    Db certification options for 9i trained DBAs in 2014




      Looking for some affirmation please...


      My background is; I took Oracle 9i courses a few years ago but was not experienced enough to feel confident with the exams. Having now gained some good experience I would now like to start with the Associate certification but I'm not sure what the best path is for me despite scouring the Oracle University website.


      Ideally, I would like to take a 9i OCA and use my existing training materials and then upgrade to 11g/12c so that I don't need to take further training covering similar topics.


      The confusion I have is I cannot find a 9i SQL certification exam? Has this been dropped? Is 12c the only supported material for the SQL exam now? Will I have this problem with the OCP exams or am I correct in saying that the 9i OCP exams are still available?


      Any tips from your own experience would be much appreciated. Many Thanks
