Hello all forum members. I am new to the website here and hope to get informed from the expertise of seniors here :).
I am interested in Oracle certifications. I was thinking if I can pursue Oracle Certified Expert OCE exam without having OCA and OCP certifications icon_rolleyes.gificon_cry.gif. Can I pursue them just like in Cisco you can pursue CCIE directly without owning CCNA CCNP certifications. For the time being I am interested in Database Certifications of Oracle. So I mean OCE in SQL administration or whatsoever its called.

    Thanks man. But I doubt what you said is true. Because I looked it up myself and the OCE or OCM certifications need preceding certifications like OCA, OCP and then comes OCM. icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif icon_profileright.gif
    But still I look up your suggested links and let you know. icon_cheers.gif

    From what I see, it does appear that you have to go through the OCA --> OCP --> OCE path. When you click on the prerequisite certs, they take you to the lower level. Oracle isn't doing a very good job outlining the requirements.

    Yes. You are spot on. There is no direct attempt path to OCE/OCM certifications without first completing OCA and OCP certifications. I had a very detailed analysis back a month ago and found out that these OCA is prerequisite for OCP and OCP is prerequisite for OCM/OCE. Thanks for sharing your view about it, sir. Appreciated it a lot :)icon_cheers.gif
