Ivo Tantamango,

There is no mandatory course attendance requirement for SCJP and it is applicable for Java Architect and Java Developer exams (assignment based) only.

Beginning October 1, 2011, Java Architect, Java Developer, Solaris System Administrator and Solaris Security Administrator certification path requirements will include a new mandatory course attendance requirement.
