OCP Certification

Hi
I am Kishore, having 10+ years of experience in IT and currently working as Project Lead in a software company. I am very much passionate about oracle and i want to take OCP and to be a Database Administrator. Is it wise choice to do OCP at this level in my career?

Thnx. these may be and may not be are haunting me for a while. At time we are doing the job of a DBA for tuning the database and queries for our internal purpose and that' what forced me to think about the certification. What you said is true when you compare the hands on experience i have in the DAB area.From what you say I suspect you would not get want you want out of DBA OCP study.
The DBA OCP has (relatively) little to do with tuning:
The Oracle Database 11g Performance Tuning Certified Expert http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=41&p_exam_id=1Z0_054 has much more to do with database tuning (and as far as I am aware not so much to do with SQL statement tuning). A DBA OCP (or knowledge to about that level) would be a suggest pre-requisite before attending that course.
The following training course (which does not have an associated certification exam) may be of interest: http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getCourseDesc?dc=D52163GC20 ( In making this statement you woudl think I am on commission from Larry to day this .... actually I am not and this is a free one by me for Larry {noformat};){noformat{;)}.
To some extent, unless the database is really badly out of tune or stumped for resource or contention, in terms of tuning with a few basic steps the thing should really pretty well take care of itself.
As I think you are aware Tuning the application is where the greatest gains will typically be made.
If after all that you stiull fancy going for the DBA OCP look round to see if there is a workforce development programme course nearby that suits (relatively cheap and cheerful, quality may be very variable .. possibly sometimes very poor).

  • The course I did to gain OCP certification in Oracle Database 11g does not appear on the courses submission list on the website of pearson vue.

    The course I did to gain OCP certification in Oracle Database 11g does not appear on the courses submission list on the website of pearson vue, I sent an email to [email protected] from < email address deleted by moderator >, without an answer in 7 days since 01/28/2015, the email is below, the title of my course is in Portuguese.  What should I do in this case ?
    Dear Oracle.
    I am sending this email because recently I passed in the exam 1Z0-053 Oracle Database 11g: Administration II, which is the last examination necessary to acquire the OCP Certification. However, in the path to the certification I need to prove that I participated in an Oracle Official Training.
    Searching for the course on the pearson vue site, I have not found the course name on the list. So I am sending this email with the course information required for certification. I attended to the course in college FIAP (http://www.fiap.com.br/en/conheca-a-fiap/parcerias-estrategicas/), in the city of São Paulo, Brazil, from March/2010 to March/2011. Accessing the link above is possible to verify that the educational institution is an Oracle Partner. The title that I got was "Graduate in Oracle Database Management".
    In this email I attached a copy of the FIAP Certified Course (front.jpg certificate, certificate back.jpg). I’m also sending the data from my profile in the pearson vue site (Pearson VUE - My profile.pdf), and my scores in the exams for OCP certification (1Z0-051.pdf, 1Z0-052.pdf, 1Z0-053.pdf ).
    If you need any further information just let me know and I will provide.
    Please acknowledge this information and grant me the OCP certification (Oracle Database 11g Administrator Certified Professional).
    Regards.
    Italo Moisés dos Santos.
    Oracle Testing ID:  < deleted by moderator >

    Sorry, I expressed myself badly.
    When I access http://www.pearsonvue.com/oracle/course/ and start submission process  of the course, in the first step “Select the track for which you have completed a certification requirement” I selected the option “Oracle Database 11g Administrator OCP”, in the second step I selected “ILT = Instructor Led Training”,  but when I got on the third step “Which course or requirement did you complete?”  I have to choose the course name that I did, the course name that I did does not appears in that list, so I do not know which one to select, even having at the end of the form the option “Other ...(Course or requirement is not shown above. Please enter title below.)” the course name I did is in Portuguese/Brazil, the name is “MBA em gestão de banco de dados oracle” in Portuguese, which in English would look like "Graduate in Oracle Database Management".
    I sent an email to [email protected] containing the information that I found necessary to obtain certification.
    But if I have to do the process in the pearson vue site, should I put the course name in Portuguese or in English ?
    Only the email I sent is not enough ?
    Thanks for the help, and sorry for my english !

  • Should I go for Oracle 10g OCA/OCP or 11g OCA/OCP Certification?

