Benefits of Certification

“If two people with roughly the same background and experience are vying for the same job, the certified person will usually get to the top of the HR pre-screening pile. Certification gives an employee the edge.” – Hans Forbrich, CEO, Forbrich Computing, provider of Oracle Certification. Java SE 8 significantly changes the way Java Programmers write code. Earning a Java SE 8 Certification gives you the tools to make the most of the new features within Java SE 8. The Java SE 8 Oracle Certified Associate (OCA) certification helps you build a foundational understanding of Java, while expanding your knowledge of general programming. The ideal candidate who would earn this certification typically has a technical background and wants to improve programming skills, or may be new to object-oriented programming and Java. Candidates who earn the OCA are in a great position to earn the Oracle Certified Professional (OCP) certification, as OCA is a prerequisite certification for those pursuing the more advanced OCP.
