New Oracle "expert" certification

According to Oracle, they are expanding their revenue stream with additional Oracle "expert" certifications, no experience required.

I've published about becoming an Oracle expert, and I firmly believe that becoming an expert in any technology requires many years of experience.  There have been many incidents in the media about fake Oracle experts, and it's interesting to see that Oracle is going to offer expert certification on these areas, no experience required:

  • Oracle Database 10g: Managing Oracle on Linux Certified Expert
  • Oracle Database 10g: Real Applications Clusters Administrator Certified Expert
  • Oracle 11i Workflow Certified Expert
  • Oracle 11i System Administrator Certified Expert

Is this just another Oracle certification money-grab?

It remains to be seen whether the "Oracle expert" certifications will become popular, but with the lack of verified work experience, they will surely be ridiculed in some areas.  For example, the original Oracle7 certified DBA program required evidence of extensive work experience.
