On this accelerated 3-day OCA Java SE 8 programming course, you'll be introduced to object orientated programming using the Java language.

Using our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, your expert instructor will guide you through creating command-line Java applications and creating conditional statements and loops. This technique, which combines both theoretical and practical tasks, will accelerate your learning as well as provide you with the hands-on experience you'll need to apply your skills to the real-world. You'll also learn how to:

  • Apply Object-Oriented concepts such as Encapsulation, Inheritance and Polymorphism
  • Use java types
  • Manipulate Arrays and Collections
  • Handle Exceptions
  • Take advantage of new Java SE 8 features, such as Lambda expressions and Date/Time API
