Former Sun Certification History Now in CertView

Guest Author
Certification history for Java, Solaris (Cluster),
Oracle Solaris (Cluster), MySQL, NetBeans, and OpenOffice.org
Certifications is now available in CertView,
where you can access your certification history, download logos and
verify your certification(s) to a third party. Begin using CertView in
two easy steps:

  1. Create an Oracle Single Sign-On (SSO) if you do not already have one.
  2. Authorize your CertView account, using the following information from your Pearson VUE profile:
  • Full Name
  • Email Address
  • City
  • Oracle Testing ID

that you have three attempts to authorize your account. After three
unsuccessful attempts, your account will be queued for manual review.
You will receive confirmation from the review team within three business
days. It is thus very important that you enter your information exactly
as it is in your Pearson VUE profile so that you can start using
CertView right away.

If you have not yet created your Pearson VUE web
account, watch this video below on How to Create Your New Pearson VUE Account:

Watch our Oracle Certification CertView "overview" video below as well for step-by-step instructions on authorizing your CertView account:

If you still need further assistance, please contact suncert_ww@oracle.com.

I tried to enter my information three times and now I am locked out of the system. Can you help?
have three attempts to enter your information exactly as it is in your
Pearson VUE profile. After the third attempt, the account will be
referred to the Customer Service team for manual processing. You should
receive notification that your account has been authorized within three
business days.

I have gained access to my account, but I don't see any exams that I took at Prometric in my exam history.
has only uploaded "certification" history (not exam history) from
CertManager, except in cases where a candidate took a Part I exam at
Prometric and still needs to complete Part II. In those specific cases,
the exam history was uploaded so that the certification rules will be
activated once the remaining exam(s) have been completed. For all other
cases you will only see your certification history in CertView. From
this point on however - any exams that you take with Pearson VUE will
show up in your exam history in CertView.

I authorized my account with information from my Pearson VUE profile, but still cannot see my Sun Certification history.
you created your Pearson VUE web account, it's possible that (1) you
may have missed entering your Prometric ID, or (2) Pearson VUE may have
been unable to match your new web account with one of the records that
were migrated from CertManager. In either of those cases, you would have
been issued a new Oracle Testing ID. If you have an Oracle Testing ID
that is different from your Prometric ID, your records are not under the
same profile. You will need to request for Pearson VUE to merge these
two IDs. Go to pearsonvue.com/oracle/idmerge
and submit the merge request. If you have authorized your CertView
account using your Oracle Testing ID, you should request for this ID to
be the 'Surviving ID.' If you need assistance, please contact suncert_ww@oracle.com.

    Java Certification Exams and Their Move to Pearson VUE

    Posted by brandye barrington on June 28, 2011 at 08:29 AM PDT

    After four weeks of unacceptable delay my certification history is incomplete. Exams taken with Prometric on May 30th are not even shown!. Which excuse this time?. Congratulations for such a great work Oracle!. Long life to Sun.

  • guest Monday, July 11, 2011

    How Prometric ID merge to Oracle Testing ID?

  • brandye barrington Monday, July 11, 2011

    As stated in the blog post above, exam history was not uploaded to CertView, except in cases where a candidate had completed a Part I exam at Prometric and still needs to complete the Part II exam at Pearson VUE. If you are in this category and your Part I exam does not show up in your CertView exam history, please contact suncert_ww@oracle.com and they will assist you with getting this sorted.

    Regarding IDs: If you created your Pearson VUE web account without entering your Prometric ID, you probably now have 2 IDs. In order to get the two merged, you need to contact Pearson VUE at pearsonvue.com/oracle/idmerge.

  • fc Tuesday, July 12, 2011

    Same as the first comment: I had part 1 in the old cert space, and took part 2 on May 31th at prometric. Both are shown on prometric. I created a pearson with the prometric id (SRxx). Nothing shows up in pearson. Certview auth totally failed (pearson screen data side to side, copy/paste!). I requested a (re-?)merge. I'm totally disappointed.

