COVID-19 and What This Means for Your Oracle Certification Exam Voucher

Eva Chase
Global, Sr. Marketing Manager

The Oracle Certification Program cares about the safety, health and well-being of our community.  This includes those who hold an Oracle Certified credential and those who are pursuing any of our certifications.

We understand that getting to a test center in this challenging time may not be possible.  

To support eliminating the risk of infection, alleviating uncertainty and any loss of your certification test attempt we hope this information is helpful in providing direction and next steps.

Stay well.

  • Pearson VUE test centers closed beginning in China early February. Since then, test center guidelines and restrictions have cascaded to other countries heavily affected by the virus.

    If already scheduled an exam to take in Test Center, Could I reschedule and change to take it in my own location ?

    Thank you.

    Hi Christian,
    The short answer is 'yes.' HOW you'll go about this actually depends on how you paid for the exam.

    If you registered for the exam:
    - through a learning subscription that has not yet expired
    - using a voucher that has not yet expired
    - paying with a credit card

    You can simply cancel the exam and funds will be released for you to use to schedule the new exam appointment online.

    If you registered through a learning subscription and your learning subscription is now expired - contact the Oracle Certification support team and they will assist.


    If you registered with a voucher that has now expired, contact pearsonvue.com/oracle/contact and they will be able to assist.

    I hope this helps.

    I have already scheduled an exam a in Test Center, but I want to take exam at my own location due to Covid risks. How can I proceed?
