Hi, I believe in previous years it was possible to write some of the exams at Openworld. Are there any plans this year?

Hi Dave - We will not be doing onsite testing or exam cram this year, however, we will continue to operate the Oracle Certification Program lounge in Moscone South (room 250), and we have added two certification-related Power Sessions. We have more info on Oracle Certification & OpenWorld on this post http://bit.ly/ib1r6. Stop by so we can meet you!

Hi, all of the lower level tests (OCA, OCP etc) can be bought by several companies online. Both questions and answers. This makes the certifications worthless. It would be quite easy for Oracle to stop this. The way it is now we don't look at certifications any longer. Do you have any comment on this? Is Oracle going to do anything to make their certifications meaningfull? Kind regards, Staffan

Hi Staffan - although I obviously can't share the details of it, I can say that we are quite excited about recent upgrades to the Oracle Certification Program that aggressively deal with and prosecute illegal exam activity.

Hey, No on-site exams...and no testing discount for attending Oracle Open-World? I had been planning to get 11g certified this year, this is a real bummer! ACS OCP 8i,9i,10g

No OCP Exams in Open world really sad.Please bring it back.
