At pearsonvue i can only choose this exam (1Z0-807) as "proctored". Is this ok?

Btw, what does that mean in detail? Will there be someone sent by Oracle?

Hi Bernd,
This exam - 807 - is only available as a proctored exam. You will need to go to the test center to take this exam, and it will be monitored by a proctor.

Is there any prerequisite for exam 1Z0-807? What if I don't want to do the training?
Can I earn title 'Enterprise Architect' without training with following steps only?

Did I understand it correctly, if I already posses the old "SCEA 5" certificate, the 1Z0-807 would be sufficient to get the "Oracle Certified Master Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect" certificate?

Thanks and BR

Yes, if you have an earlier version of the Sun Certified Enterprise Architect, you can upgrade to the EE6 version with only the 807 exam.

You should be sure that you have your CertView account authenticated. You want to be sure that your 807 exam is taken under the same testing ID as you earlier certification.

1. Go to and create a web account if you have not done so already.
a. Be sure to enter your Prometric testing ID
b. If, for any reason, Pearson issues you a new Oracle Testing ID, contact them immediately to get the IDs merged -
2. Go to and authenticate your account using the email address and Oracle testing ID from your Pearson VUE profile.
a. You will need to have an Oracle web account to authenticate your CertView account. You will have the option to create one, if you do not already have one, at
b. In CertView, you should be able to see your prior certification.

So it is not mandatory to have a certification on java SE prior taking this exam?

As i can remember when this was under Sun it was required to at least have the SCJP exam. So there is no such type of a dependency in this. Am i correct?


Posted by guest on September 13, 2013 at 09:12 PM PDT #

OCJP or SCJP certification is not required to obtain this certification. However, training is required.

Hi Team,

I have one question regarding the Mandatory course requirement. There are multiple courses and all courses have varied price ranges. So I believe we can take up any course. For example I plan for OOAD and UML which costs around 38000. Could you please let me know if this is fine or we should take coursed worth, say an X amount mandatorily. Please let me know.


Posted by guest on November 15, 2013 at 11:35 PM PST #

There is no dollar requirement for a course. The training requirement is about your skills and knowledge and not about the amount of money you spend. I should however, point out that the SSCD training does not fulfill the training requirement. You will need to take the course in-class, as an online virtual class, or as a training on demand class.

If I passed only IZO-807, and not complete other step, Will I get any certificate for passing IZO-807?


Posted by Ketan on November 21, 2013 at 11:32 AM PST #

The 807 exam by itself does not result in any certification. You will need to complete the certification requirements.

Thanks Barrington,

Can you please suggest some books to be prepared for IZO 807?

Also earlier version of SCEA books content is fine or not for preparing this exam?


Posted by guest on December 01, 2013 at 06:10 PM PST #

Hi Ketan,
I would suggest you look at Oracle Press for relevant books. As far as earlier books, I'm not sure I would recommend that. I'd suggest that you 1) compare exam topics to topics in the book and 2) maybe ask this question on our Oracle Certification Forum

Does it matter if the training was taken 2 years back? I had an architect training from Oracle done in 2012. does it count?

Posted by Sunil Krishnan on February 18, 2014 at 08:09 PM PST #

Hi Suni,
The best way to determine if your training will count is to check with Oracle Certification Support

Hi , Will I be able to register for the exam without purchasing the courses ? If I clear the exams I can purchase the courses and complete the requirement. Would that reverse order work ?

Posted by Raj on March 09, 2014 at 10:28 PM PDT #

You can complete the certification steps in any order. You do not need to complete the training prior to taking the exam(s). However, the training usually helps you on the exam.

Is it mandatory to undertake training from Oracle University? I have registered Java Design Patters training from Learning Tree International.
Will this qualify for completion of Step 1?

Posted by Sks on April 25, 2014 at 10:23 AM PDT #

For certification paths that require trianing like this one, training must be completed through Oracle University or an Oracle University training partner. You can find these training locations here

Is it Java Design Patterns or Java EE Design Paterns please?

Posted by Java training in chennai on June 01, 2014 at 11:37 PM PDT #

I believe the course is Java Design Patterns, but I can't be totally sure that this is the course offered by the poster's training center.

I would like to take the required training for 1Z0-807 in another country from an Oracle approved delivery partner.

Does it make any difference? I am not sure if I can do the trainining in one country and then continue with the exams in another.

Posted by Dirk on August 24, 2014 at 11:17 PM PDT #

It does not matter where you take training and exams. Just be sure that you complete all your requirements under the same Oracle Testing ID.

If some one has Oracle certified Expert or developer level certification in java . Does he/she still have to go through the initial courses? Or Can they bypass initial courses, or will they be exempted from some courses ? please reply

Posted by Harsha on December 02, 2014 at 05:43 AM PST #

Hi Harsha,
For the OCA, OCP, and OCE level Java certifications training is not required. However, training is required for the OCM level certifications.
