PCEP™ – Certified Entry-Level Python Programmer certification shows that the individual is 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.
Becoming PCEP™ certified ensures that the individual is acquainted with the most essential means provided by Python 3 to enable them to start their own studies at an intermediate level, and to continue their professional development.
PCEP™ certification is an interim step to the PCAP™ certification, and the starting point to launch a career in software development, Python programming, and related technologies. Becoming PCEP™ certified helps certification holders stand out from other candidates, get a foot in the door with an employer, and land a junior-level job in the IT sector and anywhere the basic knowledge of Python is an asset.
Python is the programming language that opens more doors than any other, and the more you understand Python, the more you can do in the 21st Century. With a solid knowledge of Python, you can work in a multitude of jobs and a multitude of industries.
PCEP™ certification will be particularly valuable for:
Python is either the highest-paid, or one of the highest-paid languages in all parts of the world today, and the salaries range between $90,000 and $130,000 a year (source: SalaryExpert.com).
With the ever-increasing reliance on the Internet, and with Python playing an ever-growing role, the salary of the average Python programmer is almost surely to rise.
Currently, there are 100,000+ unfulfilled Python jobs around the world, and the supply of qualified Python programmers is unable to match the demand.
I started the Python Certification Program featured by Python Institute to prepare myself for the Python Entry Level Certification. I strongly recommend this certification program and encourage anybody who wants to start a career in this matter – you won't be disappointed. With this program completed, I could obtain my PCEP certification and prepared for the PCAP as well, and also implemented some projects in my current job already.
