Selecting The Right Training Program Is Worth The Effort.

Given the number of available Python Programming career training programs, the selection process may appear daunting but comparing the characteristics of the various offerings will quickly narrow the options. Below are ten characteristics that we think you should carefully consider in your selection process.

Will the training guarantee me a job?

You need to keep in mind that well over 95% of job openings require prior experience so the question you need to ask any training organization is whether they provide you practical experience. In our case, the answer is a definite YES.

We are pleased to report that people who have taken our Python Developer career training to get better jobs or to grow in their current jobs have done so in very short order after graduating and often before graduating.

We have a relationship with large numbers of employers who understand the value of our training and use our recruitment portal to get a chance to interview you when you graduate or even before you do so.

While, alongside other training programs, our training fully prepares you to take the Python Institute PCEP and PCAP industry-recognized certification exams, it is our learn-by-doing training that follows an unpaid apprenticeship model that makes us unique in providing you the practical experience that you need to qualify for job openings.

Our training uses a proprietary Artificial Intelligence-based teaching platform that delivers you bite-sized knowledge followed by mini projects that confirm your ability to use your new knowledge. Those mini projects number in the hundreds, during which the platform watches your every step in realtime and helps you with contextual help, hints, and templates, as needed. Those mini projects, in turn, provide you the skills that employers want you to have, the confidence to make use of those skills, and a feeling of accomplishment as you progress through your training.

While the teaching platform is there at your side helping you at all times during your work, you're also assigned a personal coach who:

  • Meets with you weekly to discuss your progress;
  • Is available to you, as needed, throughout your training;
  • Teaches you soft skills that you will use throughout your career;
  • Makes you ready for job interviews.

How much does the training cost?

If you look at the various Python Developer career training programs that are available, you’ll find that there’s a wide range of pricing. There are even free Python Developer training programs but the expression “you get what you pay for” definitely applies; if someone is offering their training for free, it’s likely to be exactly what you’ll get out of it.

After all, the reason that providers can offer online training for free is that they have invested very little in content creation (usually consisting of video lectures) and leave you on your own to complete work assignments. That is a guaranteed formula for failure and is the reason that an average of 15% of online training programs ever get completed.

In our case, our proprietary Artificial Intelligence-based teaching platform delivers you bite-sized knowledge that is immediately followed by hands-on work, during which the platform watches your every step in realtime and assists you with contextual help, hints, and templates, as needed.

During your training, you're also assigned a personal coach who:

  • Meets with you weekly to discuss your progress;
  • Is available to you, as needed, throughout your training;
  • Teaches you soft skills that you will use throughout your career;
  • Makes you ready for job interviews.

The price of our training program is $5,600. It includes all training materials and personal instructional support and coaching throughout your training.

Do check with us to see if you qualify for government and/or grant funding. Do also check with your employer because we have a good percentage of our trainees whose tuition is paid by their employers. If your only option is to pay for the training yourself, we have payment options that reduce the amount of money you need to put forward to start your training.

Who is the training targeted at?

You'll want to look closely at prerequisites when selecting a training program because many Python Programmer training programs are targeted at individuals with a strong math background, prior programming experience, and/or a certain level of formal education.

Our Python Programmer career training program is unique in the way its prerequisites are your ability to learn, your motivation, and your willingness to work hard, rather than your prior knowledge. That is only possible because our training program incorporates foundational training for people who need or want it, at no additional cost.

And because we do a very detailed pre-enrollment assessment, when you enroll, you can be confident that you'll be able to successfully complete your training and get a great job.

How is the training done?

There is a huge difference in how Python Developer career training is done and the results speak for themselves. While an average of 15% of all online training programs reach completion, our Python Developer career training has over a close to 100% completion rate.

While other career training programs use a combination of lengthy lectures and unassisted work assignments, we use a proprietary Artificial Intelligence-based training platform to deliver you bite-sized knowledge that is immediately followed by hands-on exercises, during which the platform watches your every step and helps you with contextual help, hints, and templates, as needed. As a result, you spend 100% of their learning time actively working your way through interactive course materials. You are also provided personal coaching and instructional support throughout your training as an integral part of our training approach.

