Oracle Certified Specialist - Time To Get Specialized

About 2 years ago, Oracle Partner Network (OPN) launched the OPN Specialized program. Specialization achievement has a key component of competency development. Partners who earn specialization in at least one area (and up to four areas) are eligible for entry to the Gold level. Those partners who obtain five or more specializations qualify for the elite Platinum partner program level, which is the highest partner program level offered by Oracle.

Oracle Certification Program team has launched Oracle Certified Specialist credentials to certify Oracle Partners for their specialization level. OPN Certified Specialist credential identifies those Oracle Partners who have completed specified requirements for select Oracle Certified Associate (OCA), Oracle Certified Professional (OCP), Oracle Certified Expert (OCE), and Oracle Certified Specialist (OCS) certifications.
Oracle Partner employees who complete the certification requirements (for these select certifications) using their official OPN company ID will now also be awarded the OPN Certified Specialist designation for the technology as well as the original underlying OCA, OCP, OCE, or OCS credential, and their achievement is credited toward their company's OPN Specialized recognition.
Oracle Certified Specialist certification typically consists of just one exam. For example, passing 1Z0-518 Oracle EBS R12.1 Receivables Essentials qualifies one for Oracle E-Business Suite 12 Financial Management Certified Implementation Specialist: Oracle Receivables certification. For the corresponding Oracle Certified Expert certification one has to write two exams - Oracle E-Business Suite R12: E-Business Essentials and the Oracle E-Business Suite R12: General Ledger and Receivables Fundamentals mega exam. Even those who are not employees of Oracle Partners can register for the exams and qualify for Oracle Certified Specialist credentials. With a lesser number of exams to take to qualify for certification, this can be a great certification to aim if you have not enough time to prepare for more extensive exam content. It is time to get specialized!
