    I'm 8i OCP how to upgrade to 11g

    Kariled-Oracle
      Hello,

      I hold the 8i OCP certification
      then I took the OCA 10g
      now I would like to get OCP certification in 11g
      I dont see an upgrade from 10g OCA to 11gOCA
      What are my options? Do I still need to take the SQL test?

      Best Regards
      Kari

          If you are 10g OCA, you can either:

          - take 10g OCP exam (043)
          - Complete 10g training
          - Submit course form
          - Obtain 10g Certification
          - Take 10g OCP to 11g OCP upgrade exam (050)
          - Obtain 11g certification

          OR

          - take 11g OCA exam (052) - you do not need to re-take the SQL exam if you have already passed it
          - take 11g OCP exam (053)
          - Complete 11g training
          - Submit course form
          - Obtain 11g certification

            I am still with 8i OCP. IS there a path to upgrade to 11g.

            Thanks

              0) Browse certification.oracle.com
              1) Get registered on certview.oracle.com and confirm your certification recorded there. It may be painful I know but better pain now than pain later.
              2) On certview.oracle.com seek - certifications - upgrade my certifcation.

              3) After you have done [1] and [2] please realise they may not explicitly tell the alternative route of 1z0-052+1z0-053+(+an SQL exam if none achieved) will also upgrade an existing DBA OCP as comfirmed in certview certification status to 11g DBA OCP. Before you start on that, confirm it with an SR unless the Certification Forum Moderator or other authority confirms it here. Otherwise use the upgrades as per [2] above.
