          Oracle currently offers the following official certifications on PeopleSoft:
          PeopleSoft Human Capital Management
          PeopleSoft Human Resources 9 Consultant Certified Expert
          PeopleTools 8 Application Developer Certified Expert
          PeopleTools Advanced Developer Certified Expert
          PeopleSoft General Ledger 9 Consultant Certified Expert
          Payables Certified Implementation Specialist
          Receivables Certified Implementation Specialist

          There is no specific PeopleSoft Admin certification, because the PeopleSoft Architecture is modular, meaning you can run
          Webserver (Weblogic, Websphere)
          OS (Linux, Solaris, Windows, etc)
          DB (Oracle, DB2, MS SQLServer, etc)
          etc

          If you want any certification, I would suggest to certify yourself in any (or all) of these separate components

            Despite that's absolutely right, doesn't the same applied to eBusiness Suite ? I don't know well this latter product, but unless I'm wrong there's an admin certification for eBusiness.
            I think it would be a valid request for Peoplesoft world as well like the ones existing for eBusiness, for instance :
            Oracle E-Business Suite R12 System/Database Administrator Certified Expert
            Oracle E-Business Suite R12 Project Certified Implementation Specialist

            And since Oracle owns all the layers in their basket, it should really be doable : OS - Oracle Linux, PIA - Weblogic, Tuxedo, and of course the database.

              I absolutely agree with you.

              What I have learned as a consultant in the past decade, is that if you are smart enough to notice something, your are most likely smart enough to do something about it...

              What I am trying to say is that maybe YOU could create a certification program. Who better than the peoplesoft admin guru could do this?

              @Oracle, how about Nicolas creates a certification program for Peoplesoft Admin? ;)

                Hey Hakan, thanks for the kind words. There's 2 things I don't like in the certifications I've seen so far :
                - multiple-choice questions (this is not creative)
                - ambiguity of the questions, sometimes confusing especially for non-english native

                That's a lot of work to build such exam, it could be an interesting exercise though. I'll keep it in mind.

                Nicolas.
