I was interested in taking up a certification
Oracle E-Business Suite R12 Supply Chain Certified Expert Consultants, Purchasing
Following is the path :
STEP 1 – COMPLETE TRAINING
Complete one of the approved courses.
STEP 2 – PASS THIS EXAM
Oracle EBS R12: E-Business Essentials 1Z0-204
STEP 3 – PASS THIS EXAM
Oracle E-Business Suite R12: Inventory and Purchasing Fundamentals 1Z0-225
STEP 4 – COMPLETE THIS FORM
Complete the Course Submission Form
But I do not want to take up any training as mentioned in Step 1 so can you please suggest me if I can take step 3 directly ?
You can take any exam you would like without taking a training class. If a particular certification requires a course submission form, however, you won't be certified until you take the training. You could pass the exam first and then take the training but that generally doesn't make a great deal of sense unless you're planning on fulfilling the training requirement by taking a more advanced class (I'd have to look at the list of acceptable training classes for this certification to see whether or not there is an advanced class that meets the training requirements).
