SCJD/OCMJD Exam Requirements

Hi

I have completed my SCJP last year and wishing to take the SCJD/OCMJD exam. On the Oracle website it mentions the following:

This course counts towards the Hands-on course requirement for the Java SE 6 Developer Certification. Only instructor-led inclass or instructor-led online formats of this course will meet the Certification Hands-on Requirement. Self Study CD-Rom and Knowledge Center courses DO NOT meet the Hands-on Requirement.

I am not exactly sure what this means? Does it mean it is mandatory to attend a inclass instructor or pay for a online format?

When I did my SCJP I prepared using Books and Online websites. Having read the above I am little bit confused.

Yes, you have to follow an instructor-led course. More info about this mandatory course requirement can be found here.

Hi

Just to add more information.

If the above is true, which is for instructor classroom training. Which certifications can be done through books and online that don't cost much. For example, Oracle website mentions the following:

Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) Developer £2,235

Basically, any certification on the Oracle website mentions around price above. When I did my SCJP it cost be £202. Is there any other certification that is lower in price?

Any help would be helpful.

Hi

Thanks for your help.

Also, I am learning the Spring framework. I am aware that the Spring certification is too costly. I have also learnt Enterprise Java Beans.

Which exam would you recommend in doing? In the near future I will be working in Java Spring. So anything that would help towards this.

If you'll work in a Spring environment, I think the Spring Core certification will give you the most benefit (and ROI).

Hi

But the cost of that is too costly. I think I checked last time it was around £20, 000 because it is required to attend the classroom training.

Is there anything similiar to that in Java? Maybe the EJB Certification exam because it is similar to Spring. What do you say?

You attend a course and you'll get a voucher to take the corresponding certification exam. If you keep an eye on these certifications, you maybe can benefit of a promotion. I paid 2000 euros for a Spring MVC training. If you'll work in a Spring environment in near future the Spring Core training (and certification) is your best option.
If you don't want to spend that money, then you can take the regular certifications (Business Component Developer, Web Component Developer,...).
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
