Breaking news all!
New slots for the OCI free exam certifications are open, the earliest that I saw a opening was on July 6th, even the less we now have more time to study and no charge at all!
Click on the link to book your exam for free.
In the last week all slots for the exams were full and I tried to schedule one for me but could not find any stop until May 15th which this program would end but now they are open but dont know until when so rush and schedule yours while they are available.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about. Last March 30th , it was announced that OCI training and certification exams were free for 6 OCI related programs.
- Oracle Autonomous Database Specialist
- Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Foundations Associate
- Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Cloud Operations Associate
- Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Developer Associate
- Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Architect Associate
- Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Architect Professional
This lo’s of people are taking advantage of it as you have quality training (not enough for the certification alone but I will get to it), and most important the with no exam fee.
The trainings are good, video recordings similar to the ones I mentioned here in this post. Why I say it is not enough, because you have access only to the videos, not to any E-Kit related material which is complementary to the training so if you want to practice and get a bit deeper, which you will need if you want to pass, you will have to do some digging on your own.
I managed to take 2 certifications Autonomous Database Specialist and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Foundations Associate. I scheduled 2 more as they are for July I will have time to prepare for them.
Also please read the OCI related FAQ for this program which will clear several points, like you have one free change per exam and If you schedule an exam directly through the Pearson VUE website, you won’t receive this discount.
Hope it helps and good luck