  • brandye barrington Wednesday, July 13, 2011


    Pearson VUE will only show exam history for exams taken at Pearson VUE. CertView will not contain exam history for Sun and Oracle exams taken at Prometric, unless a candidate is only mid-way through a multi-exam path. If you took both of your exams at Prometric, these exams will not show in your CertView history. If your CertView authorization failed, as mentioned in the post above, your account will be queued for manual review and authorization. You should hear from the support team within 5 business days.

    I pass Solaris 10 part I at Prometric and part II at Pearson VUE (07/02/2011 mm/dd/yyyy), but I don't see my Solaris Success Kit in CertView.

    I contact suncert_ww@oracle.com but no reply.


  • tofuninjah Thursday, July 14, 2011

    I'm in the same boat fc. I took first part april, the second may 15th. Both of them at Prometric. Exam I shows up in Certview, but not exam II. I give up.

  • brandye barrington Friday, July 15, 2011

    If you passed Part I at Prometric and Part II at Pearson VUE, and you are not seeing both exams and your certification in your CertView record, one of two things may be the issue.

    1) First, do you have two IDs? If you did not enter your Prometric ID when you created your Pearson VUE web account, you may have been issued a new Oracle Testing ID. Login to your Pearson VUE web account to see what your Oracle Testing ID is. If it does not match your Prometric ID, then you have 2 IDs and you need to submit a request to have them merged at pearsonvue.com/oracle/idmerge.

    2) If you took both exams under the same ID, you Prometric exam may not have uploaded properly for some reason. Contact suncert_ww@oracle.com and provide as much information as possible: exam, date taken, Prometric ID. It can take up to 3 business days to receive a response.

  • Lohengrin Monday, July 18, 2011

    My certification history is still incomplete. I received an email from OCP Team promising that I would be able to access to the whole history by mid July. I can't see the whole certification history yet.

    "Exams conducted on last week of May 2011 are suffering a slight delay in the transfer process. We expect that all records will be uploaded by mid July 2011. You will be able to view your certification history, download your logos and verify your certification to a 3rd party at that time".

    What does Oracle think "slight" mean?. How long do we have to wait this time?. How long does it takes to migrate a DB?. I offer my services to Oracle if they need help...

    P.D.: In my company someone would had been fired so long ago...

  • brandye barrington Monday, July 18, 2011


    You should check your account at certview.oracle.com to ensure that you have completed all the steps to become certified and that your certification shows up in your record. There are suggested steps in CertView to request a reship of your certificate.

    When registering a new user for Oracle cert manager, it shows "Business Phone" and "Company" as required fields. Those should not be required fields.

    What if I am a undergraduate student or MSc student, or I have resigned from my previous job and applying for new jobs after some time. You should have consider those use cases before deciding what are the required fields etc.

  • Firas Tahir Wednesday, July 20, 2011

    Hi brandye barrington

    I`m also Pursuing Oracle Solaris OCP Certificate , I passed Part I at Prometric and Part II at Pearson VUE , and I did the ID Merge successfully but the Part I Exam is not uploaded to Certview so far and as a result I wasn't recognized as OCP Certified , you may find the suncert_ww@oracle.com response below

    (Please note currently you will not be able to the Part I exam in the exam history tab. Once you pass the Part II exam, your credentials will be updated in Certification Status tab.

    We apologize for the inconvenience caused)

    so is this a professional work , they are asking me to redo an exam that cost me $300 and I passed in it two years ago ,and for the ID Merge process it happened correctly as I had another exam for SUN that was imported to certview successfully but not the solaris part I exam

    please help

  • guest Thursday, July 21, 2011

    Took and passed the Sun Solaris Admin Part 1 from Prometric in 2009, it's not showing on Oracle Certview under Exams. I am taking the part 2 on Pearson Vue tomorrow and I'm scared that it will not merge with the 1st one since it's not on Oracle's Certview.

