Oracle to Retire Select Certification Exams on November 1

Guest Author

Oracle will retire several certification tracks
effective November 1, 2011. These certification tracks and their
associated exams currently have a low volume of traffic and/or have
significantly newer certification paths and hence the impact of their
retirement is expected to be minimal. Note that for existing
certification holders - this does not retire your certification, but
rather only suspends the delivery of any further exams; if you currently
hold a certification earned by one of these exams, your certificate
remains fully valid and is not affected.

    Dear Sir,

    I wanted to know what will be the expenditure for writing oracle r12 ap certification , what is the procedure for writing the exam.

    In gone through your web side no where any proper information is there for certification all the links are interlinked in other webside but I am not able to achieve what I am looking.

    Kindly explain in details each step wise.

    Thanks.

    I currently have Oracle 11 Procurement certification, if I do not sit the R11i exams before they are retired but want to prepare for R12 certification, will I still need to meet the 4 requirements?

    regards


  • brandye barrington Tuesday, July 26, 2011

    If you hold the certifciation Oracle Certified Financial Applications Consultant Rel 11 Procurement, then you will be able to upgrade to one of the R12 certifications by passing all of the exams in the desired R12 path. You will not be required to complete the training.

    rajeshzala


  • brandye barrington Wednesday, July 27, 2011

    Rajeshzala,

    You will need training to obtain either 11i or R12 Professional or Expert certifications. Are you asking if your 11i training will count toward the R12 certification? Unfortunately, no.

    Hi, are there any alternatives for Oracle Comms Billing and Revenue Management certification paths? Who may I talk to ?


  • brandye barrington Thursday, September 15, 2011

    Once these exams retire, there will be no alternative for the Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management exams and certifications. However, if you become certified before the retirement date, your certification will remain valid -- the only thing the retirement would mean for someone already certified is that there is no upgrade path and no one else would be able to obtain that certifiction. Retirement does not disqualify your certification.

    Hi,

    I was following the Oracle 11i Applications Database Administrator Certified Professional training. We still use 11i in the office and will likely for another year.

    My intention was to combine the 11g OCP with 1Z0-233 Oracle 11i Install, Patch and Maintain Applications to get 11i Apps DBA Professional.

    I will however not get my 11g OCP certification before the deadline.

    If I satisfy all the 11i requirements including passing the 1Z0-233 before the deadline will it still possible to obtain the 11i OCP when I become an 11g OCP after the deadline has passed?

    I'm not above begging...

    Thanks

    Ciarán


  • brandye barrington Wednesday, September 28, 2011

    Ciaran,

    If you pass the 233 exam before it expires, you should receive the 11i Apps DBA certification once you have achieved the 11g DBA OCP. You will need to be sure that you register for all of your exams under the same Pearson VUE account!

    Jayapalan. C


  • guest Monday, October 3, 2011

    Jayapalan,

    The OCP is not available in R12. You can become an Oracle Certified Expert in R12. Please have a look at the available certifications and requirements on our website at certification.oracle.com.

    Thank you Brandye you made my Day :-)


  • guest Thursday, October 27, 2011

    I've already completed exams for Oracle 11i Payables and also submitted the course form through Person Vue. The exams are already available in the CertView but the training submitted was not approved yet (submitted 2 days ago). Would I be impacted by the retirement in Oct-31?

    Thanks,

    TB


  • Brandye Barrington Friday, November 4, 2011

    TB,

    The retirement should not affect your certification. Just confirm that you submitted everything under the same Oracle Testing ID.

    Thanks and regards,

    K.T.Dhanasekaran


  • Brandye Barrington Friday, February 17, 2012

    Hello K.T.

    There are 3 versions of this certification available - SE 5, SE 6 and SE 7. Currently, none of these are slated for retirement. We typically announce retirements at least 3 months in advance, so you should be fine pursuing any version in March. That said, it is recommended that you follow the most recent version of certification, which is SE 7.

  • guest Friday, May 11, 2012

    I am from Nigerian and I am interested in writing the certification exam for 1Z0-215 (Oracle EBS R12 Financial Certified Expert Consultant,Payables),but most of the Oracle education partners are not running training on this certification track,the only one I found is still running training on 11i Financials. If I enrol with the education partner still running training on 11i, while I intend to write the exam for R12, will the training be acceptable as part of the requirement for completion of certification requirements? I am expecting your reply Mr. Brandye. Lucky.U
