I like to take up 1Z0-054 (Oracle Database 11g-Performance Tuning)

Checked the Certification path and found... per-requisite is to complete Oracle 11g DBA OCP.

Again checked the Certification path for Oracle 11g DBA OCP... got to know, I have to take up one of the following (1Z0-007, 1Z0-047, 1Z0-051)
and 1Z0-052.

Since I have done my OCP Advanced PLSQL Programmer, 1Z0-007 is already taken and I have take only 1Z0-052 for OCP. (Am I right ?)

In order to complete DBA OCP... in Certification Path its given to take up one advanced course after that I have to write 1Z0-053.

Is the Advanced Course is mandatory ?

Cant I write the Exam 1Z0-053 directly without taking any advanced course to Complete DBA OCP ?

Please suggest.

You do not have to complete training in order to take an exam, but you will need to complete training in order to obtain the certification.

I had my OCP by taking (1Z0-047,1Z0-147,1Z0-146)in Advanced PLSQL .Can i take 1Z0-054 exam to complete OCE.If no then how can i take this exam by PLSQL track .

There is not really a path from PL/SQL to the Peformance Tuning certification. You can find the certification requirements here As you can see, you'll need to either have the 11g DBA OCP or take a training course.

If you took a training course to prepare for the PL/SQL OCP, it may actually fulfill the training requirement for 11g DBA OCP. You can find courses that fulfill the training requirement here Might be less expensive than taking a new training course for Performance Tuning.

Good luck!

Can I have this exam given without any pre-requisite exams / courses ?

I am a 10g OCP professional.

There is not a pre-requisite to take the exam, but in order to get the certification, you'll need to take additional steps.

In addition to passing the exam, you should either:
1) upgrade your certification to 11g DBA OCP or
2) take the Oracle Database 11g: Performance Tuning DBA Release 2 course (

Good luck!

Do I need to take any Oracle training before taking Oracle certifications?

Posted by abhinav on August 24, 2015 at 10:34 AM PDT #

Training is not required before taking certification exams. However, there are some certifications for which training is required before earning the certification. You'll be able to view the specific requirements for your chose path on our website