    Hi all,
    I am lil bit confuse to decide about my oracle core dba certification.
    Please help me to know, as per the present requirements of the business organizations.
    ***Should I go for Oracle 10g OCA/OCP or 11g OCA/OCP Certification?***
    Hope u guys answer me earliest.
    Thanks & Regards,

    Most likely, it doesn't matter too much. I doubt that most employers are terribly concerned with what recent version of Oracle you have a certification on.
    That said, if it matters
    - What does your organization use? What are their plans to upgrade? If your company still uses 9.2 primarily and has plans to upgrade to 10.2 this year, you're probably better off with a 10g certification. If your company is already running mostly 11.2, you're probably better off with an 11g certification.
    - What do most employers in your particular part of the world tend to use? What do job postings in your particular part of the world generally list?

  • How to get Oracle 11g OCA, OCM, OCP certification?

    Hi,
    This is my first post! Please pardon my ignorance. I want to get Oracle 11g OCA, OCM, OCP certifications done. How do I go about it? How much does it cost to get these certifications? Could you please suggest a website/url where I can get more information about it.
    Thank you,
    Tracy

    The Oracle Certification Program site should answer your questions.
    Assuming you are trying to get certified on the DBA track (there are many different certification tracks, I'm assuming when you say 11g that you mean to indicate that you're interested in the DBA track), you can see the progression of the exams and the options you have on this page.

  • Guys i did my OCA Certification. KIndly suggest me as what i should do now for a good job in india beside completing OCP certification?

    I want to work and i need to know what are the scopes & what i should do to get a good job which has further growth and what courses can i do beside OCP certification. I am confused so kindly help me. Also, i completed my OCA 6 months before does it effect in getting jobs?

    As Phillippe indicates -- which OCA you mean makes a big difference.  My guess is you are referring to the DBA OCP, but I could be wrong.  I have written a number of articles targeted to people looking to start their Oracle career.  Links to four of them are below:

  • 9i OCA to 10g OCP Certification

    Hi,
    I am an OCA (Oracle 9i). I have passed my first exam on 01st july 2002 of IZO-001 and Fundemantals 1 in 2004. I am planning to move towards 10g and complete my OCP certification. I have few questions related to this.
    1. I have to appear in Admin1 and Admin 2 module of 10G to complete my OCP cerftification for 10g. Is this true?
    2. Do I need to take any course from oracle university in order to get certificate from oracle? As I read from website that there is an exemption for the applicants who have passed their first test before 01st September 2002. Please clear this point as I have passed my first exam before 01st september 2002.
    I shall be really thankful to you for your quick and favorable response.

AFAIK you need to take one Oracle University course to be OCP
    I shall be really thankful to you for your quick and favorable response.Please visit Oracle Certification page for more information
    http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=39
    With regards to the hands on course exemption ......
    My understanding is ...
    - Is that at least previously people who had taken a (relevant) certification exam prior to 2002 were exempt from the 9i DBA OCP hands on course.
    - (I have now found the relevant page below):
    - However my understanding is they are not exempt from the 10g DBA OCP hands on (so to obtain 10g DBA OCP without a hands on course they would need to go via 9i DBA OCP first).
    - So my understanding is to obtain a 10g DBA OCP (given a success with 1z0-001 prior to 2002) you would either:
    1) Take 1z0-032 and 1z0-033 (and submit a 9i DBA OCP hands on course exemption for exam pass prior to 2002)
    - Then as a 9i DBA OCP take the exams required to be 10g DBA OCP (eg 1z0-040 (or 1z0-042 + 1z0-043) )
    2) Pass 1z0-042 to 10g DBA OCA
    pass 1z0-043 and submit appropriate hands-on-course exemption for 9i DBA OCP.
    Reference:
    The page [http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=99#1] indicates how to submit a hands on course exemption for 9i DBA OCP. I recommend you do this immediately to confirm your position (I cant see any harm in doing this).
    ------ I also recommend you register on Certview to confirm your exmption has been accepted.
    Please note this is my best understanding .... th Certification Forum Moderator may choose to comment or you may wish to confirm with ocpexam_ww. However I my reading of the above reference under the section Candidates who are exempt from the Oracle9i hands-on course requirement because they took their first exam on or before September 1, 2002 seems to be clear enough.

  • Clarification on OCP certification Upgrade

    Hi,
    Currently I am having OCP certification on 9i Database and I am planning to upgrade it later on planning to do certification on R12.
    The below link says certification path regarding the R12 Certification.
    http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=653&get_params=p_id:21
    As per this link the pre-requisite for R12 certification is 10g or 11g OCP. If I do the Database OCP certification upgrade to 12c will I be able to take R12 certification?
    Thanks,
    Regards,

    Are you referring to R12 EBusiness Suite  (which is the URL you've provided) or Database release 12c ?  Two different products.

  • 9i DBA OCP certification possible on OS X 10.2.x Jaguar?

