Training and certifications
The JS Institute courses are designed with all the most important elements of interactive learning scenarios, gamified motivation systems, and well-planned learning paths. The courses cover theoretical and practical concepts essential for interacting with real-life programming tasks and situations. They incorporate quizzes, tests, interactive assessments, and lab exercises that facilitate the understanding of programming concepts and the conversion of knowledge into practical skills.
The OpenEDG JS Institute certification program was designed following a rigorous process of industry and market research to accurately determine the demand for specialized professionals in the given sectors: through Job Task Analyses (JTAs), Training Needs Analyses (TNAs), and Skills Gap Analyses (SGAs) aiming to identify the work requirements and skills sought by employers looking to hire Python programmers; and an intensive examination of the education system that lays out the foundation for the training and development of IT specialists, web developers, managers, and aspiring programmers.
Open Education and Development Group (OpenEDG), in its certification development process, adopts a meticulous, consultation-driven, and competency-oriented approach to test design, utilizing qualitative development frameworks, subject-centered design patterns, and psychometric modelling conducted in alignment with the prescriptive guidance for educational and psychological assessment practices put forth in the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing (AERA, APA, NCME), European Test User Standards (EFPA, EAWOP), and the European Test Review Model (EFPA, EAWOP).
