The Technical Skills Gap is Widening.
The Technical Skills Gap is Widening.
I came across this blog post, in it Christoph Burandt, Senior Principal Instructor, Oracle University tells about his first experience with the cloud.
He asks “Going to the Cloud” - what does this mean for databases, as well as database administrators? He says “Using the Cloud technology, I still feel I'm working as a database administrator, but with changing tasks.”
Are your day-to-day tasks changing too? How prepared are you?
Add data management skills in a Cloud environment to your Oracle Certified Associate or Professional credential.
See what’s required here Oracle Database Cloud Administrator Certification and be ready for any changes the cloud brings to your role.
Have you ever taken a beta exam? Or wondered why you even would? There are probably a few of us who would never even think of it. But, there are some real benefits to taking a beta.
Don’t be scared off of the number of questions! That’s in your favor too, because data collected from a beta exam helps ensure only the best (fair, clear) questions are used in the final test form. And, you are only scored on these best questions – not the poorest performing questions.
Interested? Here’s two beta exams to think about now.
|Exam||Release Date||Beta End Date (subject to change)||Who Should Take This Exam|
|1Z1-070 Oracle Exadata X5 Administration||June 30, 2016||October 31, 2016||DBA’s, O/S Admins with 12 to 18 months using Grid Infrastructure with ASM, RAC database, Exadata Storage Servers, and Linux.|
|1Z1-148 Oracle Database 12c: Advanced PL/SQL||August 15, 2016||October 31, 2016||PL/SQL Developers with 12 to 18 months in an
application development environment utilizing the SQL and PL/SQL languages.

I recently read a great article By Matthew Morris in GoCertify “More than Just Database: A Beginner's Guide to Oracle Certification “that I couldn’t help but share.
Matthew brings up some great points in his article:
There's lots of exciting things happening in Oracle University with new
training offerings, formats and exams.
Have you seen our announcement for Oracle Cloud Learning Subscriptions - Database Cloud Complete Edition? This subscription will help you learn about your Oracle Database Cloud service and how to use it so that you can gain the necessary skills to successfully administer your cloud databases as you transition to the Cloud.
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.
The new “Oracle Database 11g: Performance Tuning” certification exam (1Z0-054) is now live, which is a single exam requirement for Oracle 11g DBA OCPs to earn the Oracle Database 11g Performance Tuning Certified Expert (OCE) certification.
This certification endorses those database administrators, support engineers, and technical consultants who have demonstrated their knowledge and skills using Oracle Database 11g automatic tuning features, including SQL Tuning Advisor, SQL Access Advisor, Automatic Workload Repository and Automatic Database Diagnostic Monitor.
Candidates taking this exam at test centers will now receive their exam scores and pass/fail status immediately at the completion of their exam. Score reports have just been shipped to those candidates who participated in the beta period. If you participated in beta testing and did not yet receive your score report, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
