Upgrade Your Certification to 12c

Oracle Database Administrator Certified Professionals (OCP) can upgrade to the ground-breaking new Oracle Database 12c Administrator Certified Professional certification by taking a single exam, "Upgrade to Oracle Database 12c" (1Z1-060). This is an opportunity for candidates certified on the very early Oracle7.3, Oracle8, Oracle8i, and Oracle9i Databases, as well as the more current Oracle Database 10g and 11g to upgrade to the latest version with only one exam.

While training is not mandatory for candidates to upgrade their certifications, the Oracle Database 12c: New Features for Administrators training course is highly recommended to help prepare for the exam, as it highlights an array of advanced subjects and technologies, such as the new concept of multitenant architecture, its benefits and usage.

With Oracle Database 12c, candidates will experience the benefits of an Oracle Database that is re-engineered for Cloud computing. Multitenant architecture brings enterprises unprecedented hardware and software efficiencies, performance and manageability benefits, and fast and efficient Cloud provisioning. Oracle Database 12c certifications emphasize the full set of skills that DBAs need in today's competitive marketplace.

Looking for oracle 12c (1z0-060) database upgrade exam guide.

Posted by guest on October 18, 2013 at 02:14 PM PDT #

There is not likely an exam guide for this exam yet, since the production version of the exam is not yet released. Authors do not yet know which topics will be included on the exam, so they would not be sure which topics to include in the guides yet.

Hi Everyon
Is the 1Z1-060 examen still available?

I've check recently the Oracle Page and the only certification path is the OCA-OCP 12c
There is no Upgrade Path.

Hope you can help me

The 1Z0-060 upgrade exam is still available. You can go to http://bit.ly/Kx7iac and select the 'upgrade' tab. There you will see the upgrade paths.

To upgrade from 8i OCP to 12c OCP, you will need to pass the exam 1Z0-060.

Mike, you wil also need to pass exam 1Z0-060 to upgrade from 11g OCP to 12c OCP.

Posted by Muhib on February 05, 2015 at 10:06 PM PST #

If you are a 10g DBA OCA, you can upgrade to 12c DBA OCP by passing exam 067 and completing a 12c training class.

Dear Sir,

I am presently a 9i DBA OCP. I would like to upgrade to 12c DBA OCP to safeguard my investment. Does it mean that I just need to take 1Z0-060? Thanks for your confirmation.

Posted by BT on March 01, 2015 at 03:30 AM PST #

Yes - you only need to pass exam 060. Good luck with your exam!

If you are an OCM in 11g and you do the 1z0-060 exam..will you still be a master in 12c?. thanks folk.

Posted by DUNCAN OCHIENG on March 06, 2015 at 11:05 PM PST #

Sir,

Is May 1, 2015 the deadline to take 1Z0-060 for 9i DBA OCP?

Thanks in advance

Posted by YI on March 08, 2015 at 03:28 PM PDT #

Hi Duncan,
The 1Z0-060 exam will not upgrade your OCM certification. There will be an OCM upgrade exam released a little later this year.

When you pass the OCM upgrade exam, your OCP certification will be automatically upgraded, so you can take the 060 exam if you like to upgrade your OCP, or you can wait for the OCM upgrade exam and upgrade both OCP and OCM with the same exam.

Regards,
Brandye Barrington

Posted by Brandye Barrington on March 09, 2015 at 01:26 PM PDT #

Hi Yi,
The deadline to upgrade your 9i DBA OCP to 12c via the 060 exam is November 1, 2015.

Hi,

I am Oracle Database Administrator OCP Can I appear for 1Z0-060 now and acquire 12C OCP ? Or is My certification expired and have to retake the exam?

What should I exactly do to keep my certification Active ?

Posted by Atif Iqbal on March 11, 2015 at 04:29 AM PDT #

Hi Atif,
If you hold the Oracle DBA OCP certification - any version - you are eligible to take the 060 exam and upgrade to 12c DBA OCP now.

Hi,

I have completed my 10g OCA, OCP and 11g [Oracle Database 11g: New Features for Administrators - 1z0-050].

What would be the best suggestion to go for next level of exam in ORACLE?

Regards,
Sanjay G

Posted by sanjay on March 16, 2015 at 03:21 AM PDT #

Sanjay,
I would suggest that you first upgrade to Oracle Database 12c OCP by passing exam 1Z0-060 http://bit.ly/1O0zBet.

