OCMJEA Mandatory Training Questions

I just finished my OCMJEA Essay and now I'm waiting for my results (really hoping for the best..). I want to take advantage of the upcoming holidays where work is easy and relaxed (plus my vacation, sadly) to take on the mandatory training. Regardless if I pass/fail on the assignment & essay, I will take the training anyway so I won't wait for my results. I'll probably try and try until I pass. Anyway, I have a few questions about the mandatory training:

Is it OK to purchase the course from the Oracle country site where the cost is much cheaper? For example, there's a significant difference among the training costs for the course "Developing Applications for the Java EE 6 Platform":

$3600 from Oracle US
$1187.35 (Php 53395) from Oracle Philippines
$913.52 (Rs 56570) from Oracle India

1) If I'm going for the Live Virtual Class Training where internet is the only requirement, I'll probably buy the the cheapest one. Is this a valid strategy, and have anyone ever done this before?
2) If my vacation is in India/Philippines, can I take the training there? And will Oracle still honor this training?

Hi,
I had similar doubts. What Oracle told me was that you should take the training from the country where you live and hold a valid banking account. That, for me, is India and I took it from here.
Good luck with your OCMJEA exam results!

I did this accidentally, because my browser location was set to a different region. They refused my payment and had to purchase the course again. Even if you want to attend a LVC they will not allow you to register to a course at a different region.

Denise,
For #3, I recommend asking Oracle. And getting the answer in writing in case it is a problem later.
