Can you take the Parts 1, 2, 3 first and then take the mandatory training later?

Due to budget constraints and targets I guess, I have intentions of completing the three parts of OCMJEA for JEE5 this year. And then attend the mandatory training after knocking these 3 parts down later next year. I am already quite experienced and performed architecture tasks at some capacity.

Will I still get certified even if I deviate from the order that Oracle said in the OCMJEA 5 site?

1) My intended order will be : Part 1 Exam -> Part 2 Assignment -> Part 3 Essay -> Mandatory Training (which is really expensive).
2) Or is it strict that I follow this order : Mandatory Training -> Part 1 Exam -> Part 2 Assignment -> Part 3 Essay?

Hoping someone to shed some light and experience on this. Thanks!

You can do the mandatory training anywhere anytime. Oracle will not issue the cert unless you have done the training even though you pass all 3 parts.

Good luck with your prep.