Our learn-by-doing training is only possible because each of the courses has taken thousands of hours to build and because the courses are presented through a powerful Artificial Intelligence-based teaching platform.

Trainees love our hands-on training with instant assessment because it gives them both a feeling of accomplishment and the confidence needed to go out and apply their new knowledge.

Can I learn anywhere, anytime?

Is your schedule unpredictable and subject to unplanned changes? If so, you’ll want to look closely at how the training you will be taking is done because you could easily find yourself missing key learning sessions due to scheduling conflicts and other commitments.

At NCLab, our training is self-paced, which means you can do your training anywhere, at any time, and all of our training is competency-based, which means that you can't go on to a new topic until you've mastered the current topic. As a result, when you complete your training, you've learned and made use of each new concept, and the fact that we are self-paced means that you'll never miss a lesson because of other commitments. This is particularly attractive for people in the workforce who have to work around their employer and family commitments and responsibilities.

Is a bootcamp the right approach for me?

Bootcamps are concentrated programs that teach essential skills and provide real-world training for people seeking jobs in computer and information technology fields. They consist of the same lengthy lectures and unassisted work assignments as college courses, albeit in a more concentrated fashion. As such, they require you to be available when the instructor is performing the instruction or you are left listening to lectures with no ability to interact with the instructor as the material is being presented. Similarly, when you are doing work assignments, you don't have anyone looking over your shoulder and helping you, when you want help. This is not a formula for success.

At NCLab, because of the way our training is done, we fit the description of a bootcamp for those of you who have the time and motivation to progress quickly but we don't leave you behind when you have other commitments or are challenged with a new concept and want more time to absorb it. The magic of the NCLab competency-based training is only possible because we use a proprietary Artificial Intelligence-based teaching platform that delivers you bite-sized knowledge that is immediately followed by hands-on exercises, during which the platform watches your every step in realtime and helps you with contextual help, hints, and templates, as needed.

To further ensure your success, you’re assigned instructional support and coaching personnel who:

  • Meet with you weekly to discuss your progress;
  • Are available to you, whenever you need help;
  • Teach you soft skills that you will use throughout your career;
  • Makes you ready for job interviews.

At NCLab, you are the one who sets the pace and you can go as fast as you are capable of going, knowing that you'll never be left behind. When you get done with your training, you'll be job-ready because you will have gathered the knowledge, experience, competency, and confidence needed to be a Python Programmer, no matter what pace you chose to get the training done.

Will I be able to successfully complete the training?

This is a question that you should ask, given online training's poor track record. Interestingly, while an average of 15% of all online training programs go to completion, our completion rate is close to 100%.

It all begins with making sure the training approach is right for you. At NCLab, we do a very detailed 2-hour pre-enrollment assessment, so that when you enroll, you can be confident that you’ll be able to successfully complete your training and get a great job.

Other training programs typically feed you information in the form of lengthy lectures and then leave you on your own to complete work assignments; that is a sure formula for failure. We never leave you alone to complete assignments. Rather, our AI-based teaching platform watches you doing work and guides and assists you in realtime, based on its observation of your progress. At your behest, it provides contextual help, hints, and templates.

You're also provided a personally-assigned coach to further oversee your progress and help you get to the finish line.

The bottom line is that you will successfully complete our training if you are committed and put in the required effort.

How long will my training take?

Python programming can’t be learned in a few weeks by passively watching video tutorials and then doing some coding assignments on your own. It’s an advanced skill set which can only be mastered with a significant amount of closely supervised practice.

Our Python Developer career training program takes approximately 320 hands-on hours, but may vary, depending on your existing programming experience. You are assigned a coach who prepares a personalized roadmap and training timeline for you, and then works with you for the entire duration of the training. Because your training is self-paced and individualized to your schedule, you are able to build a consistent training routine with your coach that does not interfere with your work and family commitments.

What support will I get?

To get you to the point that you are job-ready, it's important that your training program be more than a series of lectures and independently-conducted work assignments, yet that is the way it's done by most online training programs and undoubtedly the major reason that an average of 15% of the training programs are successfully completed.

