The Oracle Database 11g Performance Tuning Certified Expert certification is designed to validate the skills and abilities of IT professionals who work in any capacity with the auto tuning features of the 11g Oracle database. Candidates for this certification commonly include database administrators, technicians, engineers and even technical consultants.
There are two paths candidates can take to earn the Oracle Database 11g Performance Tuning Certified Expert certification. The first requires the completion of one certification exam, the Oracle Database 11g Performance Tuning exam (IZ0-054), and candidates must also hold a valid, prior certification as an Oracle Certified Professional in Database Administration with the 11g.
The second path for earning this certification requires candidates to complete an Oracle approved training course on the 11g performance tuning subject matter as well as to successfully pass the IZ0-054 exam. A course completion form must also be submitted before finalizing exam requirements. Approved training courses and the applicable form can be found on the Oracle website's certification page for the OCE Oracle Database 11g Performance Tuning certification.
