Are doing the course lessons required to get a certificate?

Hey it’s been quite a long time since I was active in FCC community. I got very busy and couldn’t complete what I had started.

I have been learned Python for many years. Just after my first daughter was born I started learning on my iPad … that was 7 years ago this coming week!

Anyway, I was thinking about FCC this past week and decided to check out what is new and exciting. I discovered several new Python certificates. I really like Python and I’m using it personally for a number of things. I don’t know about the future but I may possibly switch careers and these kind of things can help. I live in Japan and I still don’t know if I would be able to get a coding job without having a degree of some sort. (If anyone knows, let me know!)

I decided to take a crack at the Scientific Computing with Python certificate. When I looked at the lessons they just seemed very basic. So I skipped to the projects and I was able to complete them all.

Do I need to complete all the lessons as well in order to claim a certificate?

I also hope there’s no issue- I don’t know if I would get flagged for “doing it too fast.” I’m actually glad for those projects. I did learn a few things that I didn’t know before (I’ve never had to use copy.deepcopy() for anything! :stuck_out_tongue: ).

Completing the projects is enough validation for you to claim the certification.


Thank you @xynoan for the quick reply! I’ll hit the claim button!
