Hey Folks,
As you may or may not know, Oracle has switched from Prometric to Pearson Vue to handle their certifications.
According to the their website if you received your SCJD project before Jan 2008 then it is in fact out of date & they will not correct my submission, unfortunately I received from SCJD exam before 2008 from Prometric.
I understood that the SCJD certificate did not have a time limit on when I could submit my project but it looks like now I will have to resubmit to Oracle & Pearson Vue for a new certification & pay again.

Is there anything that can be done in this situation?

Thanks
Rob

Yes. You send an e-mail to suncert_ww@oracle.com and ask what you have to do in your situation. I'm afraid you'll get some bad news and you'll have to buy the voucher again. And they will not discuss about that (because they announced it 3 months before changing the time limit).

Good luck!

Yeah its looking like I will have to pay again
Do you know anything about getting a discount for being a partner of Oracle, as I work for IBM?
Also I see now they give you a 6 month deadline to complete both part 1 & part 2 of the assignment which is fair enough, but do you know if I book it before Aug 1st I will avoid the need to do the mandatory education course even if I submit the project after Aug 1st?

Thanks
Rob

1/ I don't go over Oracle's finances, so no idea if you can get a discount

2/ You need to submit before August 1, 2011; otherwise you'll have to take the mandatory course
