Hi Friends,

Need one help from you....!!

I completed Oracle 11g PL/SQL exam(1Z0-144) last week, now i am planning to go for DBA certification. I am little confused to choose between 11g & 12c.

For DBA i have to complete below exam to complete OCA & OCP:
11g: 1Z0-051 SQL Fundamental, 1Z0-052 Admin-1, 1Z0-053 Admin-2
12c: 1Z0-061 SQL Fundamental, 1Z0-062 Admin-1, 1Z0-063 Admin-2

In 12c only 1Z0-061 SQL Fundamental is available as of now, so i am planning to go with 11g 1Z0-051 SQL Fundamental.

My confusion is, can i go for OCP in 12c (1Z0-062 Admin-1, 1Z0-063 Admin-2) after completing OCA with 11g.

Please give your suggestion.

The 051 and 061 exams are interchangeable. You can do 051 and 052 and get the 11g DBA OCA, then you'd need to do the 062 and 063 to get the 12c DAB OCP. You are paying for, preparing for and taking an extra exam. If you ultimately want the 12c DBA OCP, then I suggest that you take either the 051 or 061, then take the 062. You can take 062 either in beta (at $50 for the beta) or you can wait for it to be release into production (probably early 2014).

The caveat to this is if you have completed 11g training. If your training is 11g and you do not want to do additional training, I suggest that you pursue the 11g DBA OCP path and then do the upgrade exam to 12c. This way, you won't have to purchase and take additional training. However, if you have not yet completed your training, you can do the 12c training and go for the 12c path.

You can also get more info by asking this question on our Certification Forum http://bit.ly/Lt5vhm.

Hi,

I am planning to do DBA Admin 1 certification now. Should I go for 12c or should I continue with 11g? I have already finished Oracle 11g: SQL Fundamentals 1 certification. Please advise.

This is a decision that is largely personal. I believe that there is some information on this on our Certification Forum http://bit.ly/Lt5vhm.
