Is this certification not very popular now due to mandatory training from Oracle? Few of my fellow colleagues reached out to me in the last 6 months and were very disappointed after coming to know this mandatory training which seems to be overly expensive(Around $2000+ plus loss of work days). Overall it has made this certification around $3000+. We are yet to be fully recovered from the recession and almost 80% of the companies are not going to reimburse this amount for their employees.
So what are the options:
1) Oracle get rid of this mandatory training or make it affordable?
2) People go for other certifications - IBM SOA Architect etc....?
I have done this certification almost 13 months back...here in US i don't see Java Architect job postings which specifically mentions - SCEA/SCEA5/OCMJEA required....i think less than 5% job postings mention it. Though within an organization SCEA/SCEA5/OCMJEA certified folks are treated with respect.
What's your say regarding this? How this certification can regain it's popularity?
