Does OCA have a course requirement?

To become an "Oracle PL/SQL Developer Certified Associate" are you required to take a course at "Oracle University" or can you self-study?

Also, it seems that to go from an OCA to an OCP you need to learn "Forms". That sucks. I don't care about Forms. Is Forms widely used? Do many people use Forms? Is Oracle using their certification program to promote Forms?

You can do a self-study. But I think you need to pass both SQL and PL/SQL to become a OCA and then pass Forms to become OCP.

I empathize with you, clearing Forms to become an OCP really sucks. I have decided not to do Forms and stop with an OCA.
