Marco:
You can take the SCBCD certification (any SUN certification for that matter) at any exam center spread all over the world. For more information, you can check out the Sun website:
http://www.sun.com/training/certification/

About the Value of the certification:
Although a Java certification (or any certification for that matter) does not guarantee a job offer, it certainly adds a very solid and visible value to your candidacy. It has three main advantages:
1) It proves to the employer that you have knowledge of the subject matter (the reality check).
2) It proves to the employer that you continue learning even after your college degree(s), and employers look at that quality very favorably.
3) There is an intrinsic value that a certification offers: passing an exam and obtaining the certification provides a big boost to your self esteem and confidence which is very helpful in this tough job market.

On the practical side I know a number of Java programmers (my ex-students) who were not getting any interviews, and after they obtained Java certifications and put them on their resumes, they started getting the interviews and eventually landed jobs.
Hope it helps.
Cheers.
