Only a Handful of Oracle Certified MastersJuly 5, 2004

Oracle has published a list of the Oracle Certified Masters, and this list of only 13 names does not include the "honorary" OCM certificate holders:
The Oracle Certified Masters is not the same as the Oracle Masters Certificate.  According to Mike Ault, holder of five Oracle Masters, the Oracle Masters Certificate requires no testing, only that you pay at least $12,000.000 to Oracle University.

Oracle has published that there are less than 100 Oracle Certified Masters in the world today, but it appears that there are only 13 people who have invested the money to take this test.

Getting Oracle OCM certification requires:
1 - Spending at least $3,000.000 for advanced Oracle training at Oracle University.  You cannot obtain this knowledge from any other Oracle training company. 

2 - Having a valid OCP certification

3 - Traveling to an authorized Oracle testing center and spending $2,000.000 to take the practicum exam.

In sum, unless you are one of the lucky honorary OCM holders (Jeremiah Wilton, Rich Niemiec) getting Oracle OCM certification can easily cost $6,000.00.
