Oracle Certification Team at OpenWorld 2008

Many of us from the Oracle Certification team will be at OpenWorld this year. Since we spend much of the year communicating by email/blog/web, we get excited to meet the humans behind the emails.

So whether you’re recently certified, a certified veteran, or even just wondering about Oracle Certification, please stop and see us. You’ll find us at the OCP Lounge & Testing Center at Moscone South - Rooms 250 & 252.

Paul Sorensen,

Director, Oracle Certification


Hi Paul, After having attended the 2005, 2006 and 2007 editions I will skip the 2008 edition as well as my usual question to you : "when will the 10g upgrade for 9i OCM be available" Regards Laurent

The conference offers an opportunity to learn more about what Oracle offers. I am excited and want to learn more about the certification.

Hi Laurent- In response to your OCM question. We spent so much time working on the platform for the 10g OCM (it was entirely reworkded) that we did not get a streamlined upgrade path in place for 9i OCMs. However we are developing a one-day upgrade exam for 10g OCM to 11g OCM and will include a streamlined path for 9i OCM to 11g OCM. The path will have three requirements: -Upgrade to 11g OCP. - Complete the 10g RAC or 11g RAC Expert credential (11g is not available yet). -Pass the 1 day 11g OCM upgrade exam described above. As for the timing, we are only now beginning the planning for the upgrade exam, which will be released first. I wouldn't dare try to predict the timing but we'll be pushing out the details on this blog, twitter (OracleCert), and our wesite. I hope that this helps. Thanks, Paul

Hi paul I have completed OCA 9i and also completed Performance Tuning training in oracle authorised center. later i was put into 10g database environment. so, Iam planned to do10g OCA and OCP, instead of writing 9i OCP. Last month i was completed both 10g certifications exams. successfully cleared both the exams. now my question is :Already i've completed training for PT in 9i. so is it mandatory to atten training for 10g OCP also?. Regards Faizal

Hello Paul, Just wondering if there are any books available that I could follow for "Oracle SOA Architect Certified Expert" certification ? My company is not gonna sponsor me for it so I cant attend the training as it'll be little too expensive for me. Just want to know what study material sort of I could follow for Oracle "SOA Architect Certified Expert" ? Thanks.

Hi PD - all of our exam preparation content are in the training courses referred to on the 1Z0-114 exam page ("Organization, Planning & Architectural Consideration for SOA", "Organization, Planning & Architectural Considerations for SOA - LWC SOA Architectural Concepts and Design Principles", and "SOA: Architectural Concepts and Design Principles LWC.") I'm not sure if there are third-party resources being developed elsewhere. Cheers, - Harold

Hi Paul, Is there any reference material available online for preparing for "Oracle SOA Architect Certified Expert" Certification ? Thanks, Varun

Posted by Varun on April 27, 2009 at 07:07 AM PDT #

Hi Varun - I've only worked with the Oracle materials that comes with the classes (i.e. not a download). You might also post this question over on the Certification Forum as well: Cheers, - Harold

Will we be having any exam cram this year?? I would be attending this year's OpenWorld and will like to know if there would be an exam cram? Will appreciate if anyone can provide the information. Thanks Aman

Hi Aman – we will not be doing onsite testing or exam cram this year. However, we will continue to operate the Oracle Certification Program lounge in Moscone South (room 250), and we have added two certification-related Power Sessions:

  • “Five Easy Steps to Earning an Oracle Certification” Paul Sorensen / Wed Oct 14 at 1:00pm
  • “Achieving Oracle Certification: Tips and Advice from an Oracle Certified Maste,” Jay Norton / Wed Oct 14 at 1:45pm

We are working on offering some special exam discounts, but do not have details to share. We look forward to seeing you at Oracle OpenWorld 2009!
