Marc Schröder, a student of the vocational school Berufsschule Freising in Munich, earned the Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer certification in Spring 2018. In a chat with Oracle Academy program manager Britta Wolf, Marc shared his testing experience, his motivation, and his future plans around certification.
Marc always had a passion for computers, so the leap to earning certification while gaining his education was an easy one. Showing his dedication to his craft, Marc spent 6 months of intensive study for his first certification exam, while still attending school and working. Presenting his certification exam project to a large audience at a graduation school event in July, earned Marc a large round of applause.
". . . certification was a good opportunity for me to consolidate and prove my knowledge. The Oracle certificate was a great addition to our Java lessons in vocational school."
