Knowing how to write code to solve problems and automate solutions is a crucial skill for anybody in IT. In particular, Python is now employers’ most in-demand programming language.
This program builds on your IT foundations to help you take your career to the next level. It’s designed to teach you how to program with Python and use Python to automate common system administration tasks. You’ll also learn to use Git and GitHub, troubleshoot and debug complex problems, and apply to scale automation by using configuration management and the Cloud.
This certificate can be completed in about six months and is designed to prepare you for various roles in IT, like more advanced IT Support Specialist or Junior Systems Administrator positions. Upon completion, you can share your information with potential employers, like Walmart, Sprint, Hulu, Bank of America, Google (of course!), and more.
We recommend that you have Python installed on your machine. For some courses, you’ll need a computer to install Git or ask your administrator to install it.
