No certification pack issued by Oracle/Sun

Dear all,

I have completed the part 2&3 exam on July 30, 2010, and waited for many weeks for grading. I contacted oracle to request for the result and they asked me to resubmit part 2 again. I waited again and finally I was notified I am certified in mid dec.

Another mail told me that my cert pack is delivered and will arrive in 6 weeks, I waited again. Few weeks ago I queried oracle I did not get my cert pack. They answered me that I could not get it because for those who certified after nov 30, 2010 won't receive a cert pack but only a ecopy.

How comes? The progress of grading would make me lost of my cert?

I am not sure if this is specific to your geographic reason(it would be extremely weird if it is) but i completed my certification in January this year and i have been issued a certificate and a card..(lapel pin missing though)..

Hi,
Sorry to hear about your frustrating wait. Did you try to email Oracle at suncert_ww@oracle.com? I wrote my exam in Dec 2010 and got the certificate in mid February 2011. I only got a paper copy of my certificate and not ecopy. Please contact Oracle again. By the way do you see that you are certified in the CertManager/Certification database website?

I got an email notice in about 10 days after I submitted my part 2.

I communicated with architect-submit-us@oracle.com already.... their reply was ....

Please note after November 30, 2010, Certification kits for any Sun-branded certifications that were earned
prior to September 1, 2010 will be sent via email in soft copy (i.e. hard copies of certificates no longer sent) You should log into your account at the Sun Certification database at http://www.certmanager.net/sun in order to verify/update your email address we have on file. Once your email address is verified, you may then send us an email at suncert_ww@oracle.com to request your eCertificate. Please state in your email that you have verified your email address and include either your Prometric Testing ID or your Sun Candidate ID. Your new eCertificate will be mailed once we receive your request.
Regards,
OCP Team


It seems to me that I was cheated by Sun/Oracle..... i used efforts to work hard on the certifications but just got nothing from them in return...... ecopy certification...... you know, we can make it up by paintbrush !!!

do you know is there any way for getting it ? any complaints we can file ?

Here is what I got from architect-submit_US@oracle.com on Mar 2, 2011.

Congratulations! You have passed the Oracle Certified Master, Java EE 5 Enterprise Architect certification. You are among the elite 1% of certified Java professionals who have gone on to achieve the Java Enterprise Architect certification.

Your certificate package is being processed for shipping. Look for a certificate in the mail in approximately 4 to 6 weeks.

Thank you for all your efforts with this certification, and good luck in your future endeavors with Java.

Please let us know if we may provide further assistance.
Regards,
OCP Team


You may want to double check with them.

Eric,
I think that just reflects they've fully changed the branding to Oracle and can't print Sun ones anymore. Like a cutoff point. People who pass after the cutoff are getting Oracle branded certs. It's unlucky timing for you of course.

yup, it is the administration issues. If it was the case, it should not allow me to register in prometric, or simply cut the examination under Sunmicrosystem at that time and request me to apply oracle exam...... it is totally unreasonable.....

I have just email to oracle again. I believe my case is very rare and hope they can help on my exceptional case..... you know... I started my java examination in year 2002 and all of them were good and smooth..... but after taking over by oracle, it seems that the world was changed..... no one reply me at that email address..... wait wait and wait..... oracle told me they could not find my assignment and requested me to resend again...... delay delay and delay..... asked me to do lots of things....... but in return.....

really angry about it this time.......

I just got the certification package from Oracle after 4 weeks since I got the results. In the CertManager database there is a section Certificates Mailed - Past 60 days. I was able to see there that the certification was processed.