  • ts Saturday, July 23, 2011

    I'm guest in post #6. This is OCP Team answer (07/18/2011): "Kindly note that your Oracle Certified Professional, Oracle Solaris 10 System Administrator will be processed in the coming weeks. There will be a slight delay in processing the success kits due to the transition."

    But now I still can't see any update in certview yet.

    When will this slight delay finish?

  • guest Monday, July 25, 2011

    Hi there ts,

    I´ve had the same reply since I first checked that my certification history was incomplete in the new Certview app. The last answer that I got from suncert_ww on July 22 "kindly informs me that my certification history will be updated and my success kit processed in 2 weeks".

    It seems that "slight" also means "undefined" ,"no clue", or "whenever" in the Oracle language.

    An unacceptable delay and a complete disaster from Oracle.

  • guest Wednesday, July 27, 2011

    Hello, This is Sudeep Agarwal commenting from India. I have given my SCJP(CX310-065)exam on 31st May 2011 through Prometric and followed every procedure there was to follow and still cannot access my certification history and status. I have already created my Pearson vue account with the same ID as of Prometric and evrything has been done successfully accept that its not showing anything except my Demographic information in my CertView Account. Its been more than 10 days and I need my certificate as soon as possible.. Plzzz Help...!!!

  • guest Wednesday, July 27, 2011


    Please contact suncert_ww@oracle.com. They should be able to assist. It seems that there are 2 issues here: 1)your certification is not showing in CertView and 2) you have not received your certificate. The support team will be able to have a look and determine why your certification is not showing in CertView. Regarding your certificate, I believe that there was a delay in shipping certificates during the transition. They should be able to look at your specific account and give you an estimate for when you should receive your certificate.

  • Lohengrin Wednesday, July 27, 2011

    Brandye, suncert_ww is kindly informing everyone that there is a slight delay in transition process for exams conducted on last week of May 2011. This is all you will get from them, and a couple of months later the issue remains the same.

    Some questions arise...

    Where is Mr. Paul Sorensen (Oracle Certification director)?.

    Doesn't he fancy a nice post with a video to explain this disaster?.

    Do Oracle plan any kind of compensation?.

    I read that the new deadline for Certview exam history update was settled in two weeks from July 22. Any truth in that?.


  • ts Thursday, July 28, 2011

    Dear all,

    My certificate was finally shown in certview yesterday. I hope everyone is also updated in the shortest time.

  • brandye barrington Wednesday, August 3, 2011


    I am unsure of why your account was unable to authorize. If you have 2 IDs, this would be part of the problem. My suggestion is - go ahead and try again to authorize your account. If you have 3 failed attempts, your account will be sent to the support team to be processed manually. They will provide a resolution within 3 business days.

    You should also ensure that you have only one ID. If you have a Prometric ID and an Oracle Testing ID, you should request to have these IDs merged at personvue.com/oracle/idmerge.

    If you need assistance with this process, please contact suncert_ww@oracle.com. Before you contact suncert though, you should go ahead and use all of your attempts to authorize your CertView account so that your account will be referred to them. We apologize for the nature of this process, but once you have made it through this, your account will be easily accessible.

We now have the logos in other formats and we are working with the development team to get these additional formats uploaded to CertView. In the mean time, if you need a logo in a different format, please contact suncert_ww@oracle.com and they will be able to assist.

    hi Brandye,

    I read the complete blog and your valuable comments. thanks ! Almost all, of my doubts are already cleared after reading this blog.

    But I do have one doubt and I am in need of your urgent help..

    I completed my "Oracle Java Enterprise Edition 5 Web Component Developer Certified Professional" on 28th June, 2011. But so far I didn't receive the certification kit. I need to show the certificate to my manager. But as per Oracle Policy, I will receive the certification kit in 45 days. I agree and no problem with that !

    But, would like to know.. is there any other way, I can see my certificate on-line ( not the score card ) so that, I can show the soft copy to my manager. that would really help me !

    Please help to know the solution.

