Complete Your Oracle Database 10g Certification Before it Retires in March 2015

The Oracle Database 10g exams and credentials listed below retire on March 1, 2015. If you have partially completed a 10g Database certification path, complete the remaining requirements before March 1, 2015 to avoid having to start over with a new certification path. Completing a certification path includes passing all required exams, taking any required training and submitting the course form. If your certification path (as noted on the track page) requires submission of a course form, certification will only be granted after you have submitted the form.

Schedule your 10g exams well before the retirement date to allow for an exam retake if one is needed. The 14-day retake policy will be enforced. Visit the Oracle Certification Website for more information on this retirement.

Please i want to know, if the question for the exam, is going to base on the curse outline alone, and no other questions, is going to be attached to it, like oracle architecture and so on.

The focus for OCM exams is not on 11g. Unfortunately, that means fewer 10g OCM events scheduled. I hope that you can find an event that will fit your needs.

Happy New Year !
I have taken the following 2 courses in Community college Dallas --authorized by Oracle
1Z0-042 Oracle Database 10g: Administration I
1Z0-043 Oracle Database 10g: Administration II

Now I am Preparing to take the Test. As we all Know that the Time is very short for me to Pass ALL the Test. So What are my options ? --

1. Will Oracle extend the time to Complete my Tests ?
2. Will Oracle allow me to count 10g courses as the required Training and let me take the online test for for 12c
1Z0-062 Oracle Database 12c: Installation and Administration and
1Z0-063 Oracle Database 12c: Advanced Administration

I know that things changes ---But It is very sad to see that oracle is changing Policies without much concerns for Hard Working People.
I am fine if Oracle says that they will give me 10g certification as and when I pass the Test. But to retire a test does not make any sense. The Knowledge never retires. My 10g knowledge remains worthy for 10g Database as long as the 10g is installed and working .

Please advise me after giving due consideration to my request.

Warm Regards
JK Sharma

JK,
You will need to complete the exams in your certification path before the retirement date. I am sorry that this is a hardship for you. These 10g certification paths have been available for many years. We are very sensitve to our candidates who have spent or are spending a considerable amount of time and money to prepare for certification exams, this is why we gave 6 months notice for these retirements.

Regards,
Brandye Barrington

i am a registered candidate of oracle university and it is in 10g and also certified as Oracle database sql expert. Now can i register for 11g exam (OCA and OCP)?.
Regards
NKS

Posted by guest on February 05, 2015 at 01:37 AM PST #

Yes, you can move to 11g.

If you have 10g DBA OCP, you can upgrade to 11g DBA OCP with exam 1Z0-050. If you do not hold the 10g DBA OCP certification, you will need to take an 11g course in order to earn the 11g DBA OCP certification.

Training is not required for OCA, but is required for OCP.

Dear:

I've attended the OCM 10 training from WDP.But I can not register the exam due to it will expire.
My question is that do I still need to pay for the exam even if I don't register to take it?(I've paid for training and exam when I begin to take the OCM training.)
Thanks in advance!

Posted by OE on February 16, 2015 at 07:13 PM PST #

OE,
Typically, you pay for the exam when you register for it. If you are not planning to take the exam, you will not need to pay for it.

Regards,
Brandye Barrington

Please I have a 10G OCA certificate and since you would be retiring the OCP exam would like to know if I need to begin from 11g OCA or if I could write the 11G OCP

Thanks

Posted by guest on February 23, 2015 at 06:00 AM PST #

If you have 10g OCA, you can upgrade to 11g OCP by passing exam 1Z0-034 and completing 12c or 11g training. Or you can upgrade to 12c OCP by passing exam 067 and completing 12c training.

You can get more info on our website http://bit.ly/1wgVel6.

Hi
I have completed my oracle 9i course in authorized training center and completed 01z-007 exam in the year 2007. If i directly take 10g exam of 042 & 043,before it retires,can i get the OCP 10g certified?

Posted by guest on February 23, 2015 at 10:09 PM PST #

Unfortunately, your 9i course will not fulfill the course requirement for 10g certification. You will need to take a 10g course.

Since the 10g certification is retiring and it is 2 versions behind the most current version. And since you will be required to take additional training, I suggest that you go ahead and takd 11g or 12c training and go for a current version of certification that you won't have to rush to earn, and that will remain active longer.

Regards,
Brandye Barrington

Hi,

I am OCP 9i certified.
Since the upgrade for 10g is retiring in few days will I get OCP 11g if I clear 1Z0-050 exam?
Do I have to undergo any classroom training to be OPC 11g certified?

Regards
AJ

Posted by guest on February 25, 2015 at 02:48 AM PST #

Hi,
I am having 10g OCP and i want to upgrade to 11g OCP, please confirm what is the last date until I can go for the upgrade exam.

