Oracle introduces Recertification

So today I was disappointed to read that Oracle introduced a recertification requirement for the Oracle Database Administrator certificates:

The Oracle Certification Program is implementing a recertification requirement for our Oracle Database Administration credentials.
This new policy requires you as an Oracle Database credential holder to demonstrate your currency with the most recent trends, techniques and best practices in Oracle Database technology.

More details can be found on the new website for these new requirements.

Recertification, really? And probably you’ll then proceed to tell me that I need to attend an Oracle University course to upgrade my certification to a newer release, yeah? This is bullshit…


Oh no, new comments are currently disabled.