At NCLab, you're never left on your own. Our proprietary Artificial Intelligence-based training platform delivers you bite-sized knowledge that is immediately followed by hands-on exercises, during which the platform watches your every step in realtime and helps you with contextual help, hints, and templates, as needed.

Whenever you need further assistance, you have access to an instructional support person who makes use of a very sophisticated learning management system to identify exactly where you are having difficulty and quickly gets you back on track.

You also have a personal coach who is with you every step of the way. That relationship begins with the development of your custom training plan that takes into consideration your family and work responsibilities and it continues with weekly coaching sessions, during which you and your coach review your progress, consider adjustments to your plan, and your coach incrementally makes you ready for job interviews and entering the workforce.

What credentials will I receive on completion?

As part of our training program, we prepare you to take the Python Institute's PCEP (Certified Entry-Level Python Programmer) and PCAP (Certified Associate in Python Programming) industry-recognized certification exams.

Beyond preparation for those certifications, we influence potential employers and placement agencies to get you a great Python Programmer job, using our in-depth knowledge of your qualifications and capabilities, upon the completion of your training.

In Summary

Your training is your path to a very bright future. We will stop short of nothing to make sure that we make that happen for you. We are committed to providing you with the necessary knowledge, practical experience, competency, and confidence that you need to get there.

What Our Trainees Say About Us

I love going to work every day!

“Thank you for giving me the competency and confidence that I needed to get a dream job. With my limited formal education, I had serious doubts that I could master SQL and Python but learning by doing worked perfectly.” G.K.

Perfect teaching method

“As an adult with a busy schedule and the need to work around banking business hours etc.: this method of teaching is perfect for me and I would recommend it for basically anyone on any subject.” F. V.

Superb way to learn

“I really enjoyed the self-paced format of this training program. The material was presented clearly and concisely and allowed me to focus longer on concepts that were difficult, while glancing over concepts I was already familiar with.” A.C.

This is how I like to learn

“This is how I like to learn, at my own pace. I like the bite-sized tutorials and I feel a real sense of accomplishment when I complete the exercises that follow them.” M.J.

Great training!

“I watched videos, read short tutorials, viewed examples, ran demo programs, and then performed exercises that demonstrated my comprehension of the subject matter.” S.L.

The training is really great!

“Not easy but really informative. Practical experience was what I wanted and I feel that I got it.” F. Z.

The program is great

“I cannot compliment enough any training that involves students actually working on the problems rather than just listening.” A. S.

Compliments to the NCLab team

“Please extend my compliments to the NCLab team if you can, and keep advocating for this type of learning, if at the very least as an option for people like me who learn well this way.” F. A.

I’m really enjoying this class

“The emphasis on working at your own pace removes the stress of a normal class, and I can work around my other classes. NCLab is much better than similar programs, such as DataCamp. Not only do I learn the material, I retain it. Each lesson uses all or most of the previous concepts, which provides additional practice and ensures that you don’t forget the previous material. This is one of the most enjoyable and informative programs I’ve taken.” N. L.

It’s working well

“It might sound weird, but I feel as though it teaches the right parts for Python. When I was learning Python before, there were a lot of steps that felt skipped but are explained now.” P.T.

I am thoroughly enjoying the training

“I feel like I am learning a skill, much more than I felt in other courses. The use of repetition, doing programming in pieces, and the entire way the platform is laid out are far superior to how my university teaches their main, introductory, programming courses. It is too bad that the philosophy of academia is standing in its own way.” K.L.

I love it!

“I feel like I am actually LEARNING how to program, and the chunking method of the material is wonderful.” D.A.

Yes!!

“I am really enjoying this course and learning python and I also like the way that it teaches the material. I’m very glad I took this course!” R. B.

Large amount of Python programming practice

“I really enjoyed and found the Python Fundamentals and Advanced Python courses incredibly useful. In fact, the large amount of Python programming practice questions in both courses helped me obtain my summer software development internship at Pfizer by preparing me for a variety of programming interview questions.” F. F.

Accelerate your career and create a better life ahead.

 

You’ll never find a better time to get start your training.
