A History of (my) Certifications…


I was chatting with the lady doing OCP Lounge registrations at OOW11. During this chat I mentioned I hadn’t received a certificate for the SQL Expert certification. It never crossed my mind to re-request it, since my certifications are visible on certview.oracle.com anyway. Yesterday, a DHL man delivered the missing certificate, which prompted me to look though my certifications and scan this image.

First, check out the card on the bottom right. I was unaware the “Expert” certifications had a different colour card.

Second, notice anything funny about the 9i DBA OCP certification?

It’s hard to believe it’s over 12 years since I first completed one of these certifications… 🙂

  1. Ummm – do you have 3 Oracle 9i OCP cards? Looks we both have all the same DBA certifications – by any chance did you ever get one of those leather jackets for being one of the 1st 100 Oracle 7.3 OCPs? I’ve still got that jacket somewhere in a closet… Hmm, halloween is coming up…

  2. Hi.

    No OCP jacket. I guess I wasn’t one of the early ones. 🙂

    Yes. I was sent 3 cards for 9i. I did the beta exam for 9i, so I got the card as soon as the exam opened for production. Then a few weeks later I got two cards in two days. I guess it was some error during shipping. I just never bothered to throw the extra two away. 🙂
