Certified Associate in Python Programming
PCAP™ – Certified Associate in Python Programming certification focuses on the Object-Oriented
Programming approach to Python, and shows that the individual is familiar with the more advanced
aspects of programming, including the essentials of OOP, the essentials of modules and packages,
the exception handling mechanism in OOP, advanced operations on strings, list comprehensions,
lambdas, generators, closures, and file processing.
PCAP™ certification gives its holders confidence in their programming skills, helps them stand out
in the job market, and gives them a head start on preparing for and advancing to the professional
PCAP™ – Certified Associate in Python Programming certification (Exam PCAP-31-0x) is a
professional, high-stakes credential that measures the candidate’s ability to perform
intermediate-level coding tasks in the Python language, including the ability to design, develop,
debug, execute, and refactor multi-module Python programs, as well as measures their skills and
knowledge related to analyzing and modeling real-life problems in OOP categories with the use of
the fundamental notions and techniques available in the object-oriented approach.
The PCAP™ certification shows that the individual is familiar with the following concepts: modules,
packages, and PIP, character encoding, strings and string processing, generators, iterators,
closures, files, file streams, and file processing, exception hierarchies, and exception classes and
objects, working with selected Standard Library modules, and the fundamentals of the
Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) approach.
Becoming PCAP™ certified ensures that the individual is fully acquainted with all the primary means
provided by Python 3 to enable them to start their own studies at an advanced level, and to open a
path to the developer’s career.
PCAP™ certification is an interim step to the PCPP1™ certification, a great motivator for
self-improvement and self-development, and most importantly – the means to keep one’s
programming skills up to date and demonstrate them to others. Becoming PCAP™ certified reflects
the candidate’s interest in developing a higher level of proficiency and a more in-depth
understanding of Python, as well as their ability to use it for commercial and non-commercial
general-purpose programming projects, and create, develop, and improve their own programming
portfolio to increase their value in the job market
