TOD course for OCP

Hello,
I've passed 1z0-051 and 1z0-052 exams then got OCA degree. I'm going to prepare for 1z0-053 exam.
But my company paid for ORACLE DATABASE 11G: PERFORMANCE TUNING DBA RELEASE 2 - TOD for me.
Does this course allow me to get OCP certificate?
Thanks

Training-On-Demand courses meet the requirements for hands-on training:
+"Please note that only instructor-led in-class, online, or recorded courses (includes Live Web Classes – LWC, Live Virtual classes – LVC and Training On-Demand courses) from the approved list of Oracle University courses count toward the training requirement. Self Study CD-Rom and Knowledge Center courses are excellent study and reference tools but DO NOT meet the Hands-on Requirement for certification."+

    If your training isn't an authorized course from an authorized provider it won't help.
    Yours was possilby an WDP course.
    The problem is there can be some bad people out there.
    The company you mention may or may not be okay .... and the WDP program can sometimes be difficult to see:

  • Help..Oracle could not trace my WDP hands on course for OCP 10g

    Dear All,
    Can somebody on Oracle (OTN team) could help me to validate & check my WDP hands on course as below detail :
    Class Name :
    ORACLE DATABASE 10G: ADMINISTRATION WORKSHOP II RELEASE 2 - WDP (D17092GC31S)
    Location : CV Informit Indonesia
    Student Id : 62156
    Student Name : Zulfirman
    Schedule : 25 March 2011 - 10 April 2011
    (10 sessions @ 3 Hours)
    I have put above information on VUE, but then come up an email response from oracle asking my hardcopy certificate course.
    I have contacted the INFORMIT, they said it takes 2 up to 3 month to get the certification from OU indonesia.
    Since it take long time to get the training certification, I come back emailing the oracle to ask for speed up, then they said they need to check further about my training detail.
    FInally they come up with an email that asking me to ask INFORMIT to email the oracle confirming that i have already completed that course.
    Worstly, i have not in that city anymore where the INFORMIT located, but i drop informit an email just now to forward oracle request to them.
    Question :
    1. Can someone help me to validate my training instead of waiting oracle with the emailing back - forward ?
    2.Why ORacle unable to trace my detail WDP class above ? Is it because of a cheap WDP training so they dont provide a connected server between WDP training provider & OU or Oracle headquarter ?
    3. The Hardcopy certification for WDP student take too long. What is the std lead time for WDP student to have thier training certifiaction ?
    Thank You,
    Zulfirman,PMP,OCA

