    Good News!

    Right now I'm an Oracle Database 11g Administrator Certified Associate (OCA), I'm planning to prepare an OCP in 11g, Upgrade to 12c OCP, then this blog post is making me another milestone which is preparing:

    1- Oracle Certified Expert, Oracle Database 12c: RAC and Grid Infrastructure Administration

    2- Oracle Certified Expert, Oracle Database 12c: Data Guard Administration

    So, if I'm an OCA in Oracle Database 11g , do i need to prepare an OCP in 11g again, or I can directly prepare OCP in 12c?

    Way to go, Oracle Certifications!

    Congratulations! These are good goals to have. To answer your question, you can move from 11g OCA to 12c OCP by passing exam 1Z0-067 and completing relevant training.

    Dear Brandy.

    Do you have any idea how to attend 12cOCMU Exam?

    The exam schedule does not have a hint where the event takes place.

    I raised a SR in OCP team about the issue. They advised that I should contact with my local OU representative.

    The local OU team did not help either, because they have no information avout the exam itself.

    You might probably have an iside about the schedule update.

    Best Regards.
