    hi,

    I have completed my B.Tech and I want to start my career with oracle. Can you please suggest me the certifications which is best for me now.

    my contact no is- 9990931336

    Thank you.


  • kate Thursday, September 4, 2014

    Apparao,

    I would suggest that you begin by having a look at our website certification.oracle.com. On the home page you can sort by product or job role, or you could select the View All Certifications link and see all the certifications that are currently available. When you click on a certification, you will be taken to a page where you can see the requirements to obtain the certification. If you click on the required exam(s), you will be taken to an exam details page. Reviewing the exam topics on the exam details page will give you a good idea of the duties and job role you can expect to fulfill with that particular certification. Once you have selected a certification path, please contact Oracle Certification Support if you have any further questions.

    Thanks

    Kate


  • Kate Thursday, September 4, 2014

    Devendra,

    This decision depends largely on what you are interested in, what skills you already have and what jobs are available in your area, among other factors. I suggest that you start by having a look at our website certification.oracle.com to see what certifications are available. Another good resource is the Oracle Certification Forum. Once you have narrowed your options a little, let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thanks

  • Arnob Tuesday, October 7, 2014

    I'm preparing for OCJP but need some help in choosing the right certification path that'll provide me maximum entry level career opportunities in the IT/Software industry.

    Path 1- Step 1: 1Z0-803

    Step 2: 1Z0-804

    Path 2- Step 1: 1Z0-803

    Step-2: 1Z0-858

    I'm not sure if path 2 is valid or not.


  • Kate Wednesday, October 22, 2014

    Arnob,

    Congratulations on your decision to pursue certification. In order to earn the Java Web Component Developer certification, you will first need to earn the Java Programmer oracle Certified Professional (OCP) certification. In order to earn the Java SE 7 Programmer OCP certification, you will first need to earn the Java SE 7 Programmer Certified Associate (OCA) certification. So, here is the path you should

    take:

    1. Pass exam 1Z0-803 = earn Java SE 7 Programmer OCA 2. Pass exam 1Z0-804 = earn Java SE 7 Programmer OCP 3. Pass exam 1Z0-858 = earn Java EE 5 Web Component Developer

    I might recommend that you pursue the Java EE 6 Web Component Developer certification instead of the EE 5 version though - exam 1Z0-899. It is a more current version of the certification.

    Thanks

    Kate


  • guest Thursday, October 23, 2014

    Hello Kate,

    Thank you very much for your information. This is exactly what I was looking for. Really appreciate it..:)

    I have no idea how I missed 1Z0-899 and landed on 1Z0-858 instead.

    Thanks again,


  • Rajesh Monday, November 10, 2014

    I am working as a Trainee Engineer in Pvt. Company I want to move into oracle so which certification is best for me??


  • Kate Monday, November 10, 2014

    Hi Rajesh,

    If you are looking to work with the Oracle Database, we would recommend starting with the Oracle Database SQL Certified Expert certification and follow that certification path.

    Thanks

    Kate


  • guest Friday, November 21, 2014

    Dear Kate,

    I am Virendra, and I'm looking forward to earn Java Professional certification and more. But I'm little confused with whether to go directly for "1Z0-851" or go through "1Z0-803" followed by "1Z0-804". And I also came to know that Java SE8 certification exam is also out.

    So, please help me with which one will be a good decision taking 2015 into consideration so that I can get good job opportunities.

    Thank you.


  • Michael Saturday, November 22, 2014

    I am a third year Computer Science major and the primary language I've learned is Java. I want to get into E-Commerce, Software Development, App Dev, Database, and have some security in there as well but all leading towards managing. I've been looking on oracle to try and find the right path but I have no idea where to start and not sure if going down one path would block off others also, not knowing what each area really does.

    Michael


  • guest Sunday, November 23, 2014

    I am a third year Computer Science student. I want to get into Java Development but not sure what area I want to be in (i.e E-Commerce, Apps, Software Dev., etc..) Is there a jumping point certification that I can obtain to get me into the field and gain some experience and then decide a more specific path.

    Thank you


  • azam Tuesday, December 2, 2014

    I would like to know the certified institute names in Bangalore.


  • Kate Tuesday, December 2, 2014

    Michael:

    The best place to start with Java is the Java Programmer OCA certification. You can start with Java SE 6, 7 or 8. Our recommendation is always to go for the latest version of certification, but you should carefully evaluate which version you wish to pursue. Good luck with your certification path!

