“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.
