Our three-day fast-track Python course combines topics from our two-day Introduction to Python course and our three-day Advanced Python course, and is aimed at those who are confident that they will be able to cover material quickly. Here's how the course will typically unfold:
you'll spend the first two days learning the theory of Python programming; then
the last day putting it into practice for things like scraping websites and creating and manipulating Pandas dataframes (think Excel, but witthout the glossy user interface or speed overhead)
If you find the thought of learning something for three continuous days daunting, and have a group of 3 or more people who want training, you may prefer to book a tailored course instead (in which case you can within reason choose the venue, the topics to be covered and the course dates).
This fast-track course combines topics from the following other Wise Owl courses:

Below are some notes on how Wise Owl courses work, to help you decide whether they're for you or not.
If you book on a classroom course, the only thing you need to bring to the course is ... yourself! We even provide a notepad and a suprisingly nice pen for you to take notes with.
For online training you'll need two things:
You can see full details of our online course requirements here.
If you book a place on one of our courses:
Whatever type of course you book, we will also send you out a reminder a few days before the course is due to take place - not that (we hope) you'll have forgotten!
For classroom training, you won't need a computer - we (obviously) will provide that. However, you're welcome to use your own laptop if you prefer, providing that you have the correct software installed.
For online training you will need a computer, but you won't need to have any software installed. This is because you'll use Windows Remote Desktop to connect to our computers, and these will have all of the necessary files and software installed.
For online courses you will be able to join up to half an hour before the course begins. This will give you time to:
For classroom training it's always nice if people arrive a bit early too, to give people time to meet each other (and drink coffee).
After the course finishes you'll receive a digital certificate proving your attendance (we will gladly send a paper copy on request also).
We don't have any formal arrangement for answering questions after the course, but if you get stuck on something and email your trainer they should (and nearly always do!) respond as quickly as their training schedule allows.