After that, there are several Expert-level exams that are being released this year that you may be interested in. Exams on Performance Management and Tuning, RAC, and Data Guard. The Performance Management and Tuning exam is currently in beta http://bit.ly/1Frileh.

Another option would be to continue on to 11g Database OCM http://bit.ly/1Frileh and then upgrade to 12c Database OCM when the upgrade exam is available.

There are also a couple of 11g Oracle Certified Expert options:
11g RAC Expert - http://bit.ly/1qs4hb4
11g Performance Tuning - http://bit.ly/1wRnriF

As you can see, you have lots of options. Good luck with picking a path from here!

Dear Sir/Madam,
I am 8i OCP and have been teaching almost all the version of oracle for the last 15 years, which includes Oracle 11G for the last 3 years. Please advice me if i can appear directly for Oracle 12C exam.
Please advice me through email either i can appear directly for 12C exam and i need to get approval from my company for the same.
My Testing ID is I00120608.

Sincere regards
Shahid Sheikh

Posted by Shahid Sheikh on March 21, 2015 at 09:13 PM PDT #

Shahid,
If you hold the 8i OCP, then you can move directly to 12c OCP by passing exam 1Z0-060. Be sure when you create your Pearson VUE web account that you use your existing Testing ID. If Pearson assigns you a new ID, you will need to have the 2 IDs merged. I would suggest contact Pearson VUE for assistance with account set up to avoid issues and avoid delays in receiving your upgraded certification.

pearsonvue.com/oracle

After you've created your Pearson VUE web account, you'll need to authenticate your account at certview.oracle.com. I would suggest doing this as soon as you can - wait at least one hour after creating the Pearson VUE account. CertView is where you will access your exam score, so I would recommend authenticating and signing in well before your exam so that you have time to work out any authentication issues that may appear.

Hello,

I searched for 1z0 060 exam guide but could not get it.
Would you please suggest URL from where I can refer to it.

Posted by guest on April 17, 2015 at 10:49 PM PDT #

Oracle Press has a book on 12c New Features http://bit.ly/1aVF9XK. They do not yet have a book specific to the 060 exam, but you could compare the book topics to the exam topics to see if this existing book will help you prepare.

Hi Brandye Barrington,

Im OCP DBA 10g, In the message that i got from Oracle, to immediately upg to 12C OCP DBA latest by March 2016 by having exam 1Z1-060, but i have found nothing on PearsonVue for 1z1-060, only 1Z0-060 available for WW & Japan.

So What kind of Exam that I should take ? following the message from Oracle, it only state 1Z1-060, not 1Z0,060. Who from Oracel can correct this message or which one is the valid one ?

If i miss take the exam till March 2016, let say today is April 2016, what will happen to my OCP ? is it expired ? should then i have to start from Zero in order to be OCP DBA again ? or stil OK to re-activate my OCP DBA only by single Exam (1Z1-060/1Z0-060) above March 2016 ?

Posted by Zulfirman on June 02, 2015 at 09:37 PM PDT #

Zulfirman,
The exam 1Z1-060 was the beta version of this exam. In order to upgrade, you will need to pass exam 1Z0-060.

If you do not upgrade by March 1, 2016, your certification will become inactive and you will no longer have access to many of the benefits of certification. However, you will regain access to those benefits once you upgrade. It will not be necessary to start over again.

Hi everyone,

would you please suggest me, I have completed 12c OCA, Now I want to upgrade to 12c OCP.
Which exam should i need to take to upgrade this to 12c OCP ????????

Posted by GHNZ on June 10, 2015 at 01:25 AM PDT #

Hi Brandye,
I'm in the same situation as Zulfirman (OCP 10g) so I'm starting my preparation in order to take 1z0-060. That test covers Oracle Database 12.1.0.1.0, but with the recent release of 12.1.0.2.0 with the new InMemory features I'm afraid Oracle might change the scope of the exam to 12.1.0.2, ruining my preparation and invalidating my brand new books. Is that right? Should I be afraid of any changes on the scope of 1Z0-060?
Thank you very much.

Best regards,
Daniel

Posted by Daniel Lázaro on June 12, 2015 at 03:05 AM PDT #

Daniel,
As far as I know, there will be no changes to exam 060 at this time. The exam topics that you see on the website are the current topics. Typically we give notice if topics are going to change.
