Is OCA mandatory for OCP?

Hi there,

My job position requires successful OCPJP exam. My question is that the completed associate (1Z0-803) exam is mandatory before making a try with the Professional one? From my point of view a step by step progression would be better but I am not sure that my boss is willing to pay 2 exams when the requested one could be taken directly. (I can not decide that it is mandatory or not on the information of the official oracle site.)

Cheers

Yes, it is required to do OCA before OCP. In my opinion, it is logical too; one appears in a simpler exam before the "real" exam.

Recently, I learnt that the price is reduced for both the exams. That makes convincing your manager little easy.
