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?

Posted by guest on October 15, 2013 at 11:26 PM PDT #

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.

Posted by guest on January 07, 2014 at 10:19 PM PST #

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

Posted by guest on January 21, 2014 at 12:52 AM PST #

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).

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.

Hi,

I took Oracle 9i SQL 1Z0-007 exam on 7 April 2006 but I do not have access to the score report or certificate. The email address I used to register has now been closed as I registered through my previous employer email account which closed when I resigned. Is there a way to retrieve the score card or certificate from Oracle records?

Thank you for your assistance.

Hi,

I have given 1z0-007 on 9th Feb,2008. My Prometric testing ID for this exam is SR3235628. After that I have appeared 1z0-851 on 28th Feb, 2012. The Oracle testing ID for this is OC1124296. Now I am planning to appear the 1z0-144 exam in this month.

Please suggest which PeasonVue account is valid for me. Do I need to merge both the account?

Thanks in advance

Posted by nalinakshee on August 11, 2014 at 03:26 AM PDT #

Hi Brandye,

Is it allowed to appear directly for 1Z0-147 (Program with PL/SQL) without first appearing for 1Z0-047 (SQL)?

This will be the first time I will appear for any Oracle certification. I understand that my certification will not be complete until I appear for both 1Z0-047 and 147. But does the sequence matter? Will I get my certification in case I decide to appear for 1Z0-047 later on after passing 1Z0-147 first?

Thanks,
Vishu

Posted by Vishu on August 13, 2014 at 10:36 PM PDT #

Nalinakshee,
You should contact Pearson VUE and request for them to merge the IDs so that all your exam records are under one account. www.pearsonvue.com/oracle/idmerge.

Vishu,
It does not matter in which order you take the exams. You can take either exam first and you will be granted the certification and receive the certificate once you have passed both.

Hello Brandye,

I'm a 10g OCA DBA and I'd like to "upgrade" my certification to OCA 12c, but I reached my certificate passing the 1Z0-007 test, and although you mention it can be valid for the 12c OCA, it does not appear in the certification path (https://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=653&get_params=p_id:249#tabs-2)

Right now is it still valid? or definitely I have to take the 1Z0-061?

Regards,

Giancarlo

Posted by guest on September 09, 2014 at 05:59 AM PDT #

Giancarlo,
You can take the 062 exam to obtain the 12c DBA OCA certification. The 007 exam will fulfill the SQL exam requirement. Alternatively, you can upgrade from 10g DBA OCA to 12c DBA OCP by passing the exam 067 and completing a training requirement. You can get more details on our website http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=765.

Hello Brandye,

I completed OCA-PLSQL at 2009 by clearing two exam IZO-007 and IZO-147.
Now I keep interest to complete OCA at DB end. So what exam I should take. I am confused since I came to know that 9i is already obsolete.

Please help on this.
thanks

Posted by Indrajit on November 20, 2014 at 02:02 AM PST #

Indrajit,
You can pursue the 12c DBA OCA certification by passing exam 1Z0-061. You need to be sure that you register for your exam using the same Oracle Testing ID (Prometric ID) you used when registering for your earlier exams.

When you create your Pearson VUE web account, if they email you a new Oracle Testing ID, please contact them immediately to request the IDs be merged.

The 007 exam combined with the 061 exam will result in OCA certification.

Good luck!

Hi,

I'm planning for OCA 11g certification,could anyone please confirm whether I need to prepare for both 1z0-051 & 1z0-052 or only 1z0-052 is enough to complete 11g OCA certification?

Please confirm ASAP..

Thank you..

Posted by RAJALAKSHMI on December 09, 2014 at 09:54 PM PST #

Rajalakshmi,
You can go ahead and take exam 052 to earn the 11g OCA certification. You do not need to take another SQL exam.

Will this be considered for OCA? Is there any exam that I should appear to get certified OCA if this cannot be considered?

Please suggest asap.

With exams 007 and 144, you should have earned the PL/SQL OCA certification. You should be sure that the exams were taken using the same Oracle Testing ID. Go to certview.oracle.com and you will be able to sign in and view your certification and exam history to see if the certification was granted.

Hi Mr.Brandye

I've Completed my 1Z0-007 in the year 2007 and No other exams were taken.My old prometric id is like PRxxxxx and now i've registered and logged into Pearson VUE,where new testing id like OCxxxxx is being assigned.While check with "Exam History",the message shows as "You have not previously taken any exams with Pearson VUE".Is it means to start exams from 1Z0-007...?.
Else Is it possible to go head with 10g Admin-1 &2 to get 10g OCP.Then i would like to go for 11g OCA & OCP.Please clarify.

Posted by guest on December 20, 2014 at 06:08 PM PST #

Moideen,
You need to have your old account merged with your new account. You should contact Oracle Certification Support http://bit.ly/YpaA7i for assistance with your old Prometric ID.

Then you will need to request Pearson VUE to merge the two IDs www.pearsonvue.com/oracle/idmerge.

Once the IDs are merged, all of your prior exams and certs should show up in your new account in CertView.

If you've previously taken one of the SQL exams (001, 007, 051, 061), those exam results are still valid to fulfill the SQL exam requirement for OCA certification. You will need to ensure that all exam results are accessible in CertView under the same Oracle Testing ID.

If you've taken tests under different Oracle testing IDs, you'll need to contact Pearson VUE (pearsonvue.com/oracle/idmerge) and request to have the IDs merged.

Hi Sathik,
You have access to your logos and eCertificates in certview.oracle.com. If you have not yet accessed CertView, you will need to create a profile at pearsonvue.com/oracle. You will need to enter your Prometric ID. If you do not have that ID, it is best to contact Pearson VUE by phone for assistance in creating this account - pearsonvue.com/oracle/contact.

After creating your account at Pearson VUE, you'll need to go to certview.oracle.com and authenticate your account by entering the email address and Oracle Testing ID from the Pearson VUE website.
