment.

With this knowledge you can create your own code as well as edit or modify existing code, the possibilities are literally endless with Python.

Using a structured step-by-step approach, each session will present learners with the knowledge and skills to guide them towards becoming Python programmers. This course is the first one in a series of three. It will provide you with the required foundation to continue your learning journey and grow your skills as a Python programmer.

Please Note:

An Exam is only required if you wish to obtain the PCEPTM -- Certified Entry Level Python Programmer certification, administered by the Python Institute. The exam is 45 minutes long and has 30 single and multiple choice questions, drag & drop, gap fill, sort, and code insertion |Python 3.x

This workshop will help participants to become prepared for the PCEPTM exam.

Note: All program participants will be provided a one-take voucher for the Python Institute’s PCEPTM- Exam
