Oracle Database 11g Certified Master (Full) Exam To Begin Mid-2010

Now that the new Oracle Database 11g Certified Master Upgrade Exam (one-day practicum) has been released, Oracle University is focusing on the development of the more thorough two-day full OCM exam.

On December 7, 2009, Oracle Certification released the [one-day] upgrade exam, which provides a path for those already certified as OCM on Oracle9i or Oracle Database 10g to upgrade their certification to Oracle Database 11g Certified Master.

Candidates upgrading their OCM certification to 11g via this 1-day upgrade exam do not need to first upgrade their OCP certification. You will instead be granted the 11g OCP certification along with the 11g OCM certification once you have passed the necessary OCM upgrade exam (and any additional required exams), and completed the Course Submission Form.

Release of the full OCM exam is expected during mid-2010. For more information on the new upgrade exam, visit the Oracle Database 11g OCM Upgrade Exam announcement page.
