I am a Java Developer , already have SCJP, SCWCD and SCBCD

I am now thinking to have wider skills rather than only focus in code development, I have 3 years experience in developing Java EE Web Application using JSP/Servlet, JSF, Struts, Spring, Hibernate/JPA, IBM DB2, Oracle DB, IBM Websphere, and Oracle Weblogic.

Any suggestion on the following two certification , which one will help me most ?
(1) LPIC Level 1
(2) Oracle 1Z0-047 exam which gain me a Oracle Database: SQL Certified Expert OCE cert , and with additional IZ0-052 exam will gain a Oracle 11g DBA OCA cert

Thanks. Please advice, if any other cert which you found useful for my situation.


SCJP 6, SCWCD 5, SCBCD 5

You say you are interested in learning wider skillsets, what about some form of project management certification?

ITIL or Prince2 might be a good start. I did ITIL v3 foundation recently and it was really easy...I think Prince2 is similar, just sit a course, pay attention and pass exam

It is - I did the PRINCE2 exam earlier this year. Helps if you've got someone else paying for it, though .

Thanks for your suggestion.

Prince2 works? I mean in practical. Will that help ? I always hear those buzz word like "Agile/Scrum/XP", then CAPM/PMP.

Prince2 is pretty much the standard project management cert.

Every PM should at least have that, or at least know what it involves

You are a developer, so I recommend you path 2)

Be warned "SQL Certified Expert" is a really hard exam. But databases very important. Linux is more for system administators, which means the guys who run your application.
