PCEP | Certified Entry-Level Python Programmer Certification

Why you should learn Python in 2020

Python is the No.1 fastest-growing major programming language with 151% year-over-year growth, and this trend will doubtlessly continue in the next coming decade. Due to its swiss army knife-like-multipurpose nature you can do many things after learning Python. Python developers are one of the highest-paid developers, particularly in Data Science, Machine learning, and web development. On average, you can earn ranging from 70,000 USD to 150,000 USD depending upon your experience, location, and domain. Moreover, industry leaders like YouTube, Amazon, Google, Facebook, IBM, NASA, and Netflix are make extensive use of this language.

 

Who should take this course:

Whether you are an absolute beginner, a student or a working professional with experience in other programming languages, this bootcamp is for you. Our 2 days, in-class instructor led bootcamp will cover the complete syllabus as prescribed by the Python Institute along with preparing you for the Certification Exam.
