Programming Fundamentals Diploma

If you have an analytical mind and strong problem-solving skills, this could be the right career choice for you.

Smartphones, laptops, PCs, websites, and video games all run digitally scripted programs and, as the digital revolution continues, the reach of computer programming now plays a major role in other frequently used items, such as cars, household appliances, and watches.

With such a widespread growth in the demand for programming, there is a need for knowledgeable, qualified programmers who can not only write software programs but test, develop, and maintain them, as well.

If you’re new to computer programming, the prospect of learning how to write a digital script from scratch could be a daunting prospect. This diploma is designed for those completely new to the profession.

There are four core courses that will introduce you to programming concepts and guide you through the languages we’ll be focusing on –– HTML and CSS. You can then select one elective course to complement the core training and that suits your personal aspirations and goals.
