FAQ: How Do I Change My Name On My Certificate?

0399C1.jpg
Your Oracle Certificate is printed with the name that is provided in your Pearson VUE profile. This name should match the government-issued ID that you presented when you took your test at the testing center. For this reason, there should rarely be a need to change your name on your Oracle Certification certificate.

If you do however find yourself in the position that your name is incorrect on your Oracle certificate, you should:

If your name is correct in your Pearson VUE profile AND in your CertView account, there may have been an issue with the printing of your certificate. Please contact  Oracle Certification Support and request a reshipment of the certificate, noting that your name was entered incorrectly on the original certificate you received.

If your name is NOT correct in your Pearson VUE profile, or if you have changed your name since you took the Oracle Certification exams, you should:

  • Contact Pearson VUE at www.pearsonvue.com/oracle/contact. Indicate that you need to change your name in your Pearson VUE profile and why it needs to be changed.
  • Provide a copy of your government document with the correct name, or proof of name change and Pearson VUE will assist with getting your name changed.

Once you have received confirmation from Pearson VUE that your name has been changed in their files, please allow 48 hours for the update to reach your CertView account.

  • Once you have verified that your name is now correct in CertView, please contact Oracle Certification Support and request a reshipment of your certificate.
  • If your name is correct in your Pearson VUE profile, but is not correct in your CertView profile, please contact Oracle Certification Support for assistance.

Dear Sir/Madam,

My full name is Mritunjay Kumar Saw but in Pearson VUE profile it is displayed as mritunjay k saw. Is it necessary to change my name to avoid name confliction in the future.

Regards,
Mritunjay Kumar Saw

Posted by Mritunjay Kumar Saw on December 22, 2011 at 08:32 PM PST #

Mritunjay,
Your Pearson VUE profile contains your name exactly as it was entered at the time you registered for your exam. The only difference is that the registration system may actually shorten the middle name to a middle initial. It is best to have the name capitalized correctly. Please contact Pearson VUE pearsonvue.com/oracle/contact for assistance with this issue.

Posted by Ahmed Ali Mansour on February 01, 2012 at 08:42 AM PST #

Hi Ahmed,
I asked Pearson VUE about this and here is there response:

"The candidate should contact Pearson VUE (pearsonvue.com/oracle/contact) to have his name updated in his profile. He will be asked for government issued ID before the update is made. He should make the update as soon as possible to avoid any potential issues the next time he wants to sit for an exam."

Posted by THAN SINGH on March 26, 2012 at 10:32 PM PDT #

Hi Than,
You may not change your name on your certificate to a name that is not on your government issued ID. If you have officially changed your name, you can follow the steps above to change your name in your Pearson VUE profile and then request for your certificate to be re-issued. If your nick name - Avinash Rajpoot is not on your government-issued ID, then we will not be able to print that on your certificate.

Hello Brandye,
My fully name is Michael Bonaparte Demel and the same is registered in Pearson vue. But in the hardcopy certificate which I received, the middle name is omitted and I have got Michael Demel only. Since I have my full name in my government ID I want the certificate reissued with original name. Please advice

Posted by Michael on August 11, 2012 at 03:42 AM PDT #

Hi Michael,
Unfortunately, this is a limitation of the system. When a name is transferred to the Oracle Database, the middle name is removed. This is an issue that we are working in fixing.

In the mean time, there is a work around. I'd contact Pearson VUE by phone and explain the situation. Then ask them to update your name so that you enter your first name and middle name into the First Name Field. Leave the Middle Name field blank and enter your last name into the Last Name Field. Then contact Oracle Certification Support http://bit.ly/KMsuH3 and ask for a new certificate. Sorry for the inconvenience.

sir,

what should i do please help me sir

Posted by RAKHI on May 11, 2013 at 06:36 AM PDT #

Rakhi,
I'm not exactly sure what your question is. Have you taken an exam and received an Oracle certificate in a different name? Or are you asking which name to use to register for your exam?

If you are asking which name to use for your exam, you'll need to use the name as it is printed on your government issued ID that you will present when you take the exam. You will need two forms of ID. One must be a government-issued photo ID and both IDs must contain your signature.

Hi,

My name is Rini Treasa Sebastian. I have recently completed 1Z0-851: Java Standard Edition 6 Programmer Certified Professional Exam.
I have registered in PearsonVue wth all the names field i.e FistName ,MiddleName and LastName. But found that in Certview only my FirstName and LastName is mentioned. Will I be getting the certficate hardcopy with the FirstName and LastName alone?? What procedures should I do to get the certificate with my Full Name(FirstName, MiddleName and LastName)?

Rini Treasa Sebastian

hi sir,
my name in birth cerificate GSK CHANDRAKANTH.
its my correct name.
but in SSC/TENTH it is as GSK CHANDRAKANT.
now a letter H should be added at last of my name on the tenth class certificate. so please tell me the procedure to be done in the tenth board hyderabad.

or

a paper add or a notary is enough???

Posted by guest on August 27, 2013 at 02:20 AM PDT #

Hi Rini,
This is a bug with the way that the Pearson system 'talks' to the CertView database. You will need to go to pearsonvue.com/oracle and update your name in your Pearson VUE account. In the First Name field, enter your first name and your middle name 'Rini Treasa' and you can leave the Middle Name field blank (empty). Your certificate has likely already been processed, so after updating your name, submit a request to the Oracle Certification Support team http://bit.ly/KMsuH3 and request an updated certificate with the correct name. Sorry for the confusion.

Hi GSK CHANDRAKANTH,
You will need to call Pearson VUE (pearsonvue.com/oracle/contact) and ask them the best way to get this issue sorted out.

Brandye Barrington

Hi Sir/Madam,
I had a issue with my name when i registered with Pearson vue where i did not provide the full name(for example i have 5 parts in my name first two name in my full name is generally denoted by initials so i only provided the rest as first name, middle name and last name). But after that i found out that the name should be exactly as in my driver's license or any other ID.When i requested for a correction of name with a copy of my driver's license, since the change required is significant they reached me again with a request for a "legal name change document" which is I'm confused about. Can you tell me what kind of document is this. And since this is a situation where i failed to provide my correct name and not a situation where i legally changed my name after the registering with Pearson vue, I'm a bit confused. And I'd appreciate if you can guide me to a place where i can find a sample document that they are requesting me to send.

Thanks in advance

Posted by Bandara on February 03, 2014 at 11:42 PM PST #

Hmm, this is an interesting situation, Bandara. Did you let Pearson know that you did not change your name, that you simple entered it incorrectly? If you have clearly explained to them that you did not change your name, and they are still asking for a name change doc, I can escalate to our account manager. Please provide an incident number so that she can find the history of the issue in their records.

Thanks,

Posted by gowri k acharya on March 07, 2014 at 12:34 PM PST #

Gowri,
You should follow the steps outlined in the blog post above to change your name. You will need to change the name in your Pearson VUE profile and it will be uploaded to the Oracle Certification Database. Once your name is updated, you should see the new name on the eCertificates available for download in CertView (certview.oracle.com).

I'm not sure how long the process will take with Pearson VUE. When you contact them with the name-change documentation, you can ask them how long it should take.

Brandye Barrington
