Golden, CO (PRWEB) April 19, 2013
Firebox has announced the addition of a new Python training course that will be offered in a four-day format. The course-ware being used for the new Python training course was recently completely re-engineered from the ground up. The previous version of the course-ware lacked some of the practical application aspects included in the new course. The new “Introduction to Python | Fundamentals and Essentials of Python” four-day course, jump starts students into action. After completing the course students will immediately be able to use Python to complete tasks in the real world.
“Some of our best Python instructors also do consulting. Instructor-led online Python courses help these instructors bring recent real-world experience to the classroom,” said Julie Johnson, Founder of Firebox Training.
“In this four-day Python Fundamentals training course, our students get a hands-on learning experience starting with the Python programming basics of writing and running Python scripts to even more advanced Python programming features such as file operations, regular expressions, and using the extensive functionality of Python modules,” said Mr. Johnson. “If you are an IT professional looking to modernize the tools in your skills set, becoming a Python programmer and developer is a definite must and Firebox can help you get there.”
Firebox Training is instructor-owned and instructor-operated. According to Firebox, Python and other programming instructors are well vetted - it’s part of why they seek out actively consulting instructors. Firebox seems to be finding success with this top-grading of instructor talent, which means only the most qualified deliver Python training. The new Introduction to Python four-day course is delivered most often as a live instructor-led public online course-the virtual classroom. Additionally, the courses are taught on-site at client locations throughout the US and world. Firebox also offers traditional classroom style IT training courses.
The upstart and growing IT training firm recently passed another milestone with their Firebox YouTube channel subscribers exceeding 1000. Firebox has also integrated many of the YouTube video training tutorials into their website blog including Python training videos like this one: http://www.fireboxtraining.com/blog/2013/04/17/python-training-how-to-install-pydev-plugin-in-eclipse/. Firebox also received some very positive feedback from recent post course student surveys, according to company sources.
“'Possibly the best online training courses I have ever taken,' was a student comment we received recently,” stated Shawn Johnson, Director of Operations at Firebox Training. “We take our post Python training surveys seriously and make adjustments as needed.”