Thanks

Fareed,
You will need to upgrade to 11g or 12c by March 1, 2016.

AJ,
Sorry for missing your comment earlier. If you want to upgrade to 11g DBA OCP from 9i DBA OCP, you'll need to pass exam 055. I hope this helps.

Hello Brandye:

As your reply:

"OE,
Typically, you pay for the exam when you register for it. If you are not planning to take the exam, you will not need to pay for it."

I've contacted with WDP for asking them to return the exam cost for OCM 10g.But they still don't give any feedback to me.It lasts a long time.

Could you help to let me know is there any method to deal with this case?

Posted by OE on March 12, 2015 at 08:22 PM PDT #

Hi OE,
I'm sorry for the issues you are having. I don't really have very much experience with WDPs, but I do know that they are independent training facilities - usually thru a college, university or trade school. Any fees that you paid to the WDP will need to be addressed directly with the WDP.

If you are not getting any response from your school, I would recommend checking with the WDP manager in your region to see if they can assist. You can find a list of WDP managers here https://workforce.oracle.com/pls/wdp_ekit/rd_psp_contact1.

Good luck with this issue.

My 10g OCP certification has been expired. Am i eligible for " Upgrade Oracle9i/10g OCA OR OCP to Oracle Database 11g OCP (1Z0-034)"?

Posted by guest on October 21, 2015 at 10:21 PM PDT #

If you hold the 10g DBA OCP credential, you can upgrade to 11g DBA OCP by passing exam 1Z0-050, or you can upgrade to 12c DBA OCP by passing exam 1Z0-060.

Regards,
Brandye Barrington

Posted by Brandye Barrington on October 30, 2015 at 02:13 PM PDT #

Satish,
Did you earn your 10g DBA OCP credential? Did you complete the training and submit the course form for verification? If not, then you did not earn the 10g DBA OCP credential and you are not able to upgrade.

There is a very slim possiblity that, if you have now completed relevant training, you could contact the Oracle Certification Support team http://education.oracle.com/pls/eval-eddap-dcd/OU_SUPPORT_OCP.home?p_source=OCP and ask if it is possible to still get the 10g DBA OCP credential if you submit the relevant course details right away.

Posted by Satish Jadhav on November 05, 2015 at 05:41 AM PST #

Satish,
Claiming your badge is not required. The digital badge is a new benefit offered by the Oracle Certification program. It is an easy and secure way for your to share your certifications on social media.

If you don't want to claim and use the badge, you don't have to, but it's a great benefit and I recommend it!

Satish,
If you have the 10g DBA OCP credential, you can upgrade to 11g DBA OCP by passing the upgrade exam 050. However, check in certview.oracle.com first to be sure that the 10g DBA OCP credential was awarded to you.

Hi, I have 10g DBA OCP. May i know when is this cert retiring? And when is the deadline to take the exam to keep my cert active? Is it Mar 1, 2016 or later is also possible?

Posted by Felice Meneses on January 05, 2016 at 11:09 PM PST #

Felice,
Your certification will become inactive on March 1, 2016. You will still be able to upgrade after that date, but if you have not upgraded before that date, you will lose access to your eCertificate, your digital badge and the ability to verify your certification through CertView. You will regain those options after you've upgraded, even if it's after March 1, 2016.

Posted by jumoke on February 04, 2016 at 04:21 AM PST #

Hello,
i did 10g and i have completed my training for 12c 1z0-060.On certview i noticed that my 10g OCP and the only reason i could think of was i didn't submit the course submission form.What can i do?

Posted by guest on February 04, 2016 at 04:45 AM PST #

If you didn't submit your course form for 10g OCP before the deadline, you can contact the Oracle Certification Support team and request an exception and see if they will grant an exception and accept your training and grand your 10g OCP now.

Hi Team,

I have completed 10gOCA on 2008.

For upgrading to the OCP11g,i have checked the certification path and in that i have to take first training and then after i am able to exam of OCP and get certificate.

So want to know that how many minimum training day need to be attend for eligible for OCP.

Posted by Vaibhav Kansara on February 18, 2016 at 10:27 PM PST #

The 10G certification will become inactive on 01-March-2016, which means that you will no longer have access to logos and eCertificates and will no longer be able to verify certification to a third party through CertVew. You can still upgrade after that date. Once you upgrade, your 10G certifications will be reactivated and you will regain the benefits of certification provided through CertView.

Vaibhav, there is a three-day minimum for training. You can find the list of relevant courses on our website https://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=653&get_params=p_id:52#tabs-4&sc=WWOU15043965MPP001C002. Click the View Upgrade Path button beside "Oracle Database 11g Administrator OCP - upgrade from Oracle9i or Oracle Database 10g DBA OCA"

You can still upgrade your certification using the upgrade path. You will not need to start your path from the beginning.
