certification - 10g to 11g

(didn't find a more appropriate section, so I'll post it here)

Hi all,

Is it possible to take the 11g OCP exam, holding a 10g OCA certification?
the link:
http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=458&get_params=p_track_id:Datab11g

just says (as prerequisites) OCA certification. not 10g or 11g.

Thank you.

BR,
Pinela

    I think the best way is to ask that question directly to the Oracle Education Center by phone:

    I don't think you can go.

    What you can do is

    - pass 1Z0-043 (http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=41&p_org_id=1001&lang=US&p_exam_id=1Z0_043)

    - complete one of the required courses and submit the course form

    - pass the 1Z0-050 upgrade exam to upgrade 10g DBA OCP to 11g DBA OCP

    It's like do a 10g OCP first and upgrade to 11g OCP.


    btw, Please mark the thread as 'answered', if you feel you got your question answered. This will save the time of others who search for open questions to answer.

    Helios,

    Don't see my answer there. Just what I posted in my original description.
    It just says OCA.
    And I asked if this is any OCA or just 11g one.
    In this thread it has been said that it can't (marked as helpful).

    can it?

    Of course. I will mark this answered when I get a clear answer.
    Thank you.

    BR,

    I'm not sure why you just don't call Oracle and keep a question open which is off-topic here anyway.

    Hello Sybrand,

    This seems like a simple question to be answered in the oracle forums (at least I thought it would be).
    And it is open because I'm not sure if I have the answer.
    I have a "not it can't" answer, and then some more references to links and pages where I also don't see a clear answer.

    Can you suggest a forum section on which this question would be on-topic? (the suggeste link was also in General questions).
    I will gladly try and move it (if possible) or repost it there.

    BR,
    Pinela.

    Hi
    I am not sure which part of the link that Helios posted is not clear.
    If you observe more carefully, the first diagram mentioned about the path to get the OCA 11g, and in the bottom said, next step is OCP.
    and then you continue to the next path which is to get OCP 11g. that link is only for 11g. so it is not for 10g.

    for upgrade, look at this http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=44#db

    as for the appropriate forum is the certification forum Certification

    Hope that help

    hello 668840,

    Thank you for your reply.
    Is is not clear because the ocp path says this:

    STEP 1 - PRIOR CERTIFICATION
    Oracle Certified Associate

    not 10g or 11g.

    if it is so clear, please help me with a "yes it is", or "no it isn't" possible answer.
    That is all I want to know. I must be explaining myself poorly, because I didn't mean to offend anyone.

    Thank you for the correct forum. I will wait for your answer, and then, mark my question answered whatever the conclusion, and try the other forum again.

    BR,
    Pinela.

    Hi Pinela.
    the diagram you refer to is related with the previous diagram about the OCA 11g Path.
    so in my opinion, the answer is no.

    However, if you reposted your question in the certification forum you will get answer from oracle in there, or go to support section in the education.oracle.com
    they provide live chat too if you need further info.

    Hope that help

    ok.
    thank you for that.

    I will go to the certification forum.
    have 2 "no"s.
    I also think it can't, but an oracle rep, said in december it was possible.
    And I was trying to see here, and ppl thought.

    I'm going to your suggested section. (but first, let me try the live chat :) )

    Thank you again VERY much for your help, and thank you to the rest of the repliers.

    BR,
    Pinela.

    AFAIK the certification tracks accept the exams of the same release. So if you have passed 042 of 10g OCA than you are supposed to write 043 of 10g OCP and not 053 of 11g. This is what is going to be the answer that we can tell you. If you want a more definite answer, you must check the Certification forum where the program manager of Oracle certifications gives the answers herself whenever she comes over the forum. Till then , the answer for your question would be "no it isn't" .

    Aman,

    Thank you.
    I entered the live chat and this was the answer I got.
    "No, you need to be 11g OCA to be 11g OCP. There is no upgrade available from 10g OCA to 11g OCP."
    Very helpful the chat. Never tried it before.

    Thank you again.

    As I said, you must follow the series in the order it is so after 42, its just seems more logical that the next exam would be 043. Glad that finally you got your doubt cleared officially. Good luck for the next exam!
