Unique in design

The Java Programmer Academy consists of three modules that logically follow one another and which prepare for exams. The modules are given based on the open schedule, which means that students from different companies will participate in the course. The purpose of the Academy is that you will digest the knowledge gained in each module through self-study and by practical experience. After completion of the module, you will be provided with case studies to exercise what you have learned and put it into practice. Before doing the real exams you get the chance to test your knowledge by doing mock exams. After passing the exams you obtain the corresponding certification.

Lead time

The Java Programmer Academy is given six times a year and consists of a total of 11 training days in 2 months. An Academy starts every two months. In general, it is not advisable in view of the difficulty of the subject matter to follow the modules in quick succession. Rather, it is obvious to do the associated exam after a module and then one or two months later do the next modules with their corresponding examination. A lead time of six months is not unusual, but with a high level of knowledge and learning it can also be done faster.


What do you learn

After successful completion of the Java Programmer Academy you can build standalone applications, are able to build Java database applications using JDBC and SQL queries, and apply Java concurrency and Java networking in applications. During the courses you will learn to work with the Eclipse IDE.


After various modules you will get exercises or case that applies to what is taught in the module. The cases relate to practical examples of software development and carry a business nature. The solutions of the exercises or the case is handed out to you after some time.



Following modules prior to one of the tests for a Java certificate you will get a test that prepares for the exam. The test is representative of the exam. On the basis of the tests you will get an impression if you have enough knowledge to pass the exam. You will get 2 tests per exam.


During the Academy there are two exams namely the Java Programmers Exam step1 and Java Programmers Exam step 2. The exams consist for the most part of multiple choice questions. After passing the exams the associated certification is obtained.
