Oracle 11g Certified Masters …

I was quite surprised when I received a mail from Oracle that my OCM 11g profile is now online. It turned out that I am one of only 6 people with an 11g OCM profile! Although there might be some others who succeeded in certification and didn´t publish a profile, I am still quite surprised that there are so few. Maybe the run will begin as soon as the full exam is publicly available as currently only upgrades are possible.


Oracle Certified Master 11g

Today, I received a mail from Oracle to inform me that I passed Oracle Certified Master 11g Upgrade Exam. After several weeks of after-work preparations, this is a very satisfying result. If you are OCM 10g and also interested in upgrading, you can find exam schedule and list of objectives here. Good luck.

Tested for Oracle Database 11g Performance Tuning Certified Expert

Last week, I decided to try the newest Oracle 11g certification –

1Z0-054 (1Z1-054): Oracle Database 11g Performance Tuning Certified Expert.

The exam is still in beta, which means that there are LOTS of questions (192 to be precise) in 3 hours. Unfortunately, this was not enough time for me. I had to skip 5-10 text-intensive questions to make it all the way to the end.

I can only recommend to practice a lot with the new 11g Performance Features as well as DB Control.

Unfortunately, now the waiting is only beginning because results won´t be available until 10 weeks after the beta close, which is extended until 30 June 2009. 😉

I might have to try it again after getting some practical experience on the first 11g production database.
