On September 1, 2010, the Sun Certification program
will be integrated with the Oracle Certification program. All Java,
Oracle Solaris, MySQL, Oracle Solaris Cluster and Open Office
certifications will be re-published under the Oracle Certification
program with their new Oracle Certification titles.
What you need to know:
- The exam format and objectives for each of the exams will be the same as they were previously under Sun; hence there is no impact to those preparing to get certified.
- If you are currently holding a certification exam voucher for one of these exams, they will continue to be valid through their expiration date and can be redeemed.
- If you currently hold an existing Sun certification, your current Sun certification title will still be recognized under the Oracle certification program and will continue to be valid. You can upgrade your certification at any time to the latest technology release to receive an Oracle certification title.
- If you are in the process of preparing for a certification exam that you will take after September 1, 2010, you will receive an Oracle certification title and will have use of Oracle Certification Program logo for endorsement of your proven skill by Oracle Corporation.
Candidates taking exams between September 1-3 may see either Sun and/or Oracle-branded exam titles while registering and taking exams during this transition period. Note however that the exam number codes (i.e. CX-NNN) and the actual exam test questions and scoring will remain the same both before and after the transition. Additionally, candidates taking these exams starting on September 1 will earn Oracle-branded certifications, even if the exam taken contains the previous Sun title.
