The Fundamentals of the Java Programming Language course provides students with an excellent choice for beginning to learn programming using the Java programming language. This course is intended for students with little or no programming experience. The course teaches the significance of object-oriented programming, the keywords and constructs of the Java programming language, and the steps required to create simple Java technology programs. Students taking this course can receive a solid basis in the Java programming language upon which to base continued work and training. The course features the Java Platform, Standard Edition 6 (Java SE 6) platform, and uses the Java SE Development Kit 6 (JDK 6) product.


Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of Java technology, the Java programming language, and the product life cycle
  • Use various Java programming language constructs to create several Java technology applications
  • Use decision and looping constructs and methods to dictate program flow
  • Implement intermediate Java technology programming and object-oriented (OO) concepts in Java technology programs.

Target Audience

Who Should Attend:

Students who can benefit from this course are individuals who have basic mathematical, logical, and analytical problem-solving skills and who want to begin learning the Java programming language. This includes technical writers, web developers, technical managers, and individuals with a technical, non-programming background, such as system administrators. This course is also appropriate for novice programmers and those programmers who prefer to start learning the Java programming language at an introductory level. However, individuals are encouraged to have had some programming experience, whether with a scripting language, such as Perl, or a third-generation language (such as Basic or C) prior to attending this course.
