The Java Programmer certificate program enables students to learn Java on-demand with personal facilitation to develop the skills needed to code, compile, and run stand-alone object-oriented Java programs. Students will learn how to create and deploy SOAP based and RESTful Web services as well as work with the Spring and Hibernate frameworks. Object-oriented concepts and proper use of classes, objects, inheritance and polymorphism are emphasized throughout. Coverage includes building applications by integrating Spring and Hibernate and utilizing Ajax on both the client and server sides. Students may choose from multiple IDEs for the extensive hands on labs, whether it be Eclipse, NetBeans or jEdit.
Upon completion of the Java Programmer certificate program, students will have developed an appropriate knowledge base and hands-on Java development experience to pursue an entry-level Java developer position in the workforce. The Java certificate program provides a solid foundation of knowledge for the Java SE Programmer I exam, if a student wishes to pursue certification.
Personally-facilitated and on-demand learning gives students the flexibility to learn Java programming skills around their schedule. The Java Programmer certificate program combines video, hands-on lab exercises and one-on-one facilitation to enable you to learn as your schedule allows. Competence with Java programming is built up via lab work that is performed on a dedicated remote lab machine that is provided for the student. Our commitment to creating skilled Java developers is made evident through each student's access to a personal Java instructor who has years of real-world Java experience. Instructors ensure that your online Java courses are completed on time with full understanding of both the lecture content and the hands-on lab exercises related to the skills needed to be a Java programmer. Your instructor provides personal facilitation until program completion, and they are a resource for when you have questions or need assistance with lab work.
