Those who want to improve and prove their MySQL knowledge could take advantage of the Discount Value Packages, getting 20% off the price of a live-virtual class plus a certification.
- MySQL Database Administrator Certification Discount Package - MySQL for Database Administrators training course + Oracle Certified Professional MySQL 5.6 Database Administrator certification exam
- MySQL Developer Certification Discount Package - MySQL for Developers training course + Oracle Certified Professional MySQL 5.6 Developer certification exam
Oracle's certifications are a recognized proof of your knowledge and the MySQL certifications are at expert level. Therefore, to pass one of these certification exams, you must do significant preparation.
The MySQL certifications have been created by MySQL engineers and technical consultants with 10 or more years of experience working with MySQL users. So by taking an Oracle MySQL certification, you are measuring yourself against a serious bank of MySQL knowledge.
Here are some steps when preparing to take a MySQL certification:
- Go to the web page for the certification you are preparing for: Oracle Certified Professional MySQL 5.6 Database Administrator or Oracle Certified Professional MySQL 5.6 Developer.
- Click on the Exam Topics tab to see what subjects will be covered in the exam and do a self-assessment to determine your knowledge gaps. These are the areas you need to concentrate on during your preparation.
- Click on the Exam Preparation tab. You will see the recommended training and additional resources such as the MySQL Reference Manual.
- In addition to the Recommended Training course(s), your exam preparation plan must include significant hands-on practice or on-the-job experience performing the tasks described on the Exam Topics tab. Oracle University courses may not cover all exam topics and an integrated exam preparation approach is recommended.
