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).
