Beta Opportunity Soon To Close for "Oracle Linux 5&6 System Administrator" (OCA) Certification Exam (1Z1-100)

Brandye Barrington
Sr. Program Manager

The beta period will soon be closing for the Oracle Linux 5 and 6 System Administration (Exam 1Z1-100). This is your last opportunity to take the certification exam at the greatly discounted rate of $50 USD, as well as be one of the first to hold this new certification.

The exam, leads to the  Oracle Certified Associate, Oracle Linux 5 and 6 System Administrator (OCA) certification. This certification is designed to give you a solid foundation of knowledge to implement and administer the Oracle Linux Operating System. Oracle Linux's Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel delivers extreme performance, advanced scalability and reliability for enterprise applications.  Oracle Linux combines the latest innovations in Linux with Oracle-specific capabilities such as dynamic tracing and performance optimization with Dtrace, and no-downtime patching with Ksplice.

The Oracle Linux System Administration course is highly recommended, as it provides a strong foundation for an Oracle Linux System Administrator. It also teaches candidates how to install Oracle Linux and provides an understanding of the benefits of Oracle's Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK).

You can get all preparation details, including exam objectives, number of questions, time allotments, and pricing on the Oracle Certification website.

    I think this is going to be a popular certification. The Linux 6 Essentials exam was interesting. If I wasn't so pressed for time right now, I might try the beta. As it is, I'll have to wait for the production exam.

    Will there be an Oracle Press certification study guide for the new exams?

    I'm not sure about an Oracle Press guide. You can check with them http://bit.ly/URFuwt.

    You could also keep an eye on Matthew Morris's blog http://www.oraclecertificationprep.com, he also writes study guides.
