Sun Certified Java Programmer SCJP

Students who can benefit from this course are individuals with basic mathematical, logical, and analytical problem-solving skills and who want to begin learning the Java programming language. This includes technical writers, web developers, technical managers, and individuals with a technical, non-programming background, such as system administrators. This course is also appropriate for novice programmers and those programmers who prefer to start learning the Java programming language at an introductory level. However, individuals are encouraged to have had some programming experience, whether with a scripting language, such as Perl, or a third-generation language (such as Basic or C) prior to attending this course.
