    Currently, Oracle University is working to build an interface that can be used to verify your OCA, OCP or OCM status online.
    At this time, certification status can be verified using the official Oracle Certification Program certificate and/or ID Card that each certified individual is given upon earning their credential.

    If there is a need for further validation, please send an email to ocpexam_ww@oracle.com and place "OCP Credential Validation" in your subject line. If possible, include the certified candidate's Prometric ID number, which is their unique identifier.

    I have taken a digital photo of all my qualifications which I can email for verification if required by potential employers. Sure it makes for a boring online photo album and I rarely get comments like "ooooo, love what you did with the lighting" but, it's really handly... well, I'm sure it'll come in handy... well, it's better to have and not need then to need and not have.....Nobody's ever going to want to see them are they? *head and shoulders slump*

    From my experience, after you got heir, some employer may want to verify what you put on the resume, and they call Oracle and got run around. Finally HR requested the copy of certifications for their records.

    It my opinion that Oracle maintain a web side with all the details so any employer with applicant permission get to review the credential.


    Thanks

    If you know your stuff you'll impress them at the interview and they won't care about proof of your OCP.

    It's becoming increasingly obvious that a trained monkey can pass the OCP so it should have no bearing on employment.

    This is not a bad idea depending on your location.

    In Germany, it is required that all references, degrees, and certs be scanned and sent with the application for a permanent position via email or copied and sent via post.

    A trained monkey may not feel $100 poorer after passing the 9i upgrade, but unfortunately, i do.
