Update: Oracle Database 11g OCM Exam

I want to provide a brief update on the 11g OCM (full two-day exam). If you've been waiting to become an Oracle Database 11g Certified Master, you'll be pleased to hear that we are starting our alpha testing now. This is not a public alpha, so you can't get involved quite yet; however we expect the production exam to become available to the public soon (possibly here in October). At that time, we will release the exam to the Oracle University regional teams, who can then schedule public OCM exam sessions locally.

So if you would like to sit for the 11g OCM exam, be sure to let your local Oracle University rep know so they can consider adding it to the schedule. You can find your local rep's contact information by visiting the Oracle University homepage. From this page, you can either: (1) register for an event (if one is scheduled), or (2) let your rep know that you would like to take the test. Additionally, you can begin your study and/or preparation by visiting the Oracle Database 11g Certified Master track page .

The Oracle Certified Master credential is one of the most recognized advanced database credentials in the IT industry. OCMs are highly valued by their employers and customers and are well-known for their advanced capabilities and knowledge. If you are a senior-level Oracle DBA, I invite you to consider now becoming an Oracle Certified Master DBA.

Thank you,



Hi, could someone at Oracle look at the http://www.oracle.com/technology/ocm/index.html url? Some sitebuilder work might be required. I don't want to upload my OCM profile, until it has been fixed and the site look normal. Thanks, Istvan

Hi Istvan, Yes, this issue has been around for a quite while now. I have just been informed (last week) that they were having internal issues, affecting e.g. submitting the OCM profiles, which they have already solved as well as the OCM profile page was being rebuilt and moved from OTN to the Oracle Certification Program site. Having said that there is no information on how long it will take although they indicated at least one more week. Once the migration completes the rendering issue should be eliminated and you might want to submit your profile. HTH,Regards, Jozsef
