Oracle 11i E-Business Applications Certification now available

I just mentioned that the blog has now been in existence for two years. Well even before I started this blog I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of the new Oracle Financials and Supply Chain Certification track. Yesterday I got a mail from the Oracle Partner Network (OPN) which suggests that the new certification programme is now close to completion (or maybe it’s just getting started??).

The first exam in the certification track, Oracle 11i E-Business Suite Essentials, is now available and you can attend a course for it or utilise CD based training to cover the exam content. Personally, I’d rather learn off a CD so I think I’ll be going that route. I couldn’t find much more on the Oracle site about these certification tracks and what other exams are going to be included so if you know something I don’t, please add your comments.

The mail from the OPN reads as follows:

Oracle University is announcing the availability of the first 11i eBusiness Applications Certified Professional Consultant programme including:

  • Oracle 11i Financials Certified Professional Consultant
  • Oracle 11i Supply Chain Certified Professional Consultant
  • Oracle 11i Applications Technology Certified Professional Administrator

As a valued OPN Certified partner, Oracle is pleased to invite you to participate in the pre-launch beta exam process!

Special price
During the beta period, all of the exams are available at a special price of US $50. Once the introductory period expires, all online exams will be available at US $90 and testing center based exams will be priced at US $200 (partner and internal discounts apply).

No training required
Typically Oracle requires in-class training as a part of the certification track. However, for this period of time, candidates will receive a waiver for the course attendance requirement. Those candidates who can pass the exams and finish the exam requirements without taking a training course are eligible to do so during this waiver period.
Note: All exams for a track must be completed during the waiver period.

Please be aware that not all of the exams are currently available.
The first exam, 1Z0-200: Oracle 11i E-Business Essentials, is available now! This pre-requisite exam is part of the Oracle 11i Financials and Oracle 11i Supply Chain certification tracks, and is the first step in getting certified.
Expect to see a notification as the other exams become available too.