    Hi Brandye Barrington,
    No,
    they didnt provide me an exam voucer. For your info, i have already passed all the exam required for OCP track.Which is an indicator of something not right. Mabe not your fault. Maybe the Institution. Maybe WDP.
    My goal to get this training is to refresh me about the topic & to claim my OCP status.
    you can check my exam history using my ORacle Testing ID (or Oracle Certification Program ID): XXXXXXXXXXWell you've just 3.2 (iv) No Misconduction of the http://education.oracle.com/education/pdf/ocp_candidate_agreement_V0810.pdf of the agreement you make before taking this exam by disclosiing your Oracle Testing Id to another person ... aka the whole internet!
    >
    For your info,
    I hve just got confirmation from my WDP training centre (Informit). They have emailed "[email protected]" to confirm that i have officialy registered with WDP training centre by showing to them (them = oracle) the screen shot or print screen of regsitration form from WDP website, where my name alrady been registered inside the WDP system.
    Ho Ho Ho !! The WDP training center are well enoughton the ball to know that email address have been withdrawn. ( http://blogs.oracle.com/certification/2011/03/email_alias_ocpexam_wworacleco.html ).
    Perhaps that document does show a registration number.
    Now i can only wait, wheter oracle still could not accpet that email from INFORMIT as a proof or i have to wait for my certification hardcopy (take 2 or 3 months ahead)
    Emails can be faked. And I am reasonably certain a percentage of WDP Training centers would not apply the rules properly if they could get away with it.
    If i still have to wait for the scan hardcopy certification, then for sure, i really upset with ORACLE, due they could not manage best communication & sychronization database between ORACLE - WDP TRanining Centre, & me as a unlucky candidate due to their bad communication on both system.
    IMHO I can see from this and other threads that WDP or the training centers fail to publish clear and precise information of what is involved so the students can authoratively check on an oracle website. IMHO The WDP Traiing centers have a degree of control which they can use to mislead students.
    And I assume you have access to the following :: https://workforce.oracle.com/pdf/html_rd/wdp_stu_reg.html?wdp0 ... and if not why not ? ( I dont .. i am not WDP).
    If ORACLE is a great database company, then they must already predict such issue in early as possible instead of waiting such complaint raised in.
    Oracle is Great. Larry is Great. Any Oracle RDBMS version with a zero in it may be a bad vintage.
    But IMHO you may be right wrt WDP.
    Again, Pls help me on this..
    Besr Regards,
    Zulfirman,PMP,OCAWhen one does training at OU the attendance is properly recorded and there are nless real issues with attendance not being recorded.
    With WDP institutions as far as I can tell this is not perhaps as well auditted and there is perhaps room for shenanigans; faked attendance, etc.
    As far as i know when WDP was started (oracle 9i) the students used to have to attend the whole track of a specially constructed coiurse to get the credi ( I used to call it a never mind the quality feel the width training). And the training was spread to ensure the pupil had time to absorb the training. And it might be taught by non Oracle Professionals. WDP can however now be used for a single session set of part of track being sufficient for the training requirement (This may be simply a never mind the quality appreciatethe cheapness approach).
    This may all seem off topic for you.
    However please realise Oracle Certification (whcih operates independently of WDP who do there own thing) need to establish training has been properaly attended. And if there is a loophole many WDP candidates wll rush towards it.
    This however does give me a chance to kick Oracle to ensure WDP has its house in order.

  • Hands on Course for OCP

    Hi All,
    I am planning for an OCP certification in DBA stream Oracle 9i.(Already done with OCA).
    I have got to know that apart from 1Z0-032 and 1Z0-033 , I need to take hands on course.
    Please guide me on the queries:
    1. How to complete this hands on course ,its duration and charges for this.
    2. Is there any limit for time span for completing OCP certification ,starting from 032 and completing hands on course.
    Thanks in advance..

  • 10g course completion of sql, admin1 and admin2, want to sit for ocp 11g

    Hi all:
    I have completed my courses for sql, admin 1 and admin 2 for oracle 10g.
    I want to sit for the ocp 11g exam.
    What should be the optimum/best/fastest way to sit for ocp 11g.
    Please help......

    Your post indicates that you have attended 10G courses, but not whether you have passed any certification tests. It is also not clear from your post whether the courses you took were from vendors that are accepted by Oracle for the hands-on requirement for an OCP. 10G courses, from an approved vendor or not, do not count directly towards the 11G OCP certification. In my reply I'm going to make two assumptions:
    1 -- You have not taken any certification tests yet. This may not be true, but I would think that you'd have mentioned them rather than just the training if you had.
    2 -- The training you took is from an approved vendor.
    If the above two assumptions are true, then the "fastest way to sit for ocp 11g" is:
    Take (and pass) the following exams to become an Oracle 10G OCP:
    1Z0-051 -- Oracle Database 11g: SQL Fundamentals I
    1Z0-042 -- Oracle Database 10g: Administration I
    1Z0-043 -- Oracle Database 10g: Administration II
    Then complete the Oracle Education course submission form for the appropriate course(s) that meet the hands on requirement.
    Once you pass all three tests and the course is approved, you will have the Oracle 10G DBA Certification.
    Then take (and pass) the following exam to become an Oracle 11G OCP:
    1Z0-050 -- Oracle Database 11g: New Features for Administrators
    Alternately, you can take an 11G course that meets the hands-on requirement and take the 11G specific tests. Since this is likely to cost more than taking one additional test and will mean that in the end you will only be 11G certified rather than 10G and 11G, I think the outline above is likely preferable.

  • Purpose of instructor led training requirement for OCP?

