Four D50 Students Pass the Oracle Certified Associate (OCA), Java Programmer Exam


Four District 50 students passed the  Oracle Certified Associate (OCA), Java Programmer exam in the fall of 2018.  The OCA exam is designed for people with technical backgrounds who have been working in a professional capacity.  It is an impressive accomplishment that these students passed the OCA exam without professional experience.  Emerald High School is an Institutional Member of Oracle Academy.  In addition to their coursework in Oracle Academy, the students participated in dual enrollment courses offered through Piedmont Technical College.  They took Introduction to Java Programming (CPT 236) and Advanced Java Programming (CPT 237).
