Time To Consider Getting Your Oracle Certification?

0229.jpg

Hi Everyone,

I recently read an interesting study from Global Knowledge titled: 2010 IT Skills and Salary Report which contains a lot of great information related to IT worker trends including roles, required skills, demographics, salaries and more. I had to dig a little bit, but the report indicates that certification is valued by the majority of managers and those become certified, which underscores the results of our own surveys that show how certification is valued by IT workers, their employers and their customers.

Additionally, if you look a little closer you will also find average salaries for those who are Oracle certified. Their salary figures are impressive and are among the top salaries of the certifications listed.

If you have ever considered becoming certified or are in the process of becoming certified, I encourage you to look at the Global Knowledge study. With an ever-increasing suite of Oracle certifications available to you, there may be something within our certification offerings that will help you increase your skills, build your career, and gain additional credibility.

Thank you,

Very interesting survey results. I had referenced a few other survey results in my presentation - 10 Steps to Success: Tips and Advice for Oracle Certification (Link to download: http://slidesha.re/awYOa2) The survey results point to a positive correlation with individuals getting higher salary with certification.

Indeed- as I look for work, I am glad that I passed most of the Oracle exams to become certified in Oracle EBS, core DBA, RAC, and Fusion Middleware. Hopefully, potential employers and clients will see the added value of my certifications, books and experience so that I may continue to work in the technical field.

As a software application developer, I have been considering Oracle certification for a while to enhance my skill set. Unfortunately I don't have access to a commercial Oracle installation, and would like to use a free version of Oracle Express during my studies. The latest OCA courses largely focus on Oracle 11g, and it would appear that there is no free 11g database available yet. Could anyone please advise me whether it would be possible and practical to prepare for the 1Z0-051 Oracle Database 11g: SQL Fundamentals I and 1Z0-052 Oracle Database 11g: Administration I exams using an Oracle Express 10g database instance, while accompanied by the relevant Oracle 11g study material?
