Does 1Z0-001 fit the requirement of 11g DB OCP requirement (pass 1Z0-001 = pass 1Z0-051)?
Please confirm that finishing the SSC (Self-Study Course) DOES NOT apply the "hand-on course requirement ".
Can I just finish ONE course "Oracle 11g Database Administrator Workshop II" from an Oracle authorized education center to fit the " hand-on course requirement " ?
A1 -- Yes, if you passed 1Z0-001, you do not need to take 1Z0-051. When courses are retired, it simply means they are no longer given to *new* students. Anyone who passed them still retains credit for having done so.
A2 -- Self Study CDs do not count for the hands-in requirement. On the approved courses page of OU, it specifically states: "Self Study CD-Rom and Knowledge Center courses are excellent study and reference tools but DO NOT meet the Hands-on Requirement for certification."
A3 -- Only one course is required for the 11G OCP. That one is on the approved list and so will be acceptable if the vendor is authorized by OU.
I have posed the same question as the initiator of this post to an oracle "live chat" representative and he affirmatively stated that I'd to appear for the 1Z1-051 SQL Fundamentals exam and the 1Z0-001 doesn't meet the 11g DBA OCA requirement.
Where else can get an informed answer about this.
The question has come up before. It was brought up in the following thread. In it, I provided a link to yet *another* thread where the question was brought up and confirmed. The last post in the thread at the URL below is from Brandye Barrington, the forum moderator and a Certification Program Manager at Oracle confirming that 1Z0-001 can be used for the 11g DBA certification.
