Ready for the Next Generation of Oracle Database Administration Certification?

 Aug 23, 2019

Get ready for new features, streamlined steps to certification, simpler upgrade paths, and a fully integrated certification path.

Oracle Database 19c is the long term support release of the Oracle Database 12c and 18c family of products, offering customers the best performance, scalability, reliability and security for all their operational and analytical workloads.

Oracle Database Administration 2019 Certified Professional is the new certification credential for Oracle Database 19c Administrators.

There is one credential, earned by passing two exams, and no hands-on course requirement.

This is a break from traditional DBA certification paths that awarded an Oracle Certified Associate certification on the path to Oracle Certified Professional, and required a hands-on training course in order to earn the credential.

Oracle training is still a very important part of preparing for these certification exams, but removing the hands-on training requirement allows some space around how, when, and where candidates access training, putting you more in control of your own journey.

Earning this certification requires passing two exams:

  • Register for exam Oracle Database Administration I | 1Z0-082
  • Register for exam Oracle Database Administration II | 1Z0-083

Now. . . how do you prepare for these new exams?

Well how you prepare all depends on your experience. Below is an overview, but the fastest way is to request a call back and we can help you through the process.
