Do I need to take up the mandatory course for appearing Part 1 exam of OCEA...? I contacted Oracle Univ, but the support staff was not sure, and got my number for call back...

If the answer is "Yes", at the end of Part 1 exam, will there be any mail on Part 1 result or Score card that will be provided...?

No. You can take part 1 before the course.

I just had a chat with Oracle support staff and she confirmed that the course is mandatory for taking up part 1 exam... Is there any reference or pointer you have that confirms that this is NOT required... appreciate your help in this regard...

On the Oracle Website it says step 1 of getting the certification is "Complete Training"

Jeane - Need your help & inputs here... I did read your response to the same question in different thread and i just read the SCEA experience that you posted as welll (part 1)... I see you completed part 1 in July and its hard to think Oracle has made the course mandatory now... can you clarify please...? (The support staff was not sure of the question when i asked 1st time and when i contacted her 2nd day, she said 'Yes').. should i try to talk to someone else from Oracle on this...?

Also i completely agree with your point of view, of clearing part 1 and using that credential in the resume... of course its not easy to afford to pay for the course so part 1 will do for me (for now)...

looking forward to your inputs...

Took a look at the bottom of that website it says:

"Steps do not have to be completed in sequence, but certification will not be granted until all required steps have been completed. In paths that require training, course should be completed before completing Course Submission Form. "

Sivakumar,
I took all three parts of the exam before the course was required at all. My comment about it not being required to take part 1 comes from the quote Cathal posted along with people who have posted here about their more recent experiences. We also talked about it a lot here when the course requirement was new. It was clear that you could take/score part 1 without the course. It was less clear whether you could take parts 2/3 and get a score before taking the exam.
