Just let you know self study training DOES NOT fulfill the mandatory training requirement.

Yes. The training type that fulfill the requirement are:
intructor-led, online, live web classes, live virtual classes, training on demand and learning subscriptions

Hi Caio Bessa,

Since that I am in the same your situation to choice a mandatory course to take to finish the process of the Certification. Can I know what course did you chose?
I am looking for an inspiration and the way to save as much as possible money

Regards,
Mimmo

Hehe if you look at all those options, instruction-led will definitely be the most expensive.

LWC and LVC and TOD seems to be the choices. Subscriptions ... depends on you.

Most of the people I know take the cheapest one that is on the approved list having chosen the training method.

Hi K. Tsang,

Indeed I saw that the majority of the person take the Java EE 7: New Features course that it is the cheapest one. I think that I will take the Object-Oriented Analysis and Design Using UML, this is a little bit more expensive but

1)With the possibility of the Training On Demand it leaves me free to spend 2 days to be busy with the on line course in impossible time for person that live in Europe;
2)For a person that he would want to become an Architect it could have more sense this course that focus on the whole cycle of a project instead of the course Java EE 7: New Features that it is, at least I think, more oriented to the persons that have developer attitude.


What is your thought?

Regards,
Mimmo

Well since you already passed part 1, suggesting you to take "Architect Enterprise App with Java EE" is somewhat dumb. Or is it?

Learning UML for part 2 is one thing, learning it for real is another. Did you know that UML course doesn't teach UML2 but UML1.4? I just notice that.

My thoughts is if know nothing about UML then go for the UML course despite it covers 1.4. However going through the book UML Distilled 3e by Martin Fowler and the help of uml-diagrams.org will cover your assignment needs.

If you have NOT started part 2, take on something challenging and useful even if it's Java 8 fundamentals

Hi K. Tsang,

are you sure that they cover 1.4? Following the link http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=609&get_params=dc61808 it seems that they cover the version 2.2.

However I have already achieved the certification. I have chosen this course instead of Java 8 fundamentals because in my real life I am already doing already enough experience with Java 8 but I know that I have some lacuna on Arhcitect practice and for this I have chosen the Object-Oriented Analysis and Design Using UML. What do you think in regard to this?

The description mentions v2.2 but the Course Topic says v1.4

Or if you expand the view schedule it also say 1.4

Which version they use .... who knows?
