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.

Comments:

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.

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!

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.

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.
