Hi folks,
I have submit the essay at 25th October. Since on the Oracle site stays, that 4-6 weeks need to wait for grade, I send them an email, regarding my application after 7 weeks.
However, they reply to me with and email, telling me that grade of my application will be deliver to me within 3-4 weeks.
Nevertheless, it have been passed 7 weeks, and still not response I got.
Is it worth to send them additional mail, or just to wait for response?
What do You think?

Hello,

I hope you are aware that from Oct 1st 2011 Oracle has introduced the mandatory training course. I hope you have seen this link
Here it is mentioned that after essay you need to submit the form where you need to mention the course details. Go here and see the section "who should submit the form"

hope this helps.

Hi Shashi.
I have purchase the voucher for part II at December of 2010, and took part II and part III at October of 2011. No one mentioned any course, nor they did in an email they sent to me.
Now I am confused

on the page you post Course Submission Form , they said :

Who should submit it?

All candidates pursuing an Oracle Certified Professional, Oracle Certified Master or Expert certification path, which requires training, who have attended the approved hands-on course.


However, just as I wrote, I purchase voucher for part II practically at 2010, when such a requirement did not exists (and everything regarding taking exam over Prometric, went perfectly smooth ( )

Goran,
Did you get certified though? You are supposed to be able to take all three parts regardless of whether you have taken the course. It's the final cert that gets held up without a course.

Jeanne, would You be nice to explain to me clearly what should I do next, in a few steps (Like: 1. DO that, 2. Do this.).
I do not understand what course they require now, and why people from Oracle, complicated entirely stuff regarding OCMJEA certificate.
I mean should not it been precise and smooth. I am really disappointed by professionalism of Oracle, last few months.

Thank You very much in advance
