Neither Oracle’s authorized testing vendors nor Oracle’s partners are responsible for lost or stolen vouchers. Exam registrations paid for with an OCP Exam Voucher must be completed before the voucher expiration date. Expired Oracle Certification Exam Vouchers have no value and will not be extended.

Oracle University and Oracle University authorized resellers may sell OCP Exam Vouchers. Oracle and Pearson VUE, its test delivery partner, do not guarantee the authenticity of vouchers that are obtained from any individuals or entities other than Oracle or Oracle authorized resellers. Individuals who acquire and use counterfeit vouchers and/or certification vouchers obtained from an unauthorized source may be subject to program sanctions at the discretion of Oracle, including a lifetime ban on taking all future exams and the nullification of all previous exam results and certifications. Oracle will not compensate candidates for counterfeit vouchers or vouchers obtained from an unauthorized source.

If the candidate does not pass on the first attempt, this voucher can also be used for one retake of the same exam.

Oracle Certified Master (OCM) Exam: The OCM exam is a rigorous exam intended for experienced and qualified candidates only. Candidates agree to thoroughly review the exam qualifications and requirements posted on the Certification website before attempting to complete an OCM level exam.
 

OCM exam events are completed over 1 day of testing for upgrade exams and 2 days of testing for the full exam.  Candidates must score at a minimum threshold upon the completion of day 1 in order to attend and complete day 2 of testing.  Candidates will be notified at the end of day 1 if they have not reached the scoring minimum to return for day 2.  OCM exam fees are non refundable and candidates are not provided a refund if they do not qualify for day 2 of testing.

The exam is conducted in a dedicated Oracle University classroom environment and administered to ensure fairness and security. An Oracle proctor facilitates the event by delivering skillsets and adhering to specific skillset time frames. The proctor does not score the exam and does not have access to scoring information.

All skillsets have time limitations that require participants to employ best practices in order to successfully complete assigned tasks. Each skillset explicitly describes the required end state that participants must achieve.

Participants are not allowed to use personal documentation or notes during the OCM exam, nor will they be permitted to collaborate with other participants. Cell phones, pagers, PDAs, and similar electronics will not be allowed in the OCM classroom. Participants may use the notepad on their desktop to keep notes during the OCM exam. Participants must agree to the same guidelines that apply to all Oracle Certification candidates. These guidelines can be found in the Oracle Certification Program Candidate Agreement. Divulging OCM exam content is a violation of Oracle’s Fraudulent Activity Policy and may result in the revocation of an individual’s OCP and OCM credentials.

Oracle Certification Program Fraudulent Activity Policy: Oracle reserves the right to take action against any candidate involved in fraudulent activities, including, but not limited to, fraudulent use of vouchers, promotional codes, reselling exam discounts and vouchers, cheating on an exam, alteration of score reports, alteration of completion certificates, violation of exam retake policies or other activities deemed fraudulent by Oracle.

Oracle considers any contributions to, use of, or sharing of materials pertaining to Oracle certification exams (or “brain dumps”) to be a violation of this Fraudulent Activity Policy. Candidates can check if the materials they are purchasing are prohibited brain dumps by visiting CertGuard’s Brain Dump ID System at  http://www.certguard.com/search.asp. It is the responsibility of the candidate to ensure that all materials they purchase or use to prepare for exams are not violations of this Fraudulent Activity Policy.

If Oracle determines, in its sole discretion, that fraudulent activity has taken place, it reserves the right to take action up to and including, but not limited to, decertification of a candidate’s credentials, temporary, indefinite or permanent ban of a candidate from Oracle certification programs, notification to a candidate’s employer, and notification to law enforcement agencies. Candidates found committing fraudulent activities forfeit all fees previously paid to Oracle, or to Oracle’s authorized vendors, and may be required to pay additional fees for services rendered.
