OCA -- correct logo?

Hi,

So I've managed to scrape through the 11g Admin OCA (\o/) and my certview has been updated. Do I have to use the logo specified or can I use the more simple "Oracle Certified Associate" logo which looks better. I've seen the CV of a senior in my team (for the next week anyways) and he simply uses the "Oracle Certified Professional" logo rather than one with 11g & Admin included on there.

The logo I'm talking about is like the one in the guideline document: https://education.oracle.com/education/downloads/ocplogoguidelines.pdf

Edit: should I take the lack of resposnse as "what a ridiculous question, of course you can"? =]

Mike

    Given your forum contributions over your cert journey over the past few months you seem to have put in effort and sweat so I think well and truly justly earning.

    My understanding is it is important to use the logo specified. The Certification Forum Moderator is more authorative.

    I suggest sometimes use of the logo on cv's can be detrimental rather than impressive. It depends on who is reading it.

    I don't normally do logos.

    Hi,

    Thanks but I was hoping to have passed more comfortably :s chose the wrong route too (would have been ready so much more quickly had I gone for the developer route).

    Why would you say it could be detrimental? OCA is meant to be my USP (unique selling point) :-x

    So you don't even have the text on your CV?

    I don't really have room on my CV to include the text which is why I was looking to use the logo (and it's eye catching).

    Actually i have 2 format CV. In format 1 yes i use OCP logo on top of right on my CV, and honestly ppl look this logo while i send CV somewhere. I also have 2th CV format which i dont use logo, I have only "Oracle 10g OCP" entery on my Certification part.

    Honestly it depends who looks your CV, if person who looks you cv has experience he/she mostly check certification part first,but someother person can only look first top of your CV and then they can check your Certificaitons on you related field on your CV.

    Actually its best way to ask it your HR department.I belive they can give more nice answer to its better to put OCP text on CV or not

    I've decided to use the detailed logo because I don't have room to include a section to specify what kind of OCA I will have.

    Hopefully it will cause more positive intrigue of "why does a student have this certification?" and not some detrimental effects~

    I sincerely apologize for the delay in responding. Actually, you should use the logo that is made availalbe to you in CertView (unless, of course, it seems to be wrong - in which case you should contact ocpexam_ww@oracle.com).

    All certified persons will have received notifcation of where the logos are and how to download them:

    - Thus either:-
    - you have received OCA certifcation confirmation but are unable to understand the information you have been sent.
    - Or you have not received certifcation or certification confirmation in which case you cannot use the logo.

    You will be able to access your logo in certview.oracle.com. Here, you will also find the Logo Usage Guidelines.

    There is no certification or logo associated with any of the SQL Fundamentals exams. These exams are only a portion of a larger certification path. You cannot use the OCA logo until you pass one of the Admin 1 exams: 1Z0-042 or 1Z0-052.

    I just want to reiterate what was said above. You are not certified yet and cannot use any Oracle Certification logo. You should ONLY use logos that are provided to you through CertView. There should not be any logos available to you yet in CertView. If there is another source from which you are able to get a logo, you are requested to report it to ocpfraud_ww@oracle.com.
