    Becoming OCP

    DBA_1976
      Hi,
      To become an OCP, we have to complete some trainings before writing the 1z0-053 exam. Is SSC format of training accepted for this?

      Thanks,

            I looked and searched the whole certification pages. I was not able to find about the specific training formats that are accepted for OCP. My doubt about SSC (self study course) is, that its cost is low and all the other formats have the same cost for all the courses. That's why I am not sure, if I take the SSC, will it be accepted for the OCP.

              Hmmmm ... dba in your monicker there may be .... querying the Oracle database great you may be ... querying the oracle certification website perhaps not so good?

              "Self Study CD-Rom and Knowledge Center courses are excellent study and reference tools but DO NOT meet the Hands-on Requirement for certification. "

                If cost is an issue, you can also see if there are any Workforce Development and Primavera Programs offered near you. WDP programs generally are not up to the same level of quality as the same training from Oracle Education, but it is considerably cheaper and counts towards the hands-on requirement.

                  Yes, you are correct. I contacted the oracle thru live chat, and I was told that SSC is not accepted for OCP.

                  Thanks for your reply
