PCEP: Course Objectives vs. Exam Objectives
The aim of the following courses:
- PCAP: Programming Essentials in Python (Cisco NetAcad, Instructor-Led: Modules 0-4),
- Python Essentials (Cisco NetAcad, Self-Study: Modules 1-4),
- and Programming Fundamentals in Python Part 1 (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 best practices.
After completing any of the courses the student should be familiar with universal computer programming concepts like data types, containers, functions, conditions, loops, as well as Python programming language syntax, semantics, and the runtime environment.
The courses are fully aligned with the PCEP – Certified Entry-Level Python Programmer certification provided by the OpenEDG Python Institute.
