FAQ: Exam 1Z0-007 Retirement

Q) I passed exam 1Z0-007. If I do not complete my certification path before the exam retires on July 31, 2013, will I have to take another SQL exam?

A) The short answer is no - you will not be required to take another SQL exam to 'replace' these exam results. You can continue with your certification path as planned.

As long as you have passed an exam before the retirement date, the exam results remain valid even after the exam retires, and the exam will count toward your certification path. The 1Z0-007 exam will continue to fulfill the SQL requirement for 9i, 10g, 11g and 12c Database Administrator OCA paths as well as the PL/SQL Developer OCA path, though no new 007 exams will be delivered after July 31, 2013.

This exam is retired, so it is not available online. You can go to certification.oracle.com to see what exams and certifications are available. You can go to pearsonvue.com/oracle/locate to see what test centers are near you.

Is there an equivalent of 1Z0-007 exam that is available presently as the former has been retired?

The exams 1Z0-047, 1Z0-051 and 1Z0-061 are interchangeable with the 007 exam.

Hi,

I've finished 1z0-007 in 2006, can it be considered for Oracle 11g OCA instead of exam 1z0-051? because till few months back, it has clearly been mentioned in Oracle certification Path webpage, that 1z0-007 can be considered for 1z0-051. But now, I couldn't see it. It has been removed and statement has been updated with following:

"Exams 1Z0-061: or 1Z0-047 will also fulfill this exam (1z0-051) requirement."

Hi Jayachandra,
The 007 exam will still fulfill the SQL exam requirement. You do not need to take 051 or 061 if you have already passed 007.

I had cleared izo-007 exam in july 2011 now i want to complete the certification oca which exam can i take to complete it.

Well, it depends on which certification you are pursuing. This exam can lead to 10g, 11g or 12c DBA certification or to the PL/SQL Developer OCA. You can get more information on specific certification requirements on our website at certification.oracle.com. Good luck on your certification path!

hi,
I want to start with the oracle certification. I completed my graduation in 2013 and now I am working in a software company. I look forward to becoming a DBA. So from which certification I can start with. Please guide me with the above as I could not get the ans to my question on your site.

Thank you

If you are interested in a DBA certification, you should start with 11g http://bit.ly/Kx7iac or 12c http://bit.ly/175HVQN OCA.

12c is the latest version of certification. However, 12c is still fairly new, so you may find that many of the jobs available are still in 11g. This is something you should research. You can get more information on our Certification Forum http://bit.ly/Lt5vhm.

I have oracle11g oca .What is the best route for me to become oracle 12c ocp.

I've finished 1z0-007 , can it be considered for Oracle 11g OCA instead of exam 1z0-061?

can 1Z0-059
Oracle Database 11g DBA OCP Hands-on Course fulfill the requirement for Oracle 12c DBA OCP Hands-on Course

Posted by guest on January 28, 2014 at 08:55 AM PST #

The 007 exam can take the place of 061 for 12c DBA OCA. Alternatively you could complete the 11g DBA OCP path and then upgrade to 12c DBA OCP. One of the deciding factors could be training. If you've already completed 11g training, you should complete the 11g DBA OCP path and then upgrade to 12c because your 11g training will not fulfill the training requirement for 12c.

Hi Sriramachandran,
Do you mean that you purchased a voucher for exam 007 last year? I'm not sure how you could have actually purchased the exam and still have it be valid a year later.

If you purchased the voucher, it will be usable for another non-proctored exam (1Z0-051 or 1Z0-061).

hi
i have done 1z0-007 exam 4 year ago.I want to download certificate again.
Please tell me how can i download it.

Posted by guest on March 26, 2014 at 03:08 AM PDT #

If you need the score report for your 007 exam, you can access it at certview.oracle.com. If you passed 007 and no other exams, you will not have a formal certificate yet because a certification will be granted only after passing another exam.

Hi

I completed classroom training for oracle 9i sql and cleared 9i database OCP in 2004, Can I upgarde to 11g OCP directly or need to attend any classroom training?

Posted by Mamatha on March 31, 2014 at 11:31 PM PDT #

Mamatha,
If you have a 9i DBA OCP certification, you can upgrade directly to 11g DBA OCP with no additional training. You could also upgrade directly to 12c with a single exam and no additional training with exam 1Z0-060.

Navneet,
It is not likely that you'll be able to receive the score report. I believe that if you took the exam in 2009, you took it at a Prometric testing center. We no longer have access to these score reports. However, the record of you having passed that exam is in CertView (certview.oracle.com). You will need to create a Pearson VUE web account at pearsonvue.com/oracle and then authenticate your CertView account using the email address and Oracle Testing ID from your Pearson VUE account. When creating your Pearson VUE account, you will need to enter the Oracle Testing ID that you have. If, for any reason, Pearson VUE assigns you a new testing ID, you will need to contact them to have the new ID and your old ID merged BEFORE you authenticate your CertView account. The best way to ensure that the account is created correctly is to call PV and create your account with the assistance of their customer support team - pearsonvue.com/oracle/contact.

Guest,
Yes, your exam results are still valid. If you are pursuing an Oracle Database OCA certification, you will only need to take one exam. You do not need to take another SQL exam.
