    If you only have the OCA, You need two tests and a training course to become a 9i OCP:
    *1Z0-032     Oracle9i Database: Fundamentals II*
    *1Z0-033     Oracle9i Database: Performance Tuning*

    Since you also only need two courses and a training course to become 11G certified -- and because the training course you'd have to take would probably be on 11G anyway, since the 9i ones have been retired, I'd suggest going for the 11G certification:

    *1Z0-052     Oracle Database 11g: Administration I*
    *1Z0-053     Oracle Database 11g: Administration II*
    I lose my testing id but i have the certificate is it enough .
    You need your testing ID in order to able to link your current history with the new tests you'll be taking -- and to use your legacy SQL exam results. Open an SR at the link below. Give them your name and the date of the certification (should be on the certificate). Tell them that you've lost your testing ID and that you would like them to locate it and associate it with your OTN account.

    ***Edit: When I first read this, I thought it was 9i OCP. Major edit to show the correct info.

    The choice is yours.

    It is not unambigous wheher you are talking about training, or certification.

    Visit http://certification.oracle.com to definitively identify the requirements the requirements for 9i DBA OCP and 11g DBA OCP certifications.

    I suspect you have already completed some WDP training toward the training requirement for 9i DBA OCP, though I suspect it is inelligible for 11g DBA OCP.

    My suggested course of action is:-

    [1]: Identify your existing Oracle Testing Id: (See below)
    [2]: register at Pearson VUe
    [3]: Register at Certview, check you existing certification shows there.
    [4]: If you think your training is elligible for 11g: (It probably isnt so this may be a waste of time).
    [4a] Submit tyour course for verifiction against 11g DBA OCP http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=99
    [4b] If unsuccessful goto [5]
    [4c] Ccomple 1z0-052 and 1z0-053 exams (you should already have at SQL exam pass). You should achieve 11g DBA OCP accreditation.
    [5] Submit tyour course for verifiction against 9i DBA OCP http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=99
    [5a] If unsuccessful goto [6] { It may be unsuccessful if you did not complete the training track ... seek course verification IMHO ASAP so you know where you are).
    [5b] Complete remaining 9i DBA OCP exams .... 1z0-032 and 1z0-033. You should achieve 9g DBA OCP accreditation. You may upgrade to Oracle 11g using e.g. 1z0-055.
    [6] Your existing training will not count towards DBA OCP. See advice from Oracle Certification Support. You probably will have to redo training for OCP.

    Not initially.

    Visit:

    http://certification.oracle.com

    Find the help center: Support - Help Center.

    Expand: 'I forgot my Prometric Testing ID and I need it to create my Pearson VUE account so that any exams I took at Prometric are under the same account as any exams I take at Pearson VUE. How do I retrieve it? '

    Follow the instructions thereto to contact Oracle Certification Support.

    Note:
    - My strong suspiscion is the 1z0-03x exams may be retired soon after Oracle 12c Database becomes production, i.e. at some point during this year. You will get at least 3 months warning ... but it might only be three months.

    Yes -- there is no need to complete your 9i OCP before getting the 11G OCP. The only reason you might want to complete the 9i OCP is if you have already taken the training that would qualify for the required 9i training. In that case, because training is more expensive than the exams, it might be cheaper to complete the 9i OCP then take the 11G upgrade.

    However, your first post seemed to indicated you still needed to take the 9i training. Assuming that, both the 9i and 11G OCP paths for you require two exams and a training course, so my recommendation would be to go directly for 11G.
