Hi, am interested in getting certified in computer programming, such as VB and C++, can anyone recommend any good online or distance learning courses for this?
Don't know if you can get courses covering specific languages, more likely to be looking at computer science courses or software engineering which will cover several of these languages. I've seen a lot of Java related job openings recently so I reckon any course you do should cover this.
You don't say what level you're at, If you already experienced with programming and just want certification then the Oracle Java Associate certification might be worth considering (www.education.oracle.com), from what I've heard though the exam questions can be quite tricky and it's good to be well studied in Java before forking the cash for the certification.
Hibernia college could be worth consideration, They have a course on computers and information systems offered through distance learning and with a strong focus on java.
