Sun certification is basically awarded to people who demonstrate an advanced level of understanding of the concepts of Java. There are multiple levels of Java/Sun Certification for candidates with varying levels of Java knowledge from a beginner to the most advanced user. Sun has divided the certifications into 3 basic categories - Java Platform, Standard edition - Java Platform Enterprise Edition (Java EE, J2EE) and Java Platform Micro Edition (Java Certification for Mobile Development).
Sun/ Java offers various training and certifications in each of the three categories. A few years ago Oracle took over Sun Microsystems and since then all Sun/ Java exams are conducted by Oracle.
TOPS Technologies also offers training programs to become certified on the Sun platform. Each of our training programs enables the students to become well versed with Java and how it applied in a Live Project Training Java environment.
A lot of people have asked us what are the benefits of becoming certified - In real terms, there is limited value in becoming certified, but it adds a very important line on your resume "Sun Certified Java Professional" (SCJP). The Sun Certification tells a prospective employer that you are qualified and ready for the job vacancy at the IT companies.