    What is the purpose of requiring OCP candidates to take an instructor led course? It all seems a bit random / superfluous. Costly too if one does not have an employer willing to pay for the training.
    My Oracle Press "OCA/OCP Oracle Database 11g All-in-One Exam Guide" doesn't even hint that classes are a requirement for the OCP; the most said is: "The OCA qualification is based on two examinations; the OCP qualification requires passing a third examination." (pg. XXIX). An incomplete characterization, correct?
    And "To prepare for the OCA/OCP examinations, you can attend Oracle University instructor-led training courses, you can study Oracle University online learning material, or you can read this book." (pg. XXIX). Prepare for the exams, sure. But why would such a book omit the not insignificant detail that a perhaps expensive course is required to get the OCP? Seems discourteous to the reader.
    From http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=244#5 via http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=198&p_org_id=&lang=
    I say it seems random and superfluous because of the following list:
    "These foundation courses meet the Hands On Course Requirement for OCP-Level certification:
    * Oracle Database 11g: Introduction to SQL
    * Oracle Database 11g: Introduction to SQL Ed 1 LVC
    * Oracle Database 11g: SQL Fundamentals I
    * Oracle Database 11g: SQL Fundamentals l Ed 1 LVC
    * Oracle Database 11g: SQL and PL/SQL Fundamentals
    * Oracle Database 11g: SQL and PL/SQL Fundamentals Ed 1 LVC
    * Oracle Database 11g: Develop PL/SQL Program Units
    * Oracle Database 11g: Administration Workshop I
    * Oracle Database 11g: Administration Workshop I Ed 1.1 LVC
    * Oracle Database 11g: Administration Workshop II
    * Oracle Database 11g: Data Warehousing Fundamentals"
    A modest Intro to SQL course will count? But an OCA will already have that knowledge. Obviously, one should choose a course with higher-level content. But I'm not sure I understand the logic of the OCA-grade courses being eligible. And for those funding certification without financial assistance from an employer, the question that suggests is this: what is the least expensive way to satisfy the "instructor led" course requirement? I cheapest price I see from Oracle is a 3 day class costing $1,800. It would also cost 3 days of vacation time, or unpaid leave, if an employer is not supportive of certification.

    Thanks for your thoughtful reply Hans.
    TO expose the candidate to techniques related to the new features rather than traditional techniques that are commonplace in the industry.That makes sense to me. But many of us like to tinker with new features on our own.In my experience, many, many more people want the OCP without doing any work. Some will use pure memorization or out and cheating to get there.
    It's unfortunate that you and I get penalized by those.