    Has anybody successfully completed the 9i DBA OCP certification using Oracle9i Database Release 2 Enterprise Edition for Apple Mac OS X Version 10.2 Jaguar ( see http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/htdocs/devlic.html?http://otn.oracle.com/software/products/oracle9i/htdocs/macsoft.html )?
    According to the Release Notes, Oracle9i Database Release 2 Enterprise Edition for Apple Mac OS X Version 10.2 Jaguar is strictly a developer release, and does not support database options such as Real Application Clusters, JavaVM, and other "advanced database features." In that case, is it sufficient for self-training for certification?
    I use a PowerBook. I already passed Exam# 1Z0-007: Introduction to Oracle9i: SQL® ( see http://www.oracle.com/education/certification/objectives/7.html?_template=/ocom/ocom_item_templates/ocom_blank_template_with_site_cat ) on June 2, 2002, narrowly avoiding the Instructor-Led/Hands-On Course Requirement Deadline ( see http://www.oracle.com/education/certification/news/o9ionecourse_newdate.html ), and wish to avoid being required now to take an instructor-led course.
    The requirements for the new 10g DBA OCP certification have, apparently, not yet been posted (I got an "Sorry, this page was not found (Error Document 404)" error message when I just clicked on the link "Oracle Database 10g Administrator Certified Professional (1 exam)" ( see http://www.oracle.com/education/certification/dba10g_ocp.html ) on the "Oracle Database 10g Administrator Certification Paths" page ( see http://www.oracle.com/education/certification/dba10g_track.html )). However, I am very concerned that they will include a new Instructor-Led/Hands-On Course Requirement Deadline, which I wish to avoid. I'd rather continue with my 9i DBA OCP certification, and then upgrade to 10g.
    Does anybody have any suggestions?

    [email protected]

    It will better to continue 9i certification and then upgrade to 10i in your present situation.
    as for as concern you says that
    Release Notes, Oracle9i Database Release 2 Enterprise Edition for Apple Mac OS X Version 10.2 Jaguar is strictly a developer release, and does not support database options such as Real Application Clusters, JavaVM, and other "advanced database features."
    I think it will support the database option. Oracle experts can give better answer this.

    Hi,
    First of all, you have not mentioned about OCP for what ?
    -- Application developer ?
    -- DBA ??
    -- DBO ??
    If you are changing your front-end other Oracle forms with
    backend Oracle database, you may not consider OCP.
    If you want to concerntrate more on backend, you might think of
    DBA or DBOs. That will be helpful for your career. Good luck...!

  • Help on OCP certification

    Dear Friends,
    I need some suggestion on writing 10g OCP Certification...
    I had written 10g OCA recently i.e Administration 1 on 29th NOV... I guess I would get OCA certificate from oracle...
    Now I would like to pursue OCP exam..
    I had been to the oracle link which gives list of courses to be taken online or instructor led to get OCP..
    I guess we need to take only one course from the list and would be eligible for OCP exam...?
    Any help is greatly appreciated..

    Chubbyd4d wrote:
    Just want to add information
    It is true to be an OCP we have to attend an Oracle Course in Oracle Universities or Oracle Approved Education Centres (OAEC). But, you don't have to follow the Oracle 10g Database Administration Workshop II for that since that course is consider expensive but useful.
    If you have budget concern, the cheapest one, I believe is Oracle 10g SQL Tuning Workshop, because it's only 3 days course which is much cheaper than Admin Workshop II (5 days).
    I passed my OCP for Oracle 10g DBA without attended any Admin Workshop class.
    cheers.One doesn't need to attend the OCP modules to get OCP. There is no such provision like this or restriction like this. I wouldn't recommend that person who is still prepairing for OCP to attend advanced courses like SQL Tuning just because its a 3 day course. About the course , though its a 3 days course only but its a highly packed course with LOT of info which probably is too much for that candidate who is still struggling to understand what Oracle is and how it works? Don't compare cost of these two courses. They are for different audience and cost being lesser or smaller will be a secondary issue here. If the person won't understand a bit when there will be talks about Join techniques , explain plans, trace files, tkprof, it doesn't matter what was the cost,it will be a wastage of time and resource completely.
    If really money is the only deciding factor than one can simply attend SQL course only.
    Cheers

    Edited by: anandk on May 25, 2011 4:22 PMThe OCP certification requires you take the training course, the exam itself does not.
    There is actually nothing to stop you enrolling and sitting (intl english appearing) for the exam. However if you pass you wont be certified until you take the requisite training and have it verified.
    There is no way you will skip training and still be awarded the certification
    I would have thought OAS is now superceded by weblogic and is in the twilight of its life. And there are probably diminishing numbers of courses for it ... but you seem to be lucky ....