    - Kate


  • Kate Tuesday, December 2, 2014

    Virendra:

    851 is the Java SE 6 version of certification. 803 and 804 lead to the Java SE 7 version. Then, of course there is the Java SE 8 version. We typically recommend that you go for the latest version of certification, but you should carefully evaluate which version you wish to pursue. Let us know if you have further questions - otherwise, best of luck with your certification path!

    thanks

    Kate


  • Kate Tuesday, December 2, 2014

  • swetha Sunday, December 7, 2014

    Hi

    I have done BE(E&CE) but interested in programming so i turned to java.

    Now i m good in core java but want to become oracle certified java programmer/professional.I have seen oracle web site and got confused(se6,7,ee,me) to choose!

    Please guide me in correct way,i have niit certificate for core java.Is this certificate sufficient enough??because they mentioned sun certified is necessary to take some exams.Pls clarify & help me to choose correct.

    Regards

    Swetha.


  • guest Wednesday, December 10, 2014

    Since Java SE 8 test is available for OCA is it wise to get it even though it is not yet available for OCP or OCM. Is there a planned date that SE 8 will be available for those certifications as well.


  • Kate Wednesday, December 24, 2014

    Nidhi, thanks for your question. Depending on what jobs you are looking for, you could pursue either a certification in Java or SQL or PL/SQL. It may be good to look at job postings to see what skills the companies you may be interested in are hiring for or open up more options by having certifications in both areas.

    For Java, we recommend starting with the Java SE 7 Associate certification and proceeding to the Professional level, Here is a link to the path for that: https://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=653&get_params=p_id:155#tabs-2-1

    For Database Development, we would suggest starting with the sQL and PL/SQL certifications: https://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=653&get_params=p_id:228#tabs-1

    Please let us know if you have further questions and good luck!

    Kate


  • Kate Monday, December 29, 2014

    In response to your question on the Java SE 8 exams: Java SE 8 OCP exam is coming very soon. We recommend that you go ahead and get Java SE 8 OCA so that you will be ready to move on to OCP when the exam is released.

    thanks

  • Arnob Saturday, January 31, 2015

    Passed 1Z0-803 Java SE 7 Programmer I today...however, I still might have a long way to go. Please let me know if I can expect questions from topics that were included in 1Z0-803 in 1Z0-804 Java SE 7 Programmer II exam?

    I posted here before please check for reference.

    Thanks & Best Regards,


  • Brandye Saturday, January 31, 2015

    Raghu,

    Those are good questions that may be better addressed directly by your peers in the Certification industry and the Linux field. We, of course, see value in the Linux Administrator certifications. Through various surveys and studies over the years (Robert Half, Gartner, Certification Magazine, etc.), Certification has been shown to improve career options, improve salary and improve job performance among other benefits. One of the biggest benefits of certification is that it helps you become better at your job as you move through mastering each of the exam topics during your exam preparation. You may be exposed to concepts that you may not have otherwise encountered, or you may find solutions that you would not have come up with on your own.

    Largely, certification is a personal decision based on the job market in your area and the time and money you are able to invest. In general, certification definitely helps most people move forward in their careers.

    You can get comments from people who are certified and also get recommendations for training centers in your area by posting this question on our Oracle Certification Forum http://bit.ly/Lt5vhm.

    thanks,

    Brandye


  • Kate Saturday, January 31, 2015

    There are many certifications to choose from to help you get started in your career. Which one to choose depends on the type of job you are looking for and the skills that you have.

    Arnob,

    Guest (March 06 2015: Java SE is the shortcut for Java Standard Edition and it’s the basic Java environment that lets you develop and deploy Java applications on desktops and servers. New features have been added with each release, the latest being Java SE 8: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/8-whats-new-2157071.html .

    Here is where you can find more details about this course: http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=609& get_params=dc:D61762GC30,p_preview:N&sc=EMEAOU14057311MPP002C011

    Do let me know if you need any further information.


  • Adriana Friday, May 29, 2015

    @Amruth,

    There is no selection process when signing up for the first level of Oracle Certification, however my advise is to check out the topics prior to registering for the exam. If you don’t feel prepared to take the exam, you should check out the recommended training that is showing up on each exam details page: http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=651#2

    @cdenny,

    It really depends from one company to another one, however everyone will end up upgrading to the latest version and many of the 12c features are going to become very important in the next years. One option is to get certified now in 11g and take the 12c upgrade exam later.

    Hope this helps.

