Practical project for certification

To attain the Certified Python Professional™ - (C|PP™) certification, students/attendees must complete their practical project in Module 9 of the course. This will need to be marked and assessed by the Obipixel Ltd | OBI Academy team.

All code and documentation will be required for this process and every details will be given to students/attendees upon starting their course. A practical project has been chosen to assess the skills needed to pass this certification, so that every student/attendee is tested correctly and fairly.

  • Duration: 30 days.
  • Pass: A pass is given once all the source code, testing and documentation has been assessed by our team.
  • Achievement: Certification (for life), Certificate and Badge (accessible via Accredible.com).
