Overview

On this accelerated 4-day OCP Java SE 8 programming course, you'll develop your Java programming skills, focusing on the core language features and Application Programming Interfaces (API), object oriented development and the structure of Java applications.

This accelerated course offers a distraction free environment, allowing you to focus solely on learning. Your expert instructor will implement Firebrand's unique Lecture | Lab| Review technique, helping you to better understand and retain information.

You'll also learn:

  • Encapsulation, Polymorphism, and Abstraction
  • Interfaces, Lambda Expressions, Collections, and Generics
  • Inheritance, Interfaces, Exceptions, and Deployment
  • Date/Time API, I/O and File I/O (NIO.2), and Concurrency
  • Concurrency, Parallelism, the JDBC API, and Localisation

On this course, you'll prepare for and take the Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 8 Programmer II (1Z0-809) exam, covered by your Certification Guarantee.

Save hundreds by combining both the OCA Java SE 8 Programmer and OCP Java SE 8 Programmer courses on the accelerated 7-day Oracle OCA and OCP Java SE 8 Programmer Certification course.

If you're a system administrator, project, web developer, program or technical manager looking to improve your programming skills, this course is ideal for you.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online OCP Java SE 8 Programmer courses
  2. You'll be OCP Java SE 8 Programmer certified in just 4 days. With us, you’ll be OCP Java SE 8 Programmer trained in record time
  3. Our OCP Java SE 8 Programmer course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass OCP Java SE 8 Programmer first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