    I have shown the score card.. but I need Certificate (anything .. if Hard copy is not possible then, soft copy will work )

    thanks in advance !


  • brandye barrington Wednesday, August 17, 2011

    Hi Vinit,

    In your CertView account, you can publish your credential to your manager. Go to the 'Publish Credential to a 3rd Party' tab and select the certification that you want to verify. You will enter the email address of the person(s) who needs verification. Your manager will receive two emails - one with a unique URL and one with a password. He will use these to access the official online verification of your certification.

  • brandye barrington Wednesday, August 31, 2011

    Regarding your score sheet, you can print the score report on the Pearson VUE website at pearsonvue.com/oracle. However, you should be aware that you score report may not be used to imply certification under any circumstance. The only items you may use for proof of certification are the official Oracle Certificate, The official Oracle Certification ID card (if one was included in your success kit) or verification through CertView (certview.oracle.com).

    @Ginni, If you are not an employee of an Oracle PartnerNetwork company, simply skip that part of the registration process. If you need assistance setting up your Pearson VUE web account, you can call Pearson VUE pearsonvue.com/oracle/contact.

    I am in the certification process to get the OCMJD. I already finished the assignment project and some minutes ago I tried to upload my solution through the Pearson Vue site, but when I clicked on the button to continue with the essay and upload my jar file an error appears in the Pearson web page, the assignment went automatically to Taken status with no posibility to upload my solution. When I click on the link to request my score a PDF file is downloaded with a C# error trace as content.

    I am in a hurry since the deadline to finish with the certification path under the old Sun schema is next September 30. I already send a mail to Pearson support, is there some help that I could get from Oracle side? I will really appreciate it.


  • brandye barrington Wednesday, September 28, 2011

If you are looking at CertView and see the exams in your exam history, but the certification does not show in your certification history, please contact suncert_ww@oracle.com.

    please update my database informations.

    please help me.

  • Brandye Barrington Thursday, November 17, 2011

    Hi Megha,

    It looks like you have ended up with two IDs. You will need to request for Pearson VUE to merge the two IDs at pearsonvue.com/oracle/idmerge. Approximately 48 hours after you have recieved confirmation that the accounts have been merged, CertView will show the updated information. The reason that your Web Component Developer certification has not yet been granted is that your earlier certification is under on e ID (SRXXXXX) and your Web Compenent Developer exam is under a different ID (OCXXXXX), so the database does not recognize you as the same person.

    Once you merge the IDs, all of your records will show under the same account CertView and the certification will be granted. Two additional notes: 1) Only exams that you took at Pearson VUE will show in your Pearson VUE exam history. 2) For certifications received and exams taken through Sun, only certification history will show in CertView, exam history for Sun exams taken prior to May 2011 will not show in CertView.

    Please clearify it.



  • Brandye Barrington Wednesday, April 25, 2012


    Yes, your Prometric ID is valid. You will need to provide your testing ID as well as your information as it was in your Prometric account in order to create your Pearson VUE web account and have it associated with your prior ID. You may be better off in this situation to call Pearson VUE for assistance - to ensure that your account is set up properly and you are not assigned a new ID.

    I have managed to get my Sun certificate shown up in CertView.

    The 1st video did not work for me, here's how I did it:

    1. During the Pearson VUE registration, I chose "NO" for "previous test history" (which is different from the video). I tried "YES" first time but it didn't work out in the end.

    2. For name, email, address, telephone and everything else, I used exactly the same info as in Prometric.

    3. When my Pearson account is created, I can see my Prometric ID been used as the oracle test ID.

    4. I then go to Oracle CertView, created an oracle account, and authorized my account using the oracle test ID, full name and city etc.

    5. Now in CertView, I can see all my previous Sun certificates

    Hope someone finds this useful.

    Thanks for your comments. I would caution other users to follow the video steps to avoid creating a new testing ID which will only cause problems in the long run. Glad you got your account set up correctly and are up and running.