    And to ensure that the has had at least some hands-on time, instead of only pure theory. While some people may get hands-on at work, many others do not
    have that opportunityh, especially in the are of new features.Then it might make sense for OCP certification to allow submission of proof of work experience in place of the HOC, as is the case with other professional certifications.
    Yes, that would be nice.
    But difficult to verify. and you would be surprised how many organizations have very narrow definitions of the job. Experimenting not allowed in some places.
    It all seems a bit random / superfluous. Sad, from an instructors and OCP's point of view, to hear you think of it that way.I don't mean to say there isn't anything new any of us couldn't pick up, say, even from an Intro to SQL course. There's a vastness to most technology topics and we can't master every facet. But the cost/benefit ratio may be terribly low for those who are already Oracle professionals with many years of on the job experience. The reality as well is that some instructors are duds--that's the case anywhere. And for my learning style, I prefer self-guided / on-my-own study.
    Costly too if one does not have an employer willing to pay for the training.No doubt.
    My Oracle Press "OCA/OCP Oracle Database 11g All-in-One Exam Guide" doesn't even hint that classes are a requirement for the OCP; the most said is: "The
    OCA qualification is based on two examinations; the OCP qualification requires passing a third examination." (pg. XXIX). An incomplete characterization, correct?A topic to discuss with the authors, and publisher. We (the user community with whom you are talking) have little to no control over this.Wonder if the authors participate in these forums. I realize you, as a user, have no control over this. But a book blessed by Oracle via Oracle Press, I respectfully submit, can and should do better--by including details about the HOC requirement.
    Some do. But much more effetive would be to lodge a formal complaint or inquiry.
    "These foundation courses meet the Hands On Course Requirement for OCP-Level certification:
    ...All of which will ensure you have had time becoming acquainted with SQLPLus, DBControl, and perhaps SQLDeveloper.I already use all 3 tools. Would love to take all the courses listed; but I'm not independently wealthy or otherwise.
    So would I. ;-)
    As well as logging in (you would be surprised how many OCA candidates do not know how), these all give you an opportunity to issue SQL and PL/SQL
    commands. Scary, but seems beside the point. The HOC requirement is one solution to this problem, but it seems like a sub-optimal one. Again, this punishes Oracle professionals already working in the field who'd like to become certified. Why is there no regard for them? One way to correct this, if this is a genuine concern on Oracle's part, is to include a "live" aspect to the exams. Then, if this causes a fail, those who flunk might be interested in taking HOCs to remedy this. In this day and age, I'm certain training could involve interactive SQL*PLUS sessions, etc. Only a failure of imagination and will could prevent I suspect; particularly in a world of virtualization. I'd consider a redesign of exams before I'd require people to pay for classes they may be unable to pay for. It's a bit of an insult to working Oracle professionals who want to add certification.
    I agree to some extent. Again, the issue is the consistency in experience. I have met people with 10 years of experience, and others with 10 times 1 year of experience.
    A modest Intro to SQL course will count? But an OCA will already have that knowledge. I wish this was consistently true. Then I mispoke. But the HOC still punishes existing Oracle professionals.
    I sympathize. I'm an independent, and all exams and certification costs come out of my own (corporate=me) pocket. But life in the professional fast lane is not
    cheap. This topic has been the source of some contention for quite some time.
    Unfortunately a number of people have been unscrupulous in their method of getting certification - cheating, using gunners, and so on - and I see this as one of
    the few ways to combat the issue. If the cheating issue is just left alone, the value of OCP (and any other certification) is effectively lost.The unscrupulous, I'm afraid, will always be with us. This problem is not solved, I'm also afraid, by requiring a costly HOC. It is in my opinion one potential solution of many, and not at all the best one. I wonder how other vendors with certifications handle this. I do know that some industry-generic certifications require proof of X years of work in the field (e.g. GISPs), as well as providing proof of various contributions to the field. This could be gamed as well I suppose. But the honest should not be punished along with the dishonest.Basically I agree with the sentiment. Implementation is the issue.
    >
    Bottom line: in my view, a few alternate solutions to the HOC are:
    1) Allow submission of work credentials to substitute for the HOC
    2) Incorporate hands-on aspects to the exam, e.g. a SQL*PLUS simulator.
    I'm sure the brilliant minds at Oracle, or a suitable contractor, could easily accomplish #2. And #1 might be a true bar-raiser. It seems highly unlikely to me that, say, requiring an Intro to SQL HOC course raises the bar more than a few millimeters.There have been many discussions around this. Several of us have even considered non-vendor certifications as a route to accomplish this.
    It is an imperfect world. But hopefully the steps will correct some of the deficiencies.
    I am sure Paul and the rest of the Certification team would be happy to hear more feedback on how to implement practical verifiable real-world experience alternatives to the HOC that do not increase Oracle's costs.
    >
    Since both are unlikely to happen any time soon, what is the least expensive option for the HOC and where do I find a list of courses and institutions that offer them? In my view, Oracle should provide this information as a courtesy. No reason not to unless there is a revenue motive; and the author of the blog posts you sent me assures us the addition of the HOC is not a revenue enhancement maneuver. I'd be more inclined to believe it if those words were backed-up with helpful actions like the one I've proposed--since such a thing seems not to exist.All courses and course locations are available through http://education.oracle.com (and have been available for years) as well as the price. Oracle's policy does not allow for much price variation for education. The exception is when bulk purchased are negotiated, which is outside what you and I can talk with them about.

