Java SE programmer I certification track (OCA)

Certification for Java has become an important aspect for proving thorough knowledge of the Java environment. Hence the need for a good preparation to the certification exam. On the other hand, practical usage and understanding of Java is as important as remembering the method details or possible exceptions.

So, ABIS presents this certification track (part 1), preparing for the Oracle Certified Associate (OCA) Java SE8 programmer exam. This track can also be followed if you want to prepare for the Java SE7 OCA exam.For part 2, see Java SE8 programmer II certification track (OCP).

In the first part, the participants will become familiar with:

The combination of Java and the OO principles will be examined in detail, putting Java SE into practice through different exercises and cases.


No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please contact ABIS.

Intended for

Developers who want to prepare for Java certification, but also want to learn how to build OO applications in practice on a Java SE platform.


Participants should be familiar with informatics (see ABIS course Programming fundamentals).

Main topics

This certification track handles the basics of Java SE.

The implementation is done in a Java SE environment using Eclipse.

Training method

For this track, ABIS is using a blended learning approach. Course participants will combine e-learning and self-study with classroom instructor-led training sessions.

All parts/modules of the certification track are well aligned, in form and contents. The provided sequence of topics is well defined and described. Instructors are available during classroom sessions, as well as for questions during self-study/e-learning. Assessment of the learned concepts will be done via different test methods.

Participants use their own PC - on which a virtual course environment is installed - for the entire blended learning track. This will allow them to use this course environment throughout any stage of this blended learning track.

For more information on the training approach used, please consult Blended learningBlended learning.


7 days for classroom sessions with a typical elapsed time of 8 weeks.

Goed tevreden! (, )
    vooral gericht op examen. Zwaar als initiatiecursus. Vergt grote inspanning (Jurgen, Sep 2016)
zeer tevreden (, )
Voor mij was de tijd om voor te bereiden veel te kort, hierdoor heb ik te weinig kunnen herhalen en repeteren. (, )
Fijne diepgang (, )
