Oracle Certification Exam Retirement
The Oracle Certification Program plans to retire the certification paths and exams listed below. All Candidates pursuing a retiring certification path have until the retirement date specified to pass the retiring exam(s).
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.
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.
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.
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.
You will be able to request a printed copy of your certificate for 30 days after your certification path has retired. After that, you can always download and print your eCertificate at certview.oracle.com.
