Be Sure You're Purchasing A Valid Oracle Certification Voucher

Did you know that purchasing vouchers from a non-authorized outlet is fraud? We recently revoked several exam scores as we tracked down counterfeit vouchers that had been used to purchase exams.

Use caution - you may not even be a willing or knowing party to the fraud. Test takers are often surprised to discover that their vouchers are not valid.

Certification Integrity and Cheating

The Oracle Certification program is something that we are proud of. We invest many many hours and numerous resources carefully crafting the focus and contents of our exams to be sure that they accurately and fairly measure the skills needed to master our technologies. We also invest in securing the exams to help ensure that scores closely reflect abilities. That is why when we learn of any persons or groups attempting fraud against the community and our program, we take it seriously.

We continue in our efforts to pursue and prosecute security incidents such as cheating or attempting to cheat at our testing centers, providing test questions to other users, proxy testing, using cheating materials to prepare for the exam, and fabricating score reports. Oracle takes various actions against cheaters including nullifying exam results, de-certifying candidates, and banning candidates from further Oracle testing.

We have previously posted a series where we discuss some information about cheating, who it hurts, and who it really benefits, and so you'll see links to the series below.

If you become aware of a cheating incident, please let us know. Because of security measures, we obviously cannot disclose our resulting actions; but rest assured - we do investigate these claims and respond accordingly. We are committed to preserving the integrity of your certifications and our program, and we genuinely appreciate your involvement.
