Oracle To Begin Certification Exam Delivery Through Pearson VUE
By Harold Green on Sep 15, 2009
Beginning September 25, 2009, Oracle certification exams will be offered through a new test delivery vendor – Pearson VUE -- and will no longer be available through Prometric.
Pearson VUE currently offers certification testing in more than 4,500 test centers worldwide, and we believe it will provide excellent service and global testing coverage for Oracle certification exams.
As of September 13th , candidates are no longer be able to register with Prometric (although candidates may still take their exam at Prometric through September 25th ). Registrations for Oracle exams through Pearson VUE began on September 14th, 2009. Candidates should visit pearsonvue.com/oracle to find more information, register for an exam or locate a testing center in their area. Existing Oracle exam vouchers will continue to be valid as long as they have not expired.
With the change from Prometric to Pearson VUE, we expect no disruption in availability of testing. However candidates should be aware of two system issues that may affect the shipment of your certificate and the timing of your certification. First, maintenance to Oracle’s certification database during the transition period may delay the shipment of your printed certificate up to two or three weeks. Second, our Hands On Course Requirement forms system will be down for maintenance from September 14 – September 28, 2009 while a new streamlined system is brought online. During the downtime, Oracle will work diligently to clear and validate all submitted forms, but no new submissions will be accepted. If you currently have an outstanding form that needs your attention, please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org with the requested information as soon as possible to avoid a delay in receiving your success kit. After September 28, 2009 a new Course Submission Form will be live on the Pearson VUE website.
We are excited about this transition, and are confident that this change will improve our service to you.