    @kevit,

    Which Java version are you interested in getting certified? I suggest that you start by having a look at the page below to see what exams are available for Java SE, EE and ME:

    http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/ou_product_category.getFamilyPage?p_family_id=48&p_mode=Certification&sc=WWOU15043959MPP001C007

    Once you have narrowed your options, let me know if you have any further

    questions.

    @ guest (June 17, 2015),

If you want to continue your career as a DBA and demonstrate you have a solid understanding of your job role and Oracle Database, I suggest you think about pursuing Oracle certifications.

    If you want to pursue a career as an Oracle DBA it's best if you start with the documentation - specifically, the Oracle 12c Database Concepts guide: http://docs.oracle.com/database/121/CNCPT/toc.htm

    Then take a class - the Oracle 12c Administration Workshop to get experience in handling the database: http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=609&get_params=dc:D78846,clang:EN&p_org_id=897698183&lang=US&sc=WWOU15043959MPP001C007

  • Adriana Wednesday, September 23, 2015

    @ karthidhar (September 23, 2015):

    The best place to start with Java is the Java Programmer OCA certification. You can start with Java SE 6, 7 or 8. Our recommendation is always to go for the latest version of certification, but you should carefully evaluate which version you wish to pursue.

    Here is a link to the path for Java SE: https://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/ou_product_category.getPage?p_cat_id=267#tabs-3

  • Adriana Monday, October 26, 2015

    @ guest (October 25, 2015) ,

    Thanks for your question. To earn the Oracle Database 12c Administrator Certified Associate Certification you need to successfully complete 2 steps.

    First step - you need to pass one SQL exam (either 1Z0-061 or 1Z0-051 or 1Z0-047). It's up to you which one you choose. As a recommendation, it's better if you check out the exam topics for each of these before registering.

    Second step - you will need to pass exam 1Z0-062 .

    For more information please, check out this page here: https://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=653&get_params=p_id:248#tabs-2&sc=WWOU15043959MPP001C007

    I have bad academic record i wanted to know that does after completing reputed certification in oracle am i capable to get job like database administrator or any database job.

    i'll try my level best in oracle certification and gain practical knowledge but still i have fear that my bad academic record can reflect to my job!

    does anyone can suggest me what should i need to do?

    sorry for poor kind of English!


  • Brandye Barrington Thursday, August 25, 2016

    Hi,

    I'm not really able to comment on your academic record and how it will affect your getting a job. I can tell you that surveys have shown that if you work hard to earn your certification by study and practice, your job chances are higher. Your job chances are also higher if you go ahead and move on to OCP rather than stopping at OCA.

    Good luck with your certification!

    Brandye Barrington

    I am advanced in Excel, self taught. I build my own templates. I do have a certificate now in Advance Excel. I did a BSc Access course in Statistics. Not much education afterwards.

    I want to go into Data Analysis for my next career move. To follow my passion in analyzing data .

    Can you point me on the right direction as to which SQL certificate I should take to help me? I see a lot of Data Analysis post need SQL. Where do I start?

    Regards

    Noxy


  • guest Tuesday, October 18, 2016

    Hi Deepthu,

    This is a question best answered by you. It depends largely on where you're headed with your career and what your interests are. I will let you know that there are no current plans to update the APEX certification, so you may have more opportunity for future upgrades by pursuing the PL/SQL certification if you're choosing between the two. The future of PL/SQL certification is a little more solid than the future of APEX certification.

    Regards,

    Brandye Barrington


  • Brandye Barrington Thursday, October 20, 2016

    Hi Noxy,

  • guest Monday, December 26, 2016

    hello Brandye,

    I was going through the certification.oracel.com website to explore carrier options with oracle.

    I have some doubt regarding the same. I believe that you could help me.

    1) Right now, I am working in TCS as system administrator, but I want to change the domain and want to start my carrier in Database administration.

    What all options are there in front of me to do that?

    2) The domain I am working in is ITIS(Information technology Infra Structure).

    and to be specific in that, I am working in Service Desk.

    Will that effect my current experience, when I will complete any of the certification and want to move into that domain?

    Please help me with the query I have. It would be really helpful for me.

    Thanks.


  • guest Friday, January 6, 2017

    I can answer your questions about how to get Oracle Certified, but I'm afraid that I won't do your questions about career choices and skills and how they translate to other job roles justice. I think that you will get a better answer from your peers in the field at https://myprofile.oracle.com/EndUser/faces/profile/findUsername.jspx.
