"I never thought it possible to absorb this much in such a short space of time." Iain Fox, IBM (Firebrand Oracle certified)

"Firebrand's environment is exceptionally well thought out and provides what must be the perfect environment for accelerated learning." William Evans, Mars (Firebrand Oracle certified)

During the week, you’ll take exams on-site for the following accreditations:

  • Oracle Certified Associate (OCA)
  • Oracle Certified Professional (OCP)

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online OCP & OCA 11g courses
  2. You'll be OCP & OCA 11g certified in just 8 days. With us, you’ll be OCP & OCA 11g trained in record time
  3. Our OCP & OCA 11g course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass OCP & OCA 11g first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn OCP & OCA 11g faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
