Increase Your Job Performance With Oracle Database Certification

Brandye Barrington
Sr. Program Manager

How often do you have to re-assign cases to another technical engineer because you're not able to resolve the issue? What is your average turn-around time on resolving issues? Are you currently certified?

Certified survey respondents consistently report more confidence in their abilities, broader levels of knowledge, fewer mistakes, more advanced skills, faster turn-around times and better job performance over all. 

Nearly 40% of surveyed IT professionals said that certification helped them perform complex tasks more confidently, and a full 60% reported a positive impact on their professional image.

Whether you've considered Oracle Database Certification as a logical next step to training, or are just now thinking about it, now is the time to act.

Oracle Certification is beta testing the Oracle Database 12cR2 Administration (1Z1-072). The beta exam contains 120 questions, and takes longer to complete than a production exam because you will be contributing to the selection of items for the production exam. The cost of this exam for early adopters is $50USD - this is nearly 80% off the regular exam cost.

Combined with proven SQL knowledge, passing this exam earns you the Oracle Database 12cR2 Administration Certified Associate certification. Review full requirements

The next big thing in Oracle Database is Oracle Database 12c Release 2. 

  • Prove your skills
  • Get yourself halfway to Oracle Database certification with the newest OCA certification exam, and
  • Position yourself ahead of the curve with this next-generation certification.

    Sorry for the confusion! I had initially listed the exam number as '1Z0,' but since it's in beta, the prefixis '1Z1.' I've updated the article now.

    When you go to the Pearson VUE site to register, scroll to the bottom of the list and you'll see the '1Z1' listings. Look for 1Z1-072.
