About the OpenEDG Python Institute

The Python Institute is a separate non-profit project venture created, run, and managed by OpenEDG, the Open Education and Development Group, with the goals of promoting the Python programming language, educating a new generation of Python programmers, and fostering professional careers in Python and related technologies. The OpenEDG Python Institute offers an independent global framework for curriculum development, skills assessment, and Python programming high-stakes exams. This framework is in keeping with the strategic goals connected with the enhancement and development of professions in Python programming.

We work closely with schools, colleges, and universities, as well as companies, organizations, and institutions to help them fulfill their needs, goals, and commitments with regard to the Python language. Here are some of the ways we do that:

  • Develop methodologies for teaching Python, create course content and help adapt curriculums and frameworks for course design and delivery to improve the quality of Python education;
  • Develop frameworks and benchmarks for Python skills assessment, and perform Job Tasks Analyses (JTAs), Training Needs Analyses, Skills Gap Analyses, and market studies (qualitative and quantitative types of research) to analyze and understand the actual demand for Python and related technologies in order to bridge the gap between the education and industry sectors;
  • Provide teaching and learning tools and resources for educational institutions and individual learners;
  • Support and foster the development of the Python language and Python programming projects, support the work and mission of the Python Software Foundation, and promote the initiatives carried out by vibrant Python communities;
  • Promote the development and implementation of open-source projects, especially those that address the needs and crises that exist in the world today.

Python Certifications

PCPP1 – Certified Professional in Python Programming 1 certification shows that the individual is familiar with the more advanced perspective of classes and features of object-oriented programming. The scope of certification also includes graphical user interface programming (TkInter), best practices and coding conventions (PEP 20, PEP 8, PEP 257), working with selected library modules allowing to process different kinds of files (xml, csv, sqlite3, logging, configparser), and utilizing tools and resources for the purposes of communicating with external resources and servers using the HTTP protocol and sockets (working with RESTful APIs).

Becoming PCPP1 certified ensures that the individual is fully acquainted with all the advanced means provided by Python 3 and related technologies to enable her/him to advance her/his career as a professional Python developer.
