First-hand Report about the Certification „SOA Certified Professional“ (SOACP) of soaschool.com

Posted in Cloud, IT Certifications, SOA on February 1st, 2011 by Kai Wähner

This article is a first-hand report about preparing for the SOACP certification and passing the exam. I decided to do this certification after I met Thomas Erl at the SOA Symposium 2010 in Berlin, Germany (see this older blog). I will tell you, why I like this certification and why (in my opinion) it makes a lot of sense. But I will also criticize some small details.

SOA / Cloud Certification of „soaschool.com“ (SOACP) by Thomas Erl or Sun / Oracle Java Enterprise (JEE) Certification?

Which one should I do?

What IT certification should I do next? This is what I wondered within the last weeks, after I passed the SCJP 6 successfully some months ago. I surfed the internet a lot to find information about possible IT certifications.

How to pass the SCJP 6

Yesterday I passed the test for “Sun Certified Java Programmer (SCJP 6)” with 83 percent. Here are my experiences about doing the certification and the hints I can give you.

What should you keep in mind before starting your preparation for the exam?

– The preparation is a lot more time-consuming than I thought, also for experienced java developers.

You really improve your programming skills a lot (As many other people, I doubted this fact when I started learning for the exam and looking at these tricky, non-practical code snippets).
