Effective June 1, 2011 – Java, Oracle Solaris, MySQL, and NetBeans certification exams are being delivered through our new test delivery vendor — Pearson VUE — and are no longer available through Prometric. This consolidates all Oracle Certification exams within the operations of a single testing vendor, allowing us to best streamline our processes and service. Pearson VUE currently offers certification testing in more than 5,000 test centers worldwide, and we believe this will provide excellent service and global testing coverage for these Oracle certification exams.
Candidates can now visit Pearson VUE to find more information, register for an exam or locate a testing center in their area. Note that existing Oracle exam vouchers will continue to be valid as long as they have not expired.
It is important that you create a Pearson VUE account now so that you can continue to register for Oracle Certification exams:
- Go to MyAccount on Pearson VUE and select Create A New Web Account and follow the prompts to create a profile and enter your contact information. See our tutorial video as well as these detailed steps for reference.
- IMPORTANT: Be sure to enter your profile and contact information on the next screens as it exists in your Oracle profile at CertManager, as the system will perform an automated process to match the record you are creating with the record that was uploaded from Oracle.
- If Pearson VUE is not able to match your record, you will be placed in a queue and will be contacted by Pearson VUE within 72 hours for verification.
Also, if you schedule a Java, Oracle Solaris (Cluster), MySQL, or NetBeans exam with Pearson VUE between May 16, 2011 and August 1, 2011, you will receive access to a set of practice questions at no cost.