  • Training for OCP

    I wanted to know how to do the training for Oracle certified porfessional certification. I was interested in the approved instructor-led online course. I am aware that training + exam(1Z0-043) + hands-on course requirement form are the requisites for OCP.
    I hope, my question is clear.

    in feb09, our company got us trained on Oracle 10g sql tuning which was conducted by an oracle university faculty in Hyderabad.
    I am planning for Oracle Database 10g Administrator Certified Professional (OCP certification) exam and had a small query in this regard and no its not about exam dumps :)
    The certificate that we have got from oracle says
    Course " Oracle database 10g: SQL Tuning (Hosted) PRV"This has no problem. This means that the course you guys have attended must be hosted some where in the Oracle networks but not in your company. This is nothing but the title that the course was hosted by Oracle. So no issues as such are in it!
    The doubt that I have is, whether this training will suffice the hands on course requirement for appearing for the Oracle Database 10g Administrator Certified Professional (OCP certification) ?Yes this training does qualify for the OCP10g course as its a listed course in the approved courses for the 10g OCP , see here,

    Things stated by you is already stated above by matthew in his thread.
    I just replied back to it.
    I admit i have to be little most descriptive than what i have written.
    Most important is that instead of mentioning something about nation like India you should directly talk to me in a technical way.
    There are time in this forum when such mistake happens but it should be solved technically.Nothing wrong in accepting critics of something you have done wrong.
    ( I have nothing against India, the problem occurs elsewhere as well).I saw that but better not start the discussion in that way :-)The problem is that when talking about unqualified 'OCP' or 'OCA' there is a big possibility of mixing up certification and exam entities.
    A certification is a certification and an exam is an exam (or perhaps a pseudo-exam like a course verification).
    In addition there is not just one 'OCP' certification ... there are many OCP certifications ... MySQL, Solaris, PL/SQL, Java although generally by default when omitted the context is for a DBA certification.
    It is also important to note typically exams can be taken in any order, however certifications will not be issued until prerequisites are met.
    ( Possible exception on some special cases : OCM exams and those involving Java written assigments where there may be some form of order).
    So when I come to the statement:
    As mentioned above for OCP you have to give OCA.
    I judge that to be incorrect.
    .... and I judge that because I have read it as "Before you give the OCP (1z0-043/053) exam you give the OCA exam (1z0-042/1z0-052) ... which is not true.
    However ... given the OP has mentioned he in on DBA track .. and if I read it as 'To gain the (DBA) OCP certification one must have the (DBA) OCA certification as a pre-requisite' there is no problem with the statement .... as the graphic in your earlier post shows.
    Without further analysis ... which may help my case or dig me into a whole on this occasion .... i had simply better apologise as I certainly did not appreciate full context when composing my answer ... I thought I had but I review I had not.
    In simple terms for original poster targeting 10g DBA exams .... best practice is to study and take 1z0-042 first and also be aware and plan how you will get your required DBA Training if you are looking to get OCP certification.

    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 ....
    there also be Oracle University LVC (online) classes that apply ..... (ie one does not have to get ones favourite train (eg Darjeeling express or ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_named_passenger_trains_of_India ) to get there:

  • Reg: Hands on Requirement for OCP Certification in 10G

    Hai all,
    I am called Prabhu Prashant.R I Live in India(in Chennai). I've passed OCA in 10G and waiting to attend OCP. I am preparing by myself. but you all know that Oracle is insisting to complete a Hands on Requirement Course for certification Purpose. My question is should I complete the course only from OU or can I complete that course in any of the Workforce Development Partner. If there are any one existing in India, learned people please provide me the name of them. I could not afford OU courses because It costs a Hefty.Please Help!!!!.

    You can take a required course not only at Oracle University, but also from the Oracle Authorized Center.

  • Is training mandatory before appearing for OCP?

