PCAP: Course Objectives vs. Exam Objectives

The aim of the following courses:

  • PCAP: Programming Essentials in Python (Cisco NetAcad, Instructor-Led)
  • Python Essentials (Cisco NetAcad, Self-Study)
  • and Programming Fundamentals in Python Part 1 and Part 2 (OpenEDG Education Platform, Self-Study)

is to familiarize the student 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.

Completing any of the courses ensures that the student is fully acquainted with all the primary means provided by Python 3 to enable her/him to start her/his own studies, and to open a path to the developer’s career.

The courses are fully aligned with the PCAP – Certified Associate in Python programming certification provided by the OpenEDG Python Institute in collaboration with Pearson VUE.
