Hi,
i have an OCP of dev track and OCA of oracle 9i db. Can i also take exam of 1ZO-060 to upgrade to oracle db 12c.

Posted by guest on June 12, 2014 at 02:31 AM PDT #

No, exam 060 is not the correct upgrade exam. There is now a path for DBA OCAs to upgrade to 12c DBA OCP with a required training courses and exam 067. You can view the details on our website http://bit.ly/1s9eLB4.

Thanks.

Hello,

I earned an Oracle8i DBA OCP. I am not sure what is about the upgrade certificate. Is it the same one like an Oracle12c DBA OCP ?

How is about the self-study package. Does this package contain as same study/practice stuffs as the others, such as the in-class and the live virtual course ?

Thanks.

Posted by guest on July 22, 2014 at 10:45 PM PDT #

I'm not 100% sure what your first question is, so if I'm not answering your question, please let me know. If you hold an 8i DBA OCP, you'll need to upgrade to 12c. You can do so by passing the 060 exam.

If you're referring to the value packages above, those packages contain training, exam voucher and practice exam.

Posted by Alex on October 30, 2014 at 12:04 AM PDT #

Hi Alex,
No, you will not be able to upgrade using this exam. However, there is a path for you from 9i DBA OCA to 12c DBA OCP. You will take exam 1Z0-067 (currently in beta) and complete one relevant 12c training class. You can find more details on our website http://bit.ly/1tmPDEG.

Hi Brandy.
Can you share the number of questions from the beta exam 1Z1-067? On the exam page this information isn't very specific (150-220?).
Regarding 1Z0-062, on exam page stated that consist of 95 questions, but some claim that it consist of 2 parts, one of 20 questions, and one 75 questions (following 1Z0-060 model). Can you please clear this out ?

Posted by aurelian on December 22, 2014 at 06:16 AM PST #

Aurelian,
For the 067 beta exam, there are 175 questions.

For the 062 exam, you are correct - it's in 2 parts, and the breakdown is as you mention above. You must pass both parts in order to pass the exam.

Hello,

We have 11g OCP and I work on a Platinium Oracle partner. My company offers me to take upgrade certificacion exam to 12c.

Seems to exists two path, OCP or OPM Implementation Specialist.

What is the key differences and your opinion on the best certification to take (both are usable to obtain the Oracle 12c Enablement from company point of view if not i'm wrong).

Oracle Database 12c Administrator Certified Professional (via 1Z0-060 exam)

or

Oracle 12c Implementation Specialist ( via Oracle Database 12c Essentials Exam 1Z0-497)

Thanks for your help.

Regards,
Tony

Posted by Tony on January 23, 2015 at 12:29 PM PST #

Hi Tony,
There is not an offical OCA upgrade path, but you could move to 12c DBA OCA by passing only the 062 exam. You would have had to take a SQL exam to qualify for the 11g DBA OCA, so you would not need to re-take a SQL exam for the 12c OCA certification.

If your ultimate goal is to get to 12c DBA OCP, you may want to consider "skipping" 12c OCA and moving straight to 12c DBA OCP by completing relevant training and passing exam 1Z0-067 http://bit.ly/1BfgN1x. This exam is currently in post beta review and should be released in production in a few weeks. I believe that you can currently pre-register for the exam.

I took the test, passed in part 1 of 12c new features with good score and failed in 2nd part of Key DBA skill. I disappointed with testing method. I got certification since 7.3 to 11g and RAC Expert. Key DBA skill part doesn't appears to realistic testing real time DBA experience rather it tests reading skill and unusual configuration. I am supporting Oracle databases in different OS for twenty years, solving most of the problems ourselves and reaching to Oracle support only for code or bug related issues.

My test feedback

Testing server was too slow, it didn't respond timely. Wasted sizable time
Fees is expensive
Exam has two sections. No option or indication to identify or select second section, wasted most of the time in first section and failed the test
Time is not adequate.
It appears, Test is for testing reading skill rather technical skill.

Posted by Raj on February 19, 2015 at 03:18 AM PST #

Raj,
If you have earned the Oracle Forms Developer Certified Professional certification, you likely have passed at least one of the exams in the 11g DBA OCP path.

In order to earn the 11g DBA OCP certification, you will first need to earn 11g DBa OCA http://bit.ly/1jgwflz. There are 2 exams in this path - a SQL exam and exam 1Z0-052. If you passed one of the following exams to earn your Forms Developer certification, then you'll only need to pass exam 052:

001, 007, 047, 051, 061.

After earning 11g DBA OCA, you'll need to complete the steps to move to 11g DBA OCP - http://bit.ly/1t1VLVH
- Complete a relevant training course
- Pass exam 1Z0-053
- Submit the course details for verification.