    Hi,
    I've scheduled OCA exams within couple of weeks. After that i'm planning to appear for OCP exams.
    Is it mandatory to take training from Oracle approved institute before appearing for OCP? I have already studied a lot of materials and has been working on Oracle technology for past 3 yrs.
    Also, I don't have so much money to invest on trainings which in US is around 1000$s
    Is there any way to skip the training and get an oracle certification?
    Thanks,
    Gangadhar

    Justin,
    Thanks for your response.
    I'm giving OCA (1Z0-051, 1Z0-052) & then OCP (1Z0-053).
    Can I appear for 1Z0-053 without training? Also if i don't attend training, then i'll be atleast carrying the passing result though not a proper certificate. Am i right here?
    Once I clear OCP and then if i attend training, Will that count?
    Thanks,
    GangadharIts really important to differentiate between exams and certifications!
    If people would do this like is easier!
    And they also do not ending up claiming they are an OCP when the are not ... Oracle can take action including revoking exam passes and certification and banning from certification exams.
    I stress these things because it is not only the Original Poster who read the answers ... it is other as well.
    So please dont call the passing 1z0-053 exam passing OCP .... it is merely passing OCP. 11gDBA OCP is obtained when all the requirements are met .. including have training verified.
    Now having said all that it is indeed perfectly possilble to take the training after having passed all the other requirements. The training courses are designed to help make this possilble.
    Rememeber if money is an issue some training courses are shorter and less expensive that others. And sometimes WDP training may be cheaper (see http://workforce.oracle.com) though you would normally do this prior to your exam. Make very sure however the training you take is on the list of acceptable training for 11g DBA OCP or it will not validate properly and you would have to take further training.

  • Instructor-led class for OCP

    will my university bachelor's degree in IT(specialization: Database Technologies) count or substitute for the instructor-led class which is required for OCP.. It included 3 classes. (we used 10g as our platform and had several team & individual database projects for each classes)
    Database Management Systems (4 credits)
    Database Security, Auditing, and Disaster Recovery (4 credits) and
    Data Warehousing and Mining (4 credits)
    Also can you recommend OCP approved instructor-led class tranining here in Minnesota. Is the online format any good?
    thanks

    thanksYour options are:
    (1) Worforce: https://workforce.oracle.com/pls/wdp/new_home.main .... but i don't think one is near you. Remeber I am in UK and have given up on US geography as it seems half those in Washington are o the west coast and the other half on the east coast in a different time zone. Quality can be a bit dodgy so not recommended.
    (2) Otherwise you need to indentify your couse here:
    http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=244
    Unless you are rich and can afford loads choose your course wisely .... some help with the exams ... others can expand your experience post exams. Some are cheaper than others.
    I think i'd generally prefer classroom ..... ( I have never done LVC online). But distance can be an issue.
    Anyways checkout: http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=317
    And try to fight your way round the course schedules http://education.oracle.co.uk/html/oracle/28US/SCHED_MP.htm . Hopefully they taught you to fight your way arround such websites at university ... the information is there. If not give oracle university a ring ... Larry wants to acquire you and your money.

  • Which web page explicitly tells us about the hands-on requirement for OCP u

    (Kind-a in a rush, so I have not done an exhaustive search.)
    The request is: Please provide an Oracle site reference that explicitly indicates the upgrade from OCP 10g to OCP 11g does or does not require attendance to an approved ILT course.
    Pages searched so far:
    - http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=44
    The above page discusses the recommended training. But need to takle that training is 'recommended'[, not explicitly included/excluded.
    - http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=198&p_org_id=&lang=
    The above page is for fresh OCP and does not discuss OCP upgreade at all. (It DOES discuss OCM upgrade.)
    - http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=82#5Q1A (FAQ)
    This is now generated and no longer searchable. However the section on "Completing the Course Submission Form" does not include/exclude upgrades from requiring a new course attendance.
    "The Course Submission Form is the final requirement in obtaining *most* OCP and OCM certifications as well as some Oracle Expert Program certifications"

    You bring up a good point that this should be made clear on our upgrade page that training is not required for certification upgrade. We'll make that notation on this page to be more clear.Personal feeling is that training IS required to approach the upgrade exam. But I admit I am biased. ;-) perhaps something like:
    "A hands-on course, such as the Oracle Education 'New Features' course for DBAs is highly recommended when preparing to challenge the OCP upgrade exam. However the candidate does not need to submit a Course Submission Form to apply for the OCP Upgrade after successfully completing the upgrade exam and meeting the other prerequisites."
