You’re a PL/SQL Developer. Would Anyone Call You a Highly Productive One?

SQL Developers generally execute single query tasks while PL/SQL Developers bring higher productivity with skills and knowledge to execute entire blocks of code at once.

It’s great to be able to execute single query tasks but wouldn’t you rather be recognized for higher productivity?  You can.  An Oracle certification credential will help.   

Start with an Oracle Certified Associate credential, then as you gain experience and learn more add the Oracle Certified Professional to your resume.  Experience and knowledge – that’s the difference between our Associate and Professional credentials.  Professionals bring more value to the market and possess all the skills required to be tops at your job.

Your Guide to Getting Started With Java Certification

Working a career plan is hard enough without having to dig around to find everything you need.

The Java Foundations 1Z0-811 exam is priced lower but don’t let that fool you.  It is still a valid certification credential.  If you’ve taken Java Foundations training or the Java Coding and Concepts MOOC this is a great place to start.

If you’ve attended the Java Fundamentals training and had some hands on experience then the Java SE 8 Programmer I 1Z0-808 exam is a good choice. 

And, if you create web-based user interfaces using JavaScript along with JSPs, JSFs, servlets and handle business logic or have taken the Developing Applications for the Java EE 7 Platform course then the Java EE 7 Application Developer 1Z0-900 exam is for you.

The difference between the Junior Associate and the Associate certification credential is experience.  Take the Junior Associate if you haven’t gotten that needed experience yet.

Now that you know where to start its time to get ready for the exam.

First thing to do is to review Exam Topics.  This gives you a detailed list on what you will be tested on.  After reviewing the list you can determine what kind and how much additional help you need to prepare.
