Computer programming is usually a two year program that can be taken at most universities.

If you want to be taken seriously, you'll need to attend a 4 year accredited college Computer Science program. If you REALLY want to go places, go the 2 or 3 extra years to get a masters degree.

You can learn programming by doing it - a degree may or may not help, but actual samples of your coding often will do more for you to get a job as a programmer than a degree. You can also look for internships to show your skill or even volunteer for small nonprofits.

You will almost always need a 4 year degree especially if you want to work for companies making AAA games. Once in awhile, I see a very talented young programmer who has maybe 3 years of college finished and through internships is picked up by a company without a degree. This is not the usual route though. GET A DEGREE!

Do you need to take an aptitude test to become a computer programmer? No, you don't. Given sufficient time anyone can program a computer. But without the required aptitude, it will take longer to become proficient. No institution is going to give a highly sought-after position to someone who may not have the aptitude over someone who evidently does.
