ORACLE PARTNERNETWORK SPECIALIST TESTING (for OPN Partners only)

W Hotel, Second Floor - Great Room 2

  • Monday 9:00am | 1:00pm
  • Wednesday 9:00am | 1:00pm

Don't miss your chance to get CERTIFIED onsite at Oracle OpenWorld! By taking any one of our Certified Implementation exams on site you can qualify for OPN Specialization. Below you will find all the exams available in Production and Beta, all will be available for examination. Beta exam vouchers will be available on-site and by request before the event (free of charge - numbers are limited).

Exams will take place on Monday, September 20th and Wednesday, September 22nd. There will be two sessions each day, starting at 9am and 1pm in the W Hotel, Second Floor - Great Room 2. Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis. We recommend that you arrive 30 minutes in advance of the scheduled start time as seating will be limited to 20 people for each exam.

TAKING A BETA EXAM

  • As a part of the Beta exam, each beta candidate must complete a brief demographic survey. The survey results are kept entirely confidential. Candidates' responses are compiled and used to calibrate the exam.
  • Beta exams contain more questions than the final version of the certification tests. Beta exams contain 175-200 questions compared with approximately 50-100 questions on a production exam.
  • Beta exams usually allow 3-3.5 hours for completion. With the higher number of questions, you may not have as much time to spend on each question of a beta exam as you will during the final exam. You also may not have as much time at the end of the exam to review your answers.
  • Feedback is integral to the beta testing process. We encourage candidates to include comments on specific exam questions. There is a feature in the test that will allow you to do this. You can add your comments as you are working through the exam, or you can mark specific questions and return to add your comments once you are finished answering the exam questions.
  • Beta Exams may only be taken once.

SCORING A BETA EXAM

  • You will only be scored on the questions that are chosen for the final exam.
  • Since you are graded only on the questions selected for the production version of the certification exam, it may take up to 10 weeks after the close of the beta period to receive your exam results from Pearson VUE.
  • Passing a beta exam is the same as passing a production exam. For example, if you were to pass all the beta versions of the exams required within an Oracle Certification path, you will earn your Oracle Certification credential and receive the certificate in the mail.

If you take a production exam, please allow 1.5 hours to complete. Depending upon which exam you choose, the cost will be $125 - $195. Partners will have the opportunity to apply their education discounts to these tests.
