Am Gopinath from Chennai with 1+ experience in Java domain.
Looking to complete the SCEA certification.
How is the future for SCEA certified professional..
Whatever it is ??Can anyone give the latest cost of SCEA and SCJP certification.....
It varies by country. In the US, it costs $900 for the SCEA/OCMJEA since there are three parts plus the mandatory exam which is thousands of dollars. (Go to Oracle.com to get it for your country.) The SCJP has changed to a two part format as well so $600 in the US. And doesn't require a course.
Why do you want to take the SCEA? It doesn't sound like you have enough experience for it yet.
Certifications that are controlled by for-profit companies are always geared towards sales revenue. In these situations, the certificates, exams and related training are "products." This is not a personal opinion. This is a widely known fact.

I agree, products to make them money in my opinion. Not education tools.
I don't see the point in continuing with the certification program myself, so I won't be.
