Oracle makes it possible for anyone to earn a specialization certification. Their program allows for “partners,” or individuals outside of the Oracle Company or certification track, to earn an Oracle certification in a wide range of specific products in the applications, database, industries, middleware, and systems fields.
Participants interested in becoming specialized should have the ability to view the “knowledge zones” in each field, which provide information regarding the programs and technologies that are included. A “specialize” tab indicates that the certification is available for specialization, and from there, participants must read through the criteria that must be met in order to earn the specialization.
Candidates must join the knowledge zone(s), complete all specialization requirements, and then apply for specialization by completing the online application. From there, you will begin to reap the benefits of being specialized in one of Oracle’s fantastic career fields. A specialization is considered as more advanced than a normal certification, especially in the eyes of customers who will consider it proof that you are an intelligent, experience, proficient partner ready to assist them in developing and implementing a product solution. With specialization you will also be able to enhance your company and distinguish it from the competition. Additional tools and resource will also become available to you.
Companies with fifty or more Oracle certified implementation specialists can eventually apply for advanced specialization, which offers even more amazing benefits. More information regarding the Oracle PartnerNetwork requirements, benefits, and available specializations can be viewed online at the Oracle website or ExamTrace.
