Oracle Selects Pearson VUE to Deliver Java, Oracle Solaris, MySQL and Other Former Sun Certification Exams Sun


Effective June 1, 2011, Java, Oracle Solaris, MySQL, and NetBeans certification exams will be offered exclusively through a new test delivery partner — Pearson VUE — and will no longer be available through Prometric. This will consolidate all Oracle Certification exams within the operations of a single testing vendor so we can provide better service and global testing coverage for these Oracle certification exams. Pearson VUE currently has over 5,000 test centers worldwide in 165 countries.

To help prepare you for this transition, here are some important dates for you to be aware of:

  • If you are currently following a certification path and are planning to take an exam on/after June 1: Registration will begin at Pearson VUE on May 16, 2011 for all scheduled exams on or after June 1. Visit pearsonvue.com/oracle on or after May 16 to create a new web account and get started.
  • If you are currently registered to take an exam with Prometric or planning to take an exam before June 1: You can continue to register at Prometric through May 23, 2011 (walk-in registrations will be permitted through May 31, 2011), but you must complete your exam by May 31, 2011.
  • If you currently have a Sun or Oracle exam voucher or exam retake voucher: All vouchers will still be valid through their original expiration date and will be redeemable with Pearson VUE starting on May 16, 2011.

ACTION REQUIRED ON May 16, 2011:
Beginning May 16, 2011 it will be important for you to create a new Pearson VUE account so you can access your certification history and register for new exams after the transition. We will post instructions on how to set up your new account at Pearson VUE and if you have a testing account with Prometric - how to ensure that your old and new accounts are correctly linked.