Brandye Barrington

Posted by Brandye Barrington on February 23, 2015 at 12:17 PM PST #

Experiencing the same as other people, passed the first part of the exam which covered 12c new features, but failed the second part on Key Skills - I found the DBA Skills questions asked were completely irrelevant to the job! This is a complete joke that an upgrade exam contain these kind of questions, and if it must, let's try not to put trick questions or things that are irrelevant to the role of a DBA.
I get the feeling now that certification is just another way for Oracle to make money and being OCP (I have 8i, 9i, 10g and 11g OCP already and 15 years of experience as a DBA) is meaningless, mainly because the questions asked on the exam are completely irrelevant to the practical requirements of being a DBA.

Posted by guest on March 10, 2015 at 08:08 AM PDT #

I'm sorry that you had this experience with this exam. These exams are actually developed by subject matter experts and they go through a rigorous beta process to test the validity of the items. I can assure you that there are no exam items that are intentionally created to be 'trick' questions. We take exam development and validity very seriously and would love to hear your feedback.

If you have feedback on specific topics or items, please send your feedback to our Oracle Certification Support team so that they can pass it along to the exam developers http://bit.ly/YpaA7i.

Unfortuntately, Oracle does not provide job assistance. Make as many connections as possible on LinkedIn. You can also get some job expereince by doing contract work. You can get more information at Elance.com or http://bit.ly/LjiDHp.

Hi
I want to be 12c OCP DBA
I am a 9i-OCP in developer track (took 7 few years back)
My question is
I had passed IZO 007 (SQL paper)as part of the OCP developer track which was also one basic exam for 9i DBA track at that time.I could not complete other exams for 9i DBA that time.
Now that I want to be 12c OCP, does IZO007 count towards one exam for 12c OCP DBA?What are the other exams I need to take to achieve 12cDBA?

Posted by Veena on April 21, 2015 at 04:30 AM PDT #

Veena,
You can see the certification path outlined on our website http://bit.ly/1jgwLjC. You will need to start with the OCA path and then move on to OCP.

You will only need to take one exam - 1Z0-062 for OCA since you've already passed 007.

Many thanks

Posted by Yuriy on May 09, 2015 at 03:11 AM PDT #

Yuriy,
You could take one of the 12c courses that fulfills the training requirement for 12c DBA OCP certification and submit it for your 10g certification. You will need to complete the course and submit the course form before September 1, 2015.

Otherwise, you could upgrade your 10g OCA certification to 12c by completing 12c training and passing exam 1Z0-067.

I hold 10g OCP. I am interested in upgrading to 12c by appearing for 1Z0-060 exam. I was told there is cut off date of 1 March,2015 or 1 April 2015 to write 1Z0-060 exam.

What happens if I appear/pass 1Z0-060 exam after this cut off date? I mean, still can I get upgraded to 12c OCP by just writing one exam and all my previous credentials are honored? I am not sure how many exams you have to write if you start fresh for 12c OCP. I am NOT interested in appearing for all those exams, if I have to.

Thanks

If you miss the upgrade deadline of March 1, 2016, your 10g certification will become inactive and you will no longer have access to the benefits of certification. However, you can reactivate your certification and regain access to certification benefits by passing exam 1Z0-060 and upgrading to 12c. You will not have to pass additional exams.

Hi,
If you have 11g OCA, you'll need to either:

- Pass exam 1Z0-067 and
- Complete and submit 12c course details

or

- Pass exam 053 to earn 11g OCP
- Complete and submit 11g course details
- Pass exam 060 to upgrade to 12c OCP

Regards,
Brandye Barrington

Posted by Brandye Barrington on September 25, 2015 at 12:41 PM PDT #

You must upgrade from 8i to 11g or 12c by Nov 1 in order to keep your 8i certification active and to keep access to certificate, logo and ability to verify your certification to a 3rd party.

If you miss the deadline, you will still be able to upgrade after the deadline, but you will lose access to the benefits mentioned above until you do upgrade.

Could you please suggest me which one will be better for me iz0-053(11g ocp)
or iz0-067(12c upgraded ocp)

Posted by MRUNMAYEE on October 05, 2015 at 08:08 PM PDT #

Mrunmayee,
This is a tough question for me to answer for you. The 067 exam covers a LOT of ground and can be quite a tough exam. However, if you're prepared for it, it is the quickest way for you to get to the latest version of Database Administrator OCP certification - 12c.

Another consideration for you would be what training you have done. If your training is 11g, then I would suggest you pursue the 11g OCP option. If your training is in 12c, then you may consider the 12c OCP option - just be sure to carefully review the exam topics (which you should do if you choose to take either exam!).

I hope this helps.

Brandye Barrington

Thanks

Posted by Alim on October 12, 2015 at 09:19 AM PDT #

Hi Alim,
If you are 9i OCP, you can upgrade to 12c OCP by passing exam 1Z0-060.

If you have not yet signed in to your CertView account, I suggest that you do so now.