    I had completed sun certification via pro metric in 2007. Following the video above i created a pearson vue account by giving my prometric candidate ID. But an account with a new Oracle Testing ID was created.

    Next, I went to CertView and tried to authorize my account using this ID but failed after 3 attempts.

    Oracle then fixed the issue and I was able to login to CertView and also able to see my previous sun certification. But the ID shown here is the prometric ID.

    Please let me know if I need to merge the two IDs and which ID should be used for scheduling future tests.



  • Brandye Barrington Tuesday, July 10, 2012

    Hi Sandeep,

    You'll definitely need to merge the two IDs. You can do so at pearsonvue.com/oracle/idmerge. Since your CertView account is set up under your Prometric ID, it is best if you select your Prometric ID as the "surviving ID" when you contact Pearson VUE.

    I have completed my 1ZO-007 Introduction to Oracle-9i:SQL certification in March-2011. the test was unproctored. please tell me how to get the certification history.

  • Brandye Barrington Thursday, August 2, 2012


    If you only passed the 007 exam, you are not certified and you will not yet have a Certification History. This exam is the first exam in the path of several certifications. You can view your exam history at certview.oracle.com. You will need to go to certification.oracle.com to choose the certification you wish to pursue and see the certification requirements.

    Good luck on your path.

    I'm trying to find a site online to verify my SCJP. Oracle now owns Sun/Java. I've searched until I'm blue in the face(actually red). Can someone advise where to do this. It's not Personvu. Thanks.

  • Brandye Barrington Friday, August 17, 2012

    Hi Brian,

    You can go to certview.oracle.com. Just be sure that you don't have more than one Oracle Testing ID. When you created your Pearson VUE account, did you enter your Prometric ID? Did Pearson VUE send you a new ID? If they did not, then you're golden. If they did, then you have 2 IDs and you'll need to contact Pearson at pearsonvue.com/oracle/idmerge in order to get the IDs merged and ensure that all of your records are under one account.

    i need not receive mail from oracle about end date thus i missed my exams what i should do now??

  • Brandye Barrington Tuesday, September 4, 2012

    I'm not 100% sure what you mean. Did you complete one or more exams in a multi-exam path and now the remaining exams in your path have been retired?

    I have done my OCJP on 11th july 2012 and I have completed all the requirement which are necessary for the success kit.but i have not received my success kit yet.

    Please help me on this...

  • guest Wednesday, October 10, 2012

    Hi Bharat,

    You should visit certview.oracle.com to see if all of your requirements are recorded in your history. It is very possible that you may have completed components of your certification requirements under different IDs. There will be instructions in the Certification Status>Certification history tab to follow up on your certification success kit.

  • T Rob Darrough Thursday, February 7, 2013

    Why would anyone not want their certification status to be publicly viewable? There is no sensible case for making the information private. The reason for certification is to prove ones competence to third parties. If an HR rep cannot verify what is stated on a resume then what is the value in having it on ones resume? If certification cannot be verified quickly with common information such as name or SSN then it has no value.

  • Brandye Barrington Thursday, February 7, 2013

    T Rob,

    We have actually put that power directly in your hands. You can provide verification of your certification to whomever you wish through CertView. Go to certview.oracle.com, select the Publish Credentials to 3rd Parties tab and follow the instructions.

    The value of certification is more than a piece of paper. Much of the value of certification comes from the intensive time spent preparing for your certification exam. The breadth and depth of knowledge and skills that you develop during this process is the main value in getting certified.

    when i login to (www.pearsonvue.com) my History says i have not previously taken any exams.

    Please i seriously need your help, so i can receive my certificate...

    Thanks Stephen

  • Brandye Barrington Thursday, May 9, 2013


    You should go to certview.oracle.com to view your exam and certification history. A couple of things may be the issue here - 1) you may have taken your exams at Prometric, so Pearson VUE would not have a record of them. Or, you may have taken exams under different Oracle Testing IDs. Start with CertView.

