Introducing the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Foundations Certification

Rohit Rahi
Senior Director, Product Management, OCI

I’m excited to announce a new Foundations certification for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Our existing certifications provide role-based learning paths for solution architects, cloud administrators, and developers. With the Foundations certification, we now also have a learning path for individuals with nontechnical backgrounds, such as those involved in selling or procuring cloud solutions. We think this new content is a great place to start for people learning about the business impact of cloud, or those who want to take a first step toward more technical certification.

Certification Details

The Foundations certification is intended for individuals who want to demonstrate fundamental knowledge of public cloud services provided by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. This certification is for business users, as well as those with a technical background, who want to validate their foundational-level knowledge of core Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services. The certification exam doesn’t require any hands-on technical experience, and this certification isn’t a prerequisite for any other Oracle Cloud certifications.

The Foundations certification exam is 105 minutes long, contains 60 questions, and is currently available in English only. You can review the exam topics and schedule an exam with Pearson VUE.

To help you prepare for the certification, we’re making the full coursework and study guides available free of charge. The course covers relevant exam topics, including:

  • General cloud concepts
  • Architecture (regions, availability domains, fault domains, compartments)
  • Core services (Networking, Compute, Storage, Database, Identity)
  • Security
  • Pricing and billing

Go to the Foundations certification coursework page on Oracle University.

At any time, you can assess your readiness by taking a practice exam, also available free of charge. To learn more about the various Oracle Cloud Infrastructure certification and training content, visit our training and certification website.

We’d love to hear your feedback. Send us an email at oci-enablement_us_grp@oracle.com.

Keep learning and be great at it!

    Nice and very welcome program!

    However, I cannot access the student guide. It rejects the attempt with an "Authorization Required" message and routes me the education.oracle.com site.
  • Mojtaba Mohammadi Sunday, April 19, 2020

    How can I access the student guide? It is asking for subscription.

    Thanks for replying.

    I wasn't able to get the student guide either. The website makes me log in into the Oracle University website. I look for the student guide on the university website, and it is not there.

    Hi, I can not access the student guide, can you please help me?
  • Karthik Tuesday, May 5, 2020
    Student guide access and test options prompts with an "Authorization Required" message. I hope student study guides and testings are also included as free of cost part of this program.
  • Ashok Kumar Wednesday, May 6, 2020
    Unable to access the student guide? asking for subscription. Is online course enough to pass certification exam.

    I tried signing up for the exam several times and was unable to get a slot.

    Tried earlier today and now the free offer seems to have been taken out as its not visible on the 'pearsonsvue' exam catalogue, i guess the slots are all taken. Hope this is re-introduced soon as its ideal for sales teams.
