Employers look for ways to select prospective employees who have the solid foundation of skills needed for effective performance. 

The Oracle Certification Program helps the IT industry establish a standard of competence in key entry-level and professional job roles.

An Oracle Certification is a valuable, industry-recognized credential that signifies a proven level of knowledge and ability. Each higher level of Oracle certification brings a higher standard of benchmarked skill and ability, which leads to greater opportunities and higher pay.

"Technical certifications have evolved from a hiring tool to a screening tool: If you don’t have them, you aren’t viewed as a serious candidate."
