The C Essentials ‒ Part 1 (BASICS) course is the first in a 2-course series that will prepare you for the CLE (C Certified Entry-Level Programmer) and CLA (C Programming Language Certified Associate) exams.
The course covers the basics of programming in the C programming language and touches on fundamental programming techniques, customs and vocabulary, including the most common library functions.
The aim of the course is to familiarize the student with the basic concepts of computer programming and developer tools, present the syntax, semantics and data types offered by the language, and allow the student to write his or her own programs using standard language infrastructure, regardless of the hardware or software platform.
The course is designed for beginners. No prior knowledge of programming is required.
Whenever a code strongly associated with the operation of equipment is created, the C language proves its flexibility and adaptability. Network card drivers, graphics card software, operating systems and micro-controllers – these things can be found all around you, on your desk and in your car, in the kitchen and in the garage, simply everywhere intelligent electronics functions – you are sure to find the work of programmers who write in “C”. The heart of Linux is nearly 15 million lines of code in “C”. There is no better evidence for the language’s longevity.
The C language is the absolute essential for entry-level and software development jobs.
The C Essentials ‒ Part 1 (Intermediate) course is fully aligned with the CLE ‒ C Certified Entry-Level Programmer certification and is the first in a 2-course series that prepares for CLA ‒ C Certified Associate Programmer certification.
CLE ‒ C Certified Entry-Level Programmer certification shows that the individual is familiar with universal computer programming concepts like compilation, variables, data types, typecasting, operators, conditional execution, loops, arrays, pointers, memory management, functions, and the runtime environment.
Becoming CLE certified ensures that the individual is familiar with the universal concepts of computer programming as well as acquainted with the most essential means provided by the C language, which enable them to start their own studies at the next level of C programming education, and to continue their professional development.
