Oracle needs to add some monetary value to this new OCM
I am wondering this will cost you at least $6000, if you pass two days Practicum, first time. One other issue, you need to fly to Chicago, or other city in the USA.
With current economy most of the company will not going to pay $6000 for this new OCM.
I think this will be good for consulting business. Most of the company do not looking for whole square dba with OCM, they just want some one do one or two thing, but do it well.
One other issue, few years back Oracle had other type of OCM. In this track, if you take certain classes from Oracle University, you receive this Certification call Oracle Master. So, how oracle will distingue between this two tracks
Finally, Oracle needs to add some monetary value to this new OCM, without that there will not going to be more than 100 OCM, end of next year.
