Oracle Certification at Oracle OpenWorld 2009

Guest Author

Oracle Certification at Oracle OpenWorld 2009As October 11 approaches, we are looking forward to Oracle OpenWorld 2009—over 1800 sessions, 400 partner exhibits, keynotes from the world’s technology leaders, hands-on labs, several special networking events, and more. A highlight for us at OpenWorld every year is talking to people and hearing their questions and comments, where we always come away with new ideas and a greater appreciation for the hard work that people put into getting certified and building their careers.


This is the first year all Oracle Certification holders are invited to the Oracle Certification Program (OCP) lounge. So whether you hold a Master, Professional, Expert, or Associate Oracle certification, you are welcome to mingle and network with other Oracle certified OpenWorld attendees. The lounge provides an exclusive space for our most valued product experts and offers a relaxing environment, informal meeting place, and light snacks. Additionally, the lounge has an online lab with access to FREE Self Test Software Practice Exams.

And, if you are considering becoming Oracle Certified, or want to upgrade your certification, Oracle Certification Program staff are available outside the lounge area to answer all your questions.
