Python Programmer Certificate

Online, self-paced training that is focused on giving you the skills needed to succeed.

1-course program: $1,195

The Python certificate program teaches students how to create Python scripts that manipulate data, automate tasks, perform error handling and store and retrieve data by using relational database as well as scripts that assist with system administration. Students will utilize the IDLE integrated development environment to perform hands-on lab exercises.

Online learning gives you the flexibility to plan study time around the rest of your day. Our programs combine video, hands-on lab exercises and one-on-one facilitation to enable you to learn as your schedule allows. Labs are performed via remote access to a dedicated lab machine (unless a student requests to utilize their own equipment). Our unique commitment to student success includes a personal instructor to assure that your courses are completed on time and with full understanding of both the lecture content and the lab exercises.
