oracle certification – linking existing pearson/prometric accounts

May 16th, 2011 by Jeanne Boyarsky

Oracle has switched to PearsonVUE and is asking candidates past/present to migrate their history from Prometric.  I have an existing PearsonVUE account from my Spring Certification.  The steps were straightforward enough and *almost* matched the documentation.

  1. Go to the Oracle transition site
  2. Click my account
  3. Login to your existing PearsonVUE account resetting the password as needed.
  4. It asks to enter your Oracle information. (I got an error here.)  I choose the “more information” link to recover from the error.  Oracle is in pulldown now.
  5. Enter your Oracle testing id.  This is your Prometric id and was e-mailed to you on May 16th.
  6. Click save
  7. Click confirm

It now says

Your request to add Oracle Certification Program has been forwarded to our Testing Program team. If you provided a valid email address, we will notify you when your request has been processed. This typically occurs within one business day. You can also return to this site and check if Oracle Certification Program has been added to your list of Testing Programs.

Thank you for your interest in Oracle Certification Program.

I created the account but when I logged in… no previous data for my certifications. Just my Oracle/Prometric ID. Perhaps, it takes time to transfer over? Or are they not showing your previous certifications on the account?

Hi Jeanne,

your Oracle Testing ID is the same Prometric ID? I put my Prometric ID on the field called Oracle Testing Id but on my profile appears another ID.

I just confirmed my test results. My Oracle testing id and prometric id did match.

24 hours later, I gave the same status as Scott. Oracle id linked but no history.

I can not see my certification history either however I can choose Profile->Additonal Information and there I can find something related to my Prometric ID , it says “Oracle Certification Program — Oracle Testing ID: xxxxxxx”.

Call Oracle? I’m not affiliated with Oracle or Pearson so can’t help.
