Hi,
I am trying to find where to purchase exam voucher for SCWCD, when I contacted one of the test centers (Bangalore, India), they said they do not sell the vouchers anymore.
Does someone know where I can buy the exam voucher here and for a discounted price?

Thanks.

Welcome to Coderanch!

You can buy a voucher at Oracle's site

Thanks Frits !
How do I get to know the validity period of the voucher? Also I assume the voucher gets delivered to the address specified while purchasing.

The voucher normally has an expiry date of one year after the purchase.

Also I assume the voucher gets delivered to the address specified while purchasing

I expect that too, however my company normally takes care of ordering them....

When I bought exam vouchers like a year ago, they are sent to you by email not by post.

According to Oracle rep at some Oracle event earlier last year here where I live, vouchers are now 6 months validity instead of one year.

I tried to find any official announcement on the expiry date change, but I couldn't find it in their Official Certification Blog. Maybe they are reconsidering it.....

Hi,
I tried to purchase the voucher at the Oracle's site, however after selecting payment option, it just asked for the reference number, as I was not sure of this ref number, I moved to the next step.
At the end of all the steps, an order was placed for the voucher and it said an email would be sent with further instructions.

My question is this behavior expected or have I missed anything? I was expecting to make the payment with my card and get the voucher right away, which was not the case.
If the above is the correct behavior, then how many days would it take the get the email from oracle and what would be the payment method?

PS:
And just for info, the validity of the voucher is now 6 months as shown in the oracle site.

It seems odd, but you might want to have a Live Chat with the Oracle people and find out if it is correct (check their Certification site to find the link).

Yes, I have just seen they updated all vouchers to a validity 6 months!
