> Those holding an Oracle Database 11g Administrator Certified Professional (OCP) certification are exempt from the training requirement. How about those who are "Oracle Database 10g Administration Certified Professional (OCP)" certified? Are they also exempted from the training requirement?

Sorry Asif, but because this is an 11g certification, the 10g training does not count toward the requirement. - Harold

Is there a detailed course content overview available?

Hi, I am Oracle 10g certified DBA. Am I exempt from the training requirement ? I think Oracle 10g certified DBA's should be exempted. Please confirm. Thanks for answering. Take care Regards Dan
