Certified Associate in Python Programming Certification is a professional credential that measures participants’ 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. It also shows that the participant is 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.

Becoming PCAP certified ensures that the participant is fully acquainted with all the primary means provided by Python 3 to enable participants to start their own studies, and to open a path to the developer’s career.

The course covers Python programming basics from the ground up. Topics from the exam syllabus are closely followed. The course also provides an online learning platform with e-courseware and several test exercises to well equip before the exam.
