hello everyone,
after passing the OCA 7 exam, i received an email from youracclaim

Looks like you've been spammed.

This is not a spam. Oracle have some kind of deal with Acclaim.
The Acclaim is a site when you can collect badges that you can use to confirm your certifications in an easy way.
Oracle issues you badges using this site after you successfully pass a certification.
I have received badges for my certifications, too.

Oracle University wrote:Your Oracle Certification credentials are now available as a digital badge that represents the qualifications you have earned. You can now share verified proof of your achievement wherever and whenever you choose.
Promote, verify, and communicate your credentials and achievements in an ever expanding digital marketplace. We have partnered with Acclaim to provide a new badging platform backed by Pearson VUE.
Digital badges communicate your certification achievements.
- a web-enabled version of your credential
- easy-to-use digital badge images for displaying your qualifications on social media sites, networking sites and in email
- easy, valid verification of your credentials
- a place to manage your badges
- a secure means of storing and publishing your credential
- the ability to combine your credentials to form a complete overview of your skills

Expect an email from Acclaim in the coming weeks. Follow the instructions, to claim your badge and begin displaying your verifiable credentials.
If you hold a retired 10g credential, the badge you receive will indicate that it is retired. Candidates who hold this version certification are required to upgrade to a current version of the credential by March 1, 2016 to earn an active database badge
Oracle Certification hopes you enjoy the convenience and recognition this new offering brings.

Best Regards,
The Oracle Certification Team

I concur: definitely not spam! It's a product from Pearson, the world’s leading learning company. I got the same e-mail and registered me as well.

Here you find what Acclaim is all about. It's indeed some kind of your personal Wall of Fame to show your verified achievements to possible employers.

youracclaim.com wrote:Earn and share achievements as digital badges to show employers what you know, where you learned it and why they should hire you. Create a dynamic online portfolio of verified achievements through badges on Acclaim.



I connected my LinkedIn profile to my Acclaim profile. And my OCAJP7 badge was automatically added to the Certifications section of my LinkedIn profile. And when you click on the accompanied link you get all information about who issused this achievement, when it was achieved, what you have to do to get this badge,...

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

Anyone know how long it takes for Oracle to send out the badges please? I've got my OCJP 6 one recently, but I just took my OCJP 7 and am waiting for the YourAcclaim badge/email. Can't find any info as to how long it'll take on the oracle site.

thanks

I suspect there is a lag on processing badges. I got mine for the OCA 8, but not the OCP 8. I took the beta for both so it's been a while.
