This Java SE 8 Associate training teaches students with little or no programming experience to begin to learn to program using the Java programming language. It explores the significance of object-oriented programming, the keywords and constructs of the Java programming language and the steps required to create simple Java technology programs.

This hands-on Java SE 8 Associate course provides an introduction to programming using the Java language. Students are introduced to the java building blocks, Object Oriented Programming techniques, and specific language syntax. The course introduces important algorithmic constructs, string and character manipulation, dynamic memory allocation and fundamental object-oriented programming concepts. The course explains the use of inheritance and polymorphism, implementing interfaces and abstraction early on so the students can practice extensively in the hands on labs. Object oriented programming techniques with the concept of SOA, Service Oriented Architecture, and exception handling is emphasised. The course includes an introduction to Netbeans, a recommended framework by Oracle Corporation for almost all kind of java application, so the student will be able to write flexible, user friendly programs.

Prerequisite for JAVA SE 8 Fundamental Course:

No Entry Requirement and no prior programming skills required to go into Level I certification, Basic programming knowledge is advantage.


You’ll gain hands on experience with basic object oriented programming concepts like inheritance, encapsulation and abstraction. Learn to create and use simple Java classes containing arrays, loops and conditional statements.

Comprehensive hands on exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce learning and develop real competency.
