Current options


Spoiler alert, sad story ahead.

No matter your skills and experience, you should start with SQL exam 1z0-071 (Oracle Database SQL Certified Associate).

Just few years back you could do 1Z0-047 for Oracle Database SQL Expert and 1Z0-117 for Oracle Database 11g Release 2: SQL Tuning. There is no current equivalent for these exam.

Then you should follow with exam 1z0-149 (Oracle Database PL/SQL Developer Certified Professional). For me this was hard exam. It was very similar to 1z0-144, just a 10% harder. Same style of questions, same tricky answers.

Recently you could pass 1z0-144 for Oracle PL/SQL Developer Certified Associate and 1z0-148 for Oracle Database PL/SQL Developer Certified Professional. Both of them are retired now.

And then there is an APEX exam 1z0-750 (Oracle Application Express 18: Developer Certified Professional). No more fancy Expert title.

Maybe if you like data modeling you should check 1z0-006 (Oracle Certified Foundations Associate). It is listed under Administration but it is really only about data model design. And it is cheap exam designed for students as an entry exam.

And thats it. There is nothing else left.

I love Oracle Cloud but that is probably the main reason why these classic certifications are disappearing and thats sad.
