Oracle’s Workforce Development Program Gives Back to Veterans

The Oracle Workforce Development Program is a worldwide program offered by Oracle University. It gives individuals in the community more options to develop the knowledge and experience with Oracle technologies that will position them for success in their careers. Oracle’s Workforce Development program enables educational institutions and training partners to offer authorized Oracle training content as a part of existing certificate, diploma and degree programs. This makes it easier for more people to develop Oracle skills and earn credentials that will lead to career advancement.

Oracle University Provides Benefits for Military Veterans

On April 30, a new public-private partnership was announced by First Lady Michelle Obama that will enable thousands of service members to earn industry-recognized IT certifications before they transition from military service. Oracle was on site for this announcement at the White House - including Oracle University’s own Michelle Cross, who manages the Workforce Development Program for North America.

It appears this program never materialized? I cannot find any partners near me. Not even for online courses. I even checked my home state of record and my wife's, nothing available.

I am sorry to hear that you have not been able to find a partner near you. This program is active, but I think there may be an issue with the website look - up tool. I will raise this issue to the appropriate team so we can address. In the meantime, you can send an email to: to get help finding a partner.

@ Vishal,

Oracle Database 10g exams and certification paths retired on March 1, 2015.

However, regular training is available for this version of the product and you will receive a certificate of attendance.
