Python certificate alongside c++?

So I’m currently taking the c++ certificate course, and I’m almost halfway done, and there’s still a little over two months before my grad program in quant finance begins. I want to fill up my time slots more before school starts, and since programming is my weakest link right now, I’m thinking of taking another programming course, and python is the first that comes to my mind. But I’ve read we should complete the c++ first before starting on this python course, and I’m only halfway done the c++ course. If I begin the python course right now, is that do-able? Or should I wait till I finish c++.
