Well, when 10g certification came out, it said : “will be available in late 2004″. In March 2005, I contacted Oracle University in Germany. They said : keep watching oracle.com/education. Later, it said : “will be available in mid 2005″.
In Open World, I met the certification principal, who meant it will start in December and upgrade from 9i ocm will start in January and will be available in all oracle universities which give RAC course. Fine.
When I came back I saw: “will be available in October”. Today I saw: “will be available in December”.
Such a move like OCM is very intense, I want to plan at least 2-3 weeks full time to prepare for OCM. I need to go to my boss and say : “this year I will go for 10g ocm”. But what a pity if the certification is always delayed… planned for 2004, no info why it did not take place in 2005, I also fair that there is no guarantee for 2006 in switzerland, as they will surely start in the United States – but do not ask why…
Keep cool, be patient 😉
