    Question Can anyone help me find a course?

    Hello.

    I'm new here.

    I want to find a certified course specifically for Java... Can anyone help me?

    I know very basic programming, not enough to do much good I'm afraid.

    I did a college course on general IT which involved a tiny amount of programming, but mostly just general IT, but that doesn't help me get into a specialist field...

    After years of being frustrated over what to do with my career and getting very tired of being a sales assistant, I've finally set my heart on becoming a professional Java programmer! I feel very strongly about it. ^_^

    I just... have zero idea of where to go to get educated and certified... T_T

    I'm open to classroom courses in the UK or online courses providing they will get me a UK-acknowledged degree/a real chance at getting a job in Java programming.

    I thought there would be many people on here who have been in or are in a Java course, or just happen to know about Java courses.

    I've looked at online courses, but don't feel confident about paying for them... I know nothing of my options for one, and two, I don't want to get swindled by bad quality or fake courses... x.x

    If anyone could point me in the right direction I'd be very greatful. ^_^


    I'm 24 and live in Cheshire, but I'm willing to relocate to student housing for a good course.

    Right now I'm trying to self-teach myself to get an edge in class, but it's going slowly. ._.


    Any help would be amazing! c':

    Why don't you start with: The Java™ Tutorials. These are the Sun/Oracle Java tutorials and everybody wanting to be at least half proficient in Java needs to study them. They're a great start for any further certification (but don't expect too much from the certifications though, they're not a Holy Grail).

    kind regards,

    Jos
