Hi All,
I am new to OCP and decided to do my OCP-DBA 9i track few weeks back. I have just come to know that Oracle has introduced a new Hands-On Course requirement for those looking to become Oracle Certified Professionals (OCPs).
Following are my queries :
1) Is there any way to do my OCP 9i track without doing any hands-on courses?
2) What If I give my first paper on 8i track i.e. Introduction to SQL and PL/SQL (1Z0-001) and then remaining 3 on 9i track?
3) Is OCA exempted from prior hands-on courses? What if I prepare for OCA? If I decide later to complete my OCP, Would I need to complete hands-on training first?
4) I live in Pakistan and I couldn't find any authorized oracle education centre or partner in Pakistan on oracle website....so sad.... wait...may be Pakistanis are exempted from prior training requirements...right?
Please help me as I was so motivated few weeks back and almost completed the first paper preparation before I heard this sad news.
Thanks and Regards

First do 8i and then upgrade to 9i, thas how you can avoid the requirement


2) What If I give my first paper on 8i track i.e. Introduction to SQL and PL/SQL (1Z0-001) and then remaining 3 on 9i track?


you can do that but it will not exempt you from the course requirement.


3) Is OCA exempted from prior hands-on courses? What if I prepare for OCA? If I decide later to complete my OCP, Would I need to complete hands-on training first?


I dont have any idea abt this, its infact a nice question.
