Training Domains

  • Python programming
  • C programming
  • Data structures
  • Algorithms
  • Unix/linux
  • Mathematics

Training Levels

  • Numbered, with different domains having a different number of levels.
  • Each level is designed to be around BLANK many hours of work (depending on your background and how quickly you pick it up).
  • Each level assumes completion of the previously numbered level.

Training Packages

  • A package that adds up to CS 500, and similarly for CS 501, 151, 201, 202


  • Borrow heavily from materials, readings, videos from the courses we are running.
  • As much as possible use existing resources. The value of the training is in providing the framework, evaluation, and a guide.


  • Auto-graded quizes, quiz questions regularly updated/changed.
  • Auto-graded program output, programs regularly updated/changed.
  • Final interview.

What is Included in the Price

  • Access to training materials, training assignments/quizzes, auto-graded quizzes, auto-graded program output.
  • BLANK many chances at the final interview (required for officially completing/passing the training).
  • For US residents only - help/assistance using Microsoft Teams.
  • Fee per training level is BLANK.


  • One Microsoft Team for content and communication.
  • Separate Microsoft Team for help/assistance (US residents only).
  • Auto-graded quiz questions hosted securely off of the CS server.
  • Registration/payment from a system used by Community Engagement / ...

Course Credit

  • Prior Learning Assessment

Overall framework...

  • Skills-oriented - able to do a specific thing / solve a specific kind of problem
  • Problem of the day/week - some public, separate ones used for certifying
  • Evaluation - auto-checked problems of the day/week, final interview
  • Solution submission - results of running program, just put into a form; their source code, which won't need to be checked unless to verify

Skills combine and vocab+, to give "", "" combine to give course credit! What is "" called?

Skills, achievements, levels, roles, certification.


  • play computer (arithmetic, strings, functions, lists, loops, nested loops)
  • run the data structure (array [sorted / unsorted], linked list [singly / doubly linked], binary tree [non-balancing, AVL/red-black], hash table [buckets / probing], heap)

Training modules...

  • Python Programming - basic, intermediate
  • Linux Use - basic, intermediate
  • Discrete Mathematics - basic, intermediate
  • Data Structures - basic, intermediate
  • Algorithms - basic, intermediate

Sources of info...

  • Curated from publicly available sources, put into an outline to meet the goals
  • Khan Academy CSP
  • TutorialsPoint
  • w3schools
  • automatetheboringstuff

Software setup

  • Docker image with everything needed, all runs on their system
