Sun’s  Certification Program in Java technology has been fully integrated with the Oracle Certification Program. This is an industry recognized, worldwide program that focuses on critical job roles in software application development and enterprise architecture. Since these certifications focus on the technology, the knowledge and skills learned while preparing for Sun’s certifications are transportable from one company to another. We believe that certification is central to the learning process as it provides validation of skill sets for specific job roles. Java technology certification also offers a natural progression to support your career goals.

  1. First, by becoming a Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 5/SE 6 we verify that you have a base set of knowledge that enables entry into a career in application development or software project management using Java technology.
