I have completed my training for oracle 10g in 1. SQL, 2. PL/SQL 3. OCA & 4. OCP.

i also completed all of certification exam.

now, i want to upgrade my self to 11g. what should i do ?

Can i give exam of 11g by purchasing directly the exam voucher or training is must for 11g ?

Because i don't need training for 11g i can give my exam with training.

Also what should i do next in oracle for improving my skill in oracle.

    Welcome to the forum!

    To upgrade from OCP 10g to OCP 11g you can take the 1z0-050 Oracle Database 11g: New Features for Administrators exam.

    Since you are already OCP 10g no training is required.

    After that you can study other areas such as Performance Tuning, Real Application Clusters and Data Guard to improve you skills.

    Was this from an authorised provider ?
    i also completed all of certification exam.
    Exactly which exam codes passed ?

    I dont think anybody much has completed 'all' certificaton exams.

    The strange humour answer is to run dbua on yourself.

    The better answer is:-

    (1): Confirm on http://certiview.oracle.com that you have actually achieved certification.
    ( Or you may hae received success kits in the post from Oracle ).
    ..... I say this because several others who have taken certification exams but not understood the process have not acutally got themselves certified. So it is useful to check.

    (2) Visit http://certification.oracle.com and locate how to upgrade your certification.

    For a confirmed certification 10g DBA OCP there is no additional mandatory training requirement for the 11g DBA Upgrade.
    Because i don't need training for 11g i can give my exam with training.
    As a general rule of thumb you can take any exam whenever you like provided you have't already passed it or failed it within the last 14 days (online available exams an exception for the 14 days)

    Practice.
