ORACLE INCREASES COST OF ORACLE9i DBA CERTIFICATION New "Instructor-Led" Training Requirement Costs at Least US$1500

On June 15, 2002, Oracle sent an email to a select group of Oracle9i certification candidates that announced that all new Oracle9i certification candidates (those who have not yet taken an Oracle9i DBA exam) MUST take at least one "instructor-led class" from Oracle Education.

EXEMPTIONS / OPTIONS
The date the email was sent (Saturday, June 15) was coincidentally the deadline for qualifying for exemption from this new requirement. In other words, Oracle announced this new requirement without allowing anyone to exempt themselves through the stated method of exemption ("having already completed at least one exam toward earning their OCP credential before June 15, 2002").

If you've already taken an exam in the Oracle9i DBA track, don't worry you are exempt from this new requirement. If you are an Oracle9i DBA candidate who has yet to take a certification exam, forget about exempting yourself from this new requirement. Instead, focus on your options for working with or around this requirement.
