Target Audience

This Introduction to Java Programming training course is intended for programmers who are interested in adding Java to their skills.

Attendee Requirements

This Introduction to Java Programming training course assumes some experience in programming for students who have not done any Object Oriented programming before it can be done in 5 days.

If the students have experience in C++ or C# or any other OO language it could be shortened to 4 days.

For students who have little or no programming experience it would be recommended to run a 3 day introduction to OO with Java which will include the topics up to abstract classes and interfaces and then attend the 4 day training.
