Are You Getting Your Training From an Authorized Provider?
By Harold Green on Apr 03, 2009
We’ve had some recent issues with non-partners falsely claiming to be Oracle partners. So please remember that if you are not taking your class directly from Oracle University while trying to meet your hands-on course requirement, make absolutely sure that your training facility is authorized to provide Oracle training.
There are several types of centers through which you can complete required certification training – Oracle University, Oracle Authorized Education Partners (OAEP), Oracle Authorized Education Centers (OAEC), Oracle Academy (OA) or Oracle Workforce Development Program (WDP). Only training from Oracle or its authorized partners may count towards certification.
Unfortunately, we have recently had some issues with a non-partner facility in Southern California claiming that their training is accepted toward Oracle Certification (when it is not) and some candidates have been misled.
What can you do to protect yourself? Don’t take their word for it.
If the center you plan to attend allows you to schedule on the Oracle website then it is a partner. If not, then it still may be a partner. To find out, you can verify partner status of training centers through the websites below.
For further assistance, please contact Oracle University.
