I am interested in pursuing the OCP credential in the Application Developer track (NOT DBA path) for Oracle 9i.
Do I still have take the courses offered by Oracle?
In the Oracle web-site it clearly says
"Candidates who wish to obtain the Oracle9i DBA OCP credential must attend one instructor-led inClass or instructor-led online course from the list below in order to become certified (in addition to the exam requirements)
which means the course requirement is compulsory only for the DBA path. I have heard varying versions for this.
