Yes, they all have their strengths and weaknesses, too many to list here, and Google will help you find much of which has already been written on t his.

Which one is optimal?
Again you're asking a question that can't readily be answered. Will C, C++, and Java be around for a while? Undoubtedly. Which will grow more? Who knows.
Which one is more "future proof"?
Probably, and if you progress in this field, you'll likely learn more as well. I think that the order is not important, but rather more important is the drive and dedication of the student.
Would it be optimal to know both? If so, which order?
I don't know that course and so can't speak for it. Myself, I learned Java from the Oracle tutorials and a few used books that I purchased on the cheap. Yeah, the books were a little out of date with regard to Java version, but they taught me the essentials, and the newer stuff I just learned on line.
