Oracle announced two new Oracle certifications for practicing professionals
using the Oracle9i Application Server and Oracle9i Developer Suite. As Oracle's
first credential on the Oracle9i Application Server, the Oracle9i Web Administrator
Certified Associate has been created in response to the global market's
rapid adoption of Oracle's middle tier solutions. The associated curriculum
provides skills for jobs specific to tasks that enable effective administration
including high availability and security.
The new Oracle9i Internet Developer Certified Associate qualification
provides a measurement tool for IT managers, which recognizes proven knowledge
focused on SQL and PL/SQL used for application development and programming
job roles. SQL and Oracle's PL/SQL are industry standards used for many
different kinds of Internet application development projects and also
serve as a basis for more advanced enterprise Internet and intranet development
Both new certifications enable web administrators and developers to demonstrate
to current and prospective employers a competency in Oracle technologies
that can bring their organizations closer to cost saving and productivity
generating e-business solutions giving them the edge over their competition.
Additionally, Oracle announces new advanced curriculum in areas such
as Java, XML (eXtensible Markup Language) and Web services, equiping Oracle
technologists with the tools to maximize their investment in Oracle technology.
