If the certification you wish to add is not available in the list, you can suggest it as a certification by clicking on the "Suggest this certification" link so that it goes to the team's queue. In the meantime, may I suggest thaat add it as a portfolio item.
I have tried adding the certification but occurs that they are too old and their names have changed.
The Oracle company had bought the Sun and then changed cert´s name to Oracle.
The old name was: Sun Certified Programmer for the Java Platform
The new: Oracle Certified Java Professional
Does anyone know how to add old certifications?
Only validated certifications can be added under the "Certifications" section of your profile. You can, however, use your portfolio or overview to add certificate you have provided there is no contact information in it. You can find more tips, instructions, and related policies in this Help article.
