Oracle Certifications

Professional Distinction Recognized Across Industries

Stand out from the competition

Being able to show what you know and can do helps differentiate you from the competition—whether you are preparing for college, applying to a graduate program, or competing for a job, internship or promotion. Oracle Academy’s courses align to Oracle professional certifications offered through Oracle University, which means you can demonstrate your database and Java knowledge and skills with a distinction that is recognized by IT professionals and industries.

Oracle certifications are professional certifications, and achieving them requires study, practice, and preparation. To help ensure success, we recommend completing an Oracle Academy course first (or having the same level of knowledge) and preparing thoroughly for your certification exam.

All Oracle Academy Institutional Members are eligible for discounts of 50 percent on Oracle certification practice exams through Kaplan IT Training, and receive discounts of 25 percent on Oracle certification exam vouchers. Members can access these benefits in the Member site under “Discounts” on the home page or on the left side menu bar. Not an Institutional member? Join here.
