    So glad you're interested! If you're going to OOW or JavaOne, register through one of the links in the post. If you're not going to make it to OOW or JavaOne, start your journey by going to certification.oracle.com. You'll find all the info you need on certification there!

    Hi, i am a Bachelor's graduate from India. I would like to get Oracle certified. Can you please help me out with the courses I should take, if it is available online for free.
  • Brandye Williams Barrington Thursday, July 11, 2019
    Hi Odonel,
    I'm assuming that you're referring to the Database Administrator certification, so I'll provide info on that path.

    The latest Oracle Database certification is Oracle Database Administration 2019 Certified Professional. You can find the requirements to get certified on our website here - https://education.oracle.com/oracle-database-administration-2019-certified-professional/trackp_DB19COCP.

    On that page you'll be able to see that passing two exams is required to earn this certification. Clicking on each exam will take you to a page that shows you the exam topics and recommended training.

    There is no free training offered by Oracle, but the Oracle Database Administration Learning Subscription - https://education.oracle.com/oracle-database-administration-learning-subscription/ls_38560 - is a great option to prepare for these exams, and to prepare for a career as a Database Administrator.

    Additionally, once you purchase the learning subscription, you have access to continually updated training and hands on labs for 12 months. You also are able to take the exams at no additional cost.
