Two Exams To Retire for Oracle 8 and 8i DBA Certification Tracks

Two Exams To Retire for Oracle 8 and 8i DBA Certification TracksEffective September 25, 2009, the "Oracle8: New Features for Administrators" exam (1Z0-010) and the "Oracle8i: New Features for Administrators" exam (1Z0-020) will be retired.

Exam 1Z0-010 is part of the upgrade path for Oracle 7.3 DBAs to upgrade to version 8. Exam 1Z0-020 is part of the upgrade path for Oracle 8 DBAs to upgrade to version 8i. These two exams may be taken through September 25, 2009 by registering at Prometric.

Oracle7.3 and Oracle8 DBA OCPs will continue to have the option to upgrade to version Oracle9i OCP by taking exam 1Z0-035 ("Oracle9i DBA New Features for Oracle7.3 and Oracle8 OCPs").

CREDENTIAL VALIDITY
Please note that that the credentials remains valid indefinitely for those holding the Oracle8 and/or 8i DBA OCP certification. This retirement therefore has no effect on those who complete the certification requirements before September 25, 2009.

Comments:

I read this as having slight ambiguity as to whether an exam taken on 25th september will be accepted. Some parts imply an exam on 25th september will be accepted, others imply completion must be before 25th september. Regardless I think I would advise any candidates for this exam, (if there is in fact anyone who is affected) that they would be best advised to schedule a couple of days prior to 25th september in case there is a last minute issue at the test centre).

Hi Paul, I have a question around Oracle 11g Database OCP Certification examinations. I am unable to locate 1Z0-053 exam available for registration from Prometric website, here in the UK, whereas according to OU portal (education.oracle.com), this is available for registration. Any clues ? Regards, Rakesh

Hi Rakesh – thanks for checking with us and sorry to alarm. That exam was just taken out of beta and is about to be released in live production (22 Sep 2009, I believe). I'll be announcing more details on it as we get the exact date confirmed. Looking forward to having you onboard and "Oracle Certified!"

I would imagine 1z0-053 with be a very popular examination. Releasing it on 22-sep-2009 might cause a swamp of examination takes on the last few days at prometric which may not be what you want. Also introducing it on the first day (or first couple of days) of switch to a new provider might cause a lot of issues if anything goes wrong.

Hi Paul, I have a question related to my Oracle 8.0 Certification (DBA). I passed my Oracle 8.0 certification back in year 2002 and after that i didn't upgrade my certifcation so my question is which exams i have to take to upgrade my certification to 11g? Best Regards, Mohammad.