1. Create a web account at pearsonvue.com/oracle using your Prometric ID (Oracle Testing ID)
-- If Pearson assigns you a new ID, you should contact them immediately to request that they merge the two IDs.
2. About 48 hours after your Pearson account is created and you have only a single ID, go to certview.oracle.com and authenticate your account using the email address and Oracle Testing ID from your Pearson VUE account.

Would it be right way to go to 12g OCP, because my certification is going to expire by March 2016.

Kindly suggest.

You can upgrade to 11g. It is not necessary to go directly to 12c if you are not prepared. You only need to upgrade to 11g by Nov 1.

Your advise will be highly appreciated.

I recommend that you contact the Oracle Certification Support team http://education.oracle.com/pls/eval-eddap-dcd/OU_SUPPORT_OCP.home?p_source=OCP to ask what can be done or if any exceptions can be made to allow you to attend an 11g course and still be awarded the 10g credential.

I'm not sure that this will be approved, because we have not been awarding 10g credentials since September, but it's worth a try.

Malcolm,
You can upgrade to 12c OCP by only passing exam 060. No other steps are required. The deadline is Nov 1 in order to keep your 8i OCP credential active. If you are not able to take the exam by Nov 1, your 8i credential will become inactive on Nov 1, but will be reactivated when you have upgraded.

Hi Brandye,

I'm OCP 8i and I'd like to take the exam 1z0-030 in order to be able to upgrade to 11G or 12G. However, when I try to register at https://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=652&get_params=p_exam_id:undefined,it says the following: "This exam has been validated against release 10". Do I need to upgrade to 10G from 8i? If yes,which exam do I need to take?

Thank you very much,

Franklin

Franklin,
If you need to upgrade from 8i OCP to 12c OCP, you'll need to pass exam 1Z0-060.

If your certs are in Forms, you would not take the 060 exam. It is only for DBAs. You would probably want to upgrade to this credential Oracle Certified Professional, Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Forms Developer.

Hi,

I am having OCP 9i Certification. I want to do upgradation, So passing single 1z0-060 exam is correct path for upgradation to 12c OCP? Do I need to give any another exam for upgradation to 12c?

Thanks

Posted by guest on January 24, 2016 at 09:43 AM PST #

I have 9i OCP, how many chances do I get at passing 1z0-060? Is there a time limit or maximum number of attempts that can be made to pass the exam?

Posted by guest on February 01, 2016 at 02:03 PM PST #

You can make 4 attempts in 12-month time period.

Brandye Barrington

Posted by Brandye Barrington on February 03, 2016 at 09:57 AM PST #

Yes - you can upgrade from 9i OCP to 12c OCP by only passing exam 1z0-060. No additional training required.

Brandye Barrington

Hi Ana,
If you do not upgrade by March 1, your 9i credential will become inactive. You can upgrade any time after March 1 and your 9i credential will be reactivated.

Hi Brandye,

Can you explain what is the difference between exam 1Z0-060 and 1z0-497..

If I complete 1z0-060 exam will I get OPN certified specialist or I need to do again 1Z0-497 exam to get it?

Thanks

Ravi

Posted by Ravi on February 08, 2016 at 08:53 AM PST #

Hi Ravi,
Exam 060 is an upgrade exam to upgrade you from an earlier version of Database OCP to the 12c version. It is focused on the database administrator role.

Exam 497 is more focused on sales and implementation and less on the admin of the database.

These exams do not lead to the same certification.

Brandye

Hi
I have already completed 9i ocp but still hands on requirement is pending from my end to achieve the ocp 9i certificate.although I have got 9i oca certificate . Recently i have passed 1z0-034 upgrade exam is it now sufficient for getting 11g ocp certificate if now i complete hands on also .Please advise

Posted by GAURAV Rajvanshi on February 24, 2016 at 11:53 AM PST #

Hi Gaurav,
If you have 9i OCA and have passed exam 034, you'll simply need to complete an 11g approved course. Once you complete the training, you'll need to submit the course details for approval.

Hi,

I recently passed 1z0-062 exam. Funny thing is, I am already an 11g OCA and didn't realize that there was an exam 1z0-067 for an upgrade directly to 12c OCP (butterfingers)!

I have not taken any training at the moment and I believe that one pre-requisite of being an OCP requires completing a training.

I have been a DBA for quite a few years now and having said, I have managed to pass cert exams by only reading Oracle documentations. Having said, will a SELF-STUDY COURSE be sufficient to be accredited as a "training" prerequisite for the OCP (of course, in case I pass either 1z0-063 or 1z0-067)? I am at the moment preparing for it.

Appreciate it.

Thanks and regards,
Nyx

Posted by guest on March 18, 2016 at 04:01 AM PDT #

Hi Nyx,
You will need to complete instructor-led training in the form of in-class, live virtual training or training on demand. Self study does not fulfill the requirement.
