    Oracle Certifications, a very old dream

    Hussam Mohammed

      My story with Oracle started since my first day at university. It wasn’t an academic day but rather we were introduced to the courses of ICT degree including the different technologies that we will be using, I only remember two words ‘Oracle’ and ‘Database’. That was the goal I had until I graduated and started my first job where I had to work with Oracle databases on daily basis. I tried showing up with a better performance, but that had no effect on making me recognized. I though Oracle certifications will be the suitable key that can reflect the skills and knowledge of a database administrator. Here was the major change that took place when I entered the certifications path, in fact during the time I was having the training sessions, I was able to adapt what I learn into the projects assigned to me. Nevertheless, I recently passed the required exams and got the ‘Oracle Database 12c Administrator Certified Associate’. It is a sign of recognition that promoted me to higher levels as well as getting offered with better employment opportunities.


      To be continued in the soon future with (Oracle Database 12c Administrator Certified Professional).
