Should WDP DBA track be withdrawn ?

There are some indicators that in contrast to Oracle DBA shortage a few years ago the supply of non-experienced people coming through the WDP DBA track and gaining OCP DBA certications far outstrips the demand for such certifications.

Added to that the alleged poor training by some WDP providers rifeness and collusion of a proportion of them in encouraging candidates to cheat to obtain certifications resulting in poor quality outcomes and reputation.

There must be a strong possibility it is encouraging individuals who can ill afford it to train for something that will no longer give them a strong likelihood of getting a job; unless they have appropriate experience to match.

On this basis, should the WDP DBA track not be re-evaluated and withdrawn as no longer fit for purpose ?
