I've noticed over the last several weeks that there is some confusion regarding when the certification packet is received from Sun after passing the programmer test, and what the packet itself contains. The packet should be received from Sun within a couple weeks of passing the programmer test. I passed the test on September 7 (see my previous post) and just received it today (September 18), so as a US resident it took about a week and a half. What's inside the packet? A congratulatory letter from Sun, a license agreement to be mailed to Sun for use of the logo, and a "Sun Certified Programmer" pin and certificate.
