Oracle offers new two-day DBA certification “Oracle Database 10g Administrator”

April 13, 2004

Oracle OCP candidates report that the Mike Ault book is the best way to pass the Oracle10g OCP upgrade exam.  It's only $24.95, and you can buy it here:

Oracle Database 10g New Features Book

Oracle has just announced a new series of Oracle10g training at Oracle University, including the two-day DBA, starting in June, and Oracle is offering a free "certification voucher" for those who sign-up for the training:



"A new exam relating to the Oracle Database 10g: Administration Workshop I course will be available "in July." This is the only 10g exam specifically mentioned in the promotion, which offers a free certification voucher for those who sign up for a class before Aug. 31. This advertisement is currently running on as well as several other sites. "


According to the article, spending $90 and taking a one-hour test will earn the student the title,”Oracle Database 10g Administrator”.

While the 10g OCP track is still a few months away, Oracle recently released a new 10g "assessment" title. Those who pass an online exam, designed for those coming into 10g through a new two-day training course, can earn the title of "Oracle Database 10g Administrator." The online test lasts one hour and costs $90 (U.S.).

Although the training is not required, Oracle told it created the title because, "Oracle has found that many of the individuals who are enrolling in Oracle University curriculum are oftentimes looking for metrics and recognition for work that has been accomplished."

Of course, this is expected to create confusion with the Oracle10g OCP certification, as noted in the article:


"This designation does not indicate certification on Oracle Database 10g; however, the Oracle 10g assessment test and the resulting title of Oracle Database 10g Administrator gives professionals the recognition for having completed the 2-Day training, verifying that they have an understanding of the basics of Oracle Database 10g."
