Are these courses good enough to justify my company paying for me??

Morning Ranchers,

I have to come to ask for your help.. Recently I have just got the approval from my current employers to pay for my Java training as long as I can justify it.

I have found two courses that I am interested in. ( One after the other) Just need a bit of guidance of how I can justify the skills I can gain from these courses.

Basically I work for Greggs the bakers and currently am working in the support team and want to develop my Java skills to help me migrate to a different field, I have spoken to a few people who are happy for me to start building projects to be used in the company. For example Area manager reports, Training manuals etc. (Interactive)

Can someone who has a idea about the following courses, please give me a brief description of the advantages or any types of programs these courses would help me build etc?

If these courses are not good enough, then I�d be happy to look at any other suggestions?

Thank you for your time.

Course SL-275-SE6 is essential for you to start in Java programming.

Course DTJ-4103 is irrelevant for the purpose you described.

SL-275-SE6 sounds as if there's nothing in it that's not covered in the Sun Java Tutorial (which you can work through for free, at your leisure).
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
