Python Advanced Certification Overview

Python is a robust programming language with a broad range of tasks and projects it can be used for. In the professional world, many businesses turn to Python 3 for object-oriented programming, databases, GUI programs and much more. Being able to perform advanced Python functions is a valuable skill in a variety of industries, and a great way to stay relevant in the tech sector.

The Python Advanced course is designed to help students with prior knowledge and experience in Python take their skills to the next level. Students will learn more complex Python concepts and push the limits of their abilities through practical exercises and assignments using Python 3. By building on fundamental Python principles, students will learn to confidently experiment with the scripts they write and to produce exciting, functional results. The Python certification also teaches students how to use applications that interact with Python, such as the Jupyter Notebook system.

Object-Oriented Programming

Object-oriented Programming (OOP) is a fundamental programming paradigm and the most popular one. OOP is supported in Python and nearly every developer will find themselves using OOP at some point in their career. Learning OOP through Python will teach students to model complex concepts as reproducible, simple structures. By gaining an understanding of classes, objects, methods, and attributes as they relate to OOP, students will be able to write and run Python scripts that can tackle more complicated tasks.


Python offers multiple options for developing a Graphical User Interface (GUI).  GUI allows users to interact with an application or program through visual components such as icons. Using Python, students will learn how to develop and modify elements of GUI to create user-friendly experiences. GUI development is a highly sought after skill by many organizations and learning how to use Python for GUI development will open up many opportunities for students.
