If you’re looking to start a career in coding, but don’t know where to begin, this might be for you. This course is aimed at absolute beginners that have never done any coding before and are unsure of which programming language to focus on. The course is structured to allow you to choose a specific programming language to learn and ultimately a career path to choose. As an example, you have the opportunity to learn coding to build websites, analyse data, develop artificial intelligence, create databases, and build games, plus much more.
Early on in the course, you’ll learn what coding is, what certain types of languages are used for, and the types of careers available through learning those languages. The focus then shifts to you. At this point, you’re asked a series of questions to help determine the best direction in the course for you. The answers you give effectively help to offer suggestions on the pace of the course for you, and the programming language to learn.

At any point in time, you can switch direction by choosing a different language to learn. You may find that you start off learning to code with the purpose of analysing data, only to find out that you want to develop websites instead, which may require you to shift to a different language. Another feature of the course is that you’re not confined to learning just one language.
How does this course work?
The course is comprised of two main parts, which are self-paced. Part one covers foundational learning as described above. Part two is effectively a second course that is geared toward gaining a Microsoft certification. The language you choose to study in part one, will determine which Microsoft certification course you will take in part two.
The Microsoft certification you’ll gain is called the Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA). You will choose one MTA certification from the list below to work toward for this course:
- MTA: Introduction to Programming Using Python
- MTA: Introduction to Programming Using Java
- MTA: Introduction to Programming Using HTML and CSS
- MTA: HTML5 Application Development Fundamentals
- MTA: Software Development Fundamentals
- MTA: Database Fundamentals (SQL)
What will I learn from this course?
By the end of part one of this course, you’ll be able to understand programming, write basic code, grasp programming concepts, think like a programmer, understand the tools in coding, have a better idea of careers available in coding, and gain practical experience by creating portfolio-worthy projects. In part one, you’ll be guided through each step. You’ll learn the right thing at the right time. By the time you reach part two of the course, you’ll have a clearer understanding of what certification you want to work towards.
How long will it take me to complete part 2 of this course?
Part 2 of this course comprises of around 35 hours of video tutorials (where applicable), as well as 25+ hours of live practice lab material; and 50+ hours of practice test material. How soon you can complete the course is dependent on several factors such as the amount of time you can dedicate to the course each week, and how quickly you absorb information. Learners can complete a course within this bundle from anywhere between 1-6 hours. Revision for each exam will take a minimum of 2 weeks. We recommend you spend at least 9 hours on the course per week to be able to finish it within 3 and a half months. You will have full access to the course material and resources for 12 months and must take your exams within this period.
