Oracle University Course Title: Java SE: Programming I

More than 3 billion devices run Java. As our world becomes more digital, the number of smart devices that run Java is increasing exponentially. Java has moved beyond just computers. Cell phones, parking meters, public transportation passes, ATMs, credit cards, and TVs, to name a few, run Java. Java Certified Professionals are needed to program all these devices.

Well-trained, highly skilled Java professionals are in demand!

  • Earning a Java Certification deepens your Java expertise; you’ll develop sought after skills that map directly to real-world jobs
  • 10 Million Java developers worldwide. You’ll stand out from the pack by earning a certification that truly validates your Java expertise
  • 97% of certified Java professionals say they benefit from knowledge they acquired while preparing to take their certification exams, according to Java Magazine
  • 93% of hiring managers say IT certifications are beneficial and provide value to the company according to CompTIA.

The process of becoming Java certified broadens an individuals knowledge and deepens your skills through exposure to a wide array of important features, functions and tasks. As you prepare for these certification exams, you can work your way through hands-on exercises and labs using real Java code, which expands on your own capabilities as a Java developer.

This entry-level course is aimed at programmers who are new to Java and who need to learn its concepts, language constructs, and data types. The course is designed for programmers who will apply these language skills to develop programs using the latest major versions of the JDK, currently Java 11.

This course (NICF Java SE: Programming I), together with NICF Java SE: Programming II (SF) will help you prepare for Oracle Certified Professional: Java SE Developer certification.
