The demand for professionals in information technology (IT) is high and the competition for jobs is intense. Individuals, experienced or new to the profession, need to know what skills make them attractive to employers. Employers look for ways to distinguish employees and prospective employees that have the solid foundation of skills needed for effective performance.
The Oracle Certified Associate and Professional Program helps the IT industry make these distinctions by establishing a standard of competence in specific job roles. An Oracle Certification is a valuable, industry-recognized credential that signifies a proven level of knowledge and ability.
The Oracle Certified Associate/Professional Program can give you a distinct advantage. This certification demonstrates that you have solid understanding of a job role and Oracle products used in that role. Being an Oracle Certified Professional can help raise your visibility and increase access to the industry’s most challenging opportunities.
The Oracle Certified Associate/Professional Program is also valuable to hiring managers who want to distinguish among candidates for critical IT positions. For companies that send employees through annual IT training, certification ensures a return on the training investment by validating the knowledge and understanding gained at training sessions. Companies can also combine certification with an employee development program to enhance employee loyalty and performance on the job.
Hiring certified professionals has a direct impact on a company’s bottom line, as these conclusions from a research study by International Data Corporation** suggest:
Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.
Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

K.H. (7/6/2009 to 14/6/2009)
"There were four people on the course and it was pretty intensive. The instructor to student ratio was perfect and enable to get enough instructor time. It was very long hours and additional studying in your rooms. It's a full on course and worth while doing, assuming you can keep awake."
