FAQ
Dear List,

Is it compulsory to take Oracle University courses for OCP upgrade exams
also? I heard that Oracle made it compulsory to take atleast 2 OU courses
to get OCP certification.

Thanks,

    As I understand it the classes are required now to get certified straight
    from nothing to 9i. Only a test is required to go from 8i to 9i. Also, I
    believe it is only one course to get OCP. It is two more advanced courses
    for OCM.
