Questions

Will retakes of the retiring exams be allowed after the retirement date?

No. Candidates who fail a retiring Oracle Certification Program exam will be able to retake the exam only BEFORE the retirement date. Candidates should keep in mind that there is a 14-day waiting period to retake an Oracle certification exam. Schedule your exam appointment to allow enough time to retake a failed exam should the need arise. Please see above for specific dates.

Are there alternative certification paths for candidates who do not pass a retiring exam by the retirement date?

An alternate path option would typically be a later version of a retiring credential or exam. We have listed these alternatives for you in the tables above.

Will new versions of the certifications and or exams be released?

Sometimes new versions of certifications will already be available or will be in the planning stages. Information specific to each retiring certification exam or path is posted in the table above.

I have completed all the exams in my 10g DBA OCP path, but I have not yet completed training. Once I complete training and submit the course form, will I be able to obtain the certification?

For any retiring 10g certification, you will have 6 months from the retirement date to complete the course submission form and provide details of your required training. After that time, it will not be possible to earn any Oracle Database 10g certification.