  • Matheus Tuesday, December 10, 2013


    In 2007 I passed the exam of the SCJA certification when Java still was with Sun Microsystens ...

    Recently, I created an account with my email in certview.oracle.com, but when trying to retrieve my 2007 certification from Sun in the Oracle Certview system i had put my Oracle account in manual process, probably because i haven't entered some information as it was in Sun systens ..

    Can someone help me to recover this Sun's certification in the new system of certifications from Oracle? Note: The email suncert_ww@oracle.com isn't working anymore

    I have passed SCJP in 2007, can I get my results added to Oracle CertView

    Please advise.



  • guest Wednesday, April 15, 2015

    Hi Srinivas,

    Your records are in CertView. Here is how you will access:

    - Go to pearsonvue.com/oracle and create an account.

    - You will need to enter your Prometric ID, which will become your Oracle Testing ID.

    -- If Pearson assigns you a new Oracle Testing ID, you will need to have contact them and have them merge the new ID with your Prometric ID right away - pearsonvue.com/oracle/idmerge.

    - At least one hour after creating your Pearson VUE acccount, you will need to authenticate your CertView account at certview.oracle.com. You will need the email address and Oracle Testing ID from your Pearson VUE profile to authenticate your CertView account.

    You could also contact Pearson VUE pearsonvue.com/oracle/contact for assistance creating your new account.

    I have lost my sun Solaris certificate? I taken the exam on 01-31-2009.

    Please help me to recover.

  • guest Wednesday, May 20, 2015


    You can access your certificate for printing and download in certview.oracle.com. You'll need to create an account at pearsonvue.com/oracle and then you'll need to authenticate your account at certview.oracle.com - using the email address and Oracle Testng ID from your account at Pearson VUE.

    I have passed SCJP and SCWCD in 2008. I passed them form Different test centers in India. I have hard copies from SUN. I wonder how do I reflect them in CertView???

    Thank you in advance,


  • guest Tuesday, June 2, 2015


    When you created your Pearson VUE account, did Pearson assign you a new Oracle Testing ID? If so, you'll need to have your IDs merged.

    I would suggest that you contact Pearson VUE pearsonvue.com/oracle/contact to get assistance with ensuring all your exam records are under one account.

    Hi Brandye,

    Your answers to the queries posted to everyone, helped me to restore my 2007 SCJP certification. Appreciate your effect.

    I followed exactly your steps.


    Here is how you will access:

    - Go to pearsonvue.com/oracle and create an account.

    - You will need to enter your Prometric ID, which will become your Oracle Testing ID.

    -- If Pearson assigns you a new Oracle Testing ID, you will need to have contact them and have them merge the new ID with your Prometric ID right away - pearsonvue.com/oracle/idmerge.

    - At least one hour after creating your Pearson VUE acccount, you will need to authenticate your CertView account at certview.oracle.com. You will need the email address and Oracle Testing ID from your Pearson VUE profile to authenticate your CertView account.




  • guest Friday, August 19, 2016

    For the first time in 16 years an employer is looking for my Java 1.1 SCP Certificate. I took the exam in 2000. Is there any way they can find a record of it online

  • Brandye Barrington Thursday, August 25, 2016

    I think that your certification should be in CertView.

    Here is how you will access:

    - Go to pearsonvue.com/oracle and create an account.

    - You will need to enter your Prometric ID, which will become your Oracle Testing ID.

    -- If Pearson assigns you a new Oracle Testing ID, you will need to have contact them and have them merge the new ID with your Prometric ID right away - pearsonvue.com/oracle/idmerge.

    -- If you don't know your testing ID, I recommend that you contact Pearson to assist with account set up - www.pearsonvue.com/oracle/contact.

    - At least one hour after creating your Pearson VUE acccount, you will need to authenticate your CertView account at certview.oracle.com. You will need the email address and Oracle Testing ID from your Pearson VUE profile to authenticate your CertView account.

    Once all this is done, you should be able to view and print your certificate as well as send verification of your certification to the employer via email.
