NICF - Python Programming Intermediate Level Course

Python is the most popular programming language used in data analytics and machine learning. Many people have acquired basic Python programming skill at the beginner level such as data types, control structures and functions. However, this basic skill level is insufficient for them to perform more complex data analytics or machine learning tasks that require higher level of Python programming skill such as object-oriented programming (OOP), database management and error handling etc.

This 2-day WSQ Python Fundamental Intermediate Level Course is a follow up course from WSQ Python Fundamental for Beginnners course. It will help to meet the needs of these people who want to perform more complex data analytics and machine learning jobs by teaching them intermediate level Python coding
