Announcing the availability of a new Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) 2022 Architect Associate certification course and exam.

We have completely rehauled the Architect Associate course by adding 200+ new lessons and demos. With these updates, we have 142 lessons and 117 demos running for a total of ~27 hours, which speaks to the depth in which the core services are covered. OCI Architect Associate certification provides you with a competitive edge in the industry and is one of the most sought-after certifications in OCI, with hundreds of thousands of learners already enrolled.

Who is the OCI Architect Associate course designed for?

The course and certification are designed for Cloud Professionals, Solution Architects, and Solution Design Engineers who want to architect solutions on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. This course is intended for individuals who have atleast one year of hands-on experience in cloud computing, working knowledge of distributed systems, and familiarity with general networking concepts.

A sneak peek of the updated course

The course is designed to give you an in depth understanding of the core OCI constructs – Identity and Access Management, Networking, Compute, Storage, Database, Security & Observability and Management. These core OCI constructs are the building blocks for migrating existing apps or building new apps in the cloud, hence this course is a must have for cloud architects and developers. Let me quickly touch on the changes we made for the 2022 version of this course:

Oracle MyLearn: the training platform

If you’re already not aware, we offer a one-stop training and certification platform called Oracle MyLearn.  It provides  the training course, skill checks, exam prep, practice exam, online certification test, credentials, and more. It also provides an integrated learning experience where learners can move seamlessly from training to certification.

Here are some tips on how to get the most out of this platform:

  • Schedule breaks each hour and move around (don’t stay stationary in front of your computer).
  • Sign-up for an Oracle Cloud Free Tier account and play around with the console and navigation; get familiar with OCI platform and tools.
  • Complete the course. Go through the modules and skill checks in order. The modules and questions have been carefully designed and constructed to help you learn.
