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.
