Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Foundations Associate
I got some training with Oracle 8i, forms, reports and programming, wich course can I take to re start.
HI Walter, I would probably recommend some APEX training courses or Visual Builder (VBCS), these are 2 OCI services that like forms/reports allow you to build quickly data driven applications, but just much more modern then forms 🙂
Hi, My name is Go. I’m developing the oracle skill.
I’ve noticed your blog at first. Now on then, I want to get the oracle information by your blog.
By the way, do you know oci test is examinated many times if the test is fail?
Can you take OCI Developer Associate before taking OCI Foundations Associate
I do not think there is any check on the order, but check with the exam center.
Any sample questions to practice before attempting the OCI Foundation certification.
you’ll find some sample questions for each exam on youtube if you search for the exact name of the certification
Hello, I registered to take the online exam for OCI Foundations Associate. There was no promotion code and there was no other option to specify credit card details. I stopped the registration. Is the exam free and how is the reimbursement done?
You can find the steps here:

Yeh I did the same, pretty disappointing. I spent many hours today studying and now find out there is “in fact” no FREE EXAM. Maybe Oracle should update the advertised offer (to save others being disappointed)
I think they are aware that all exam slots are booked and trying to find a solution.
Thanks for wording my opinion in exact terms 🙂
Such a shame that the marketing word Free has been utilized. The PROMO-CODE is not VALID and The Testing Dates open after 2 months from now. By then I will be on another learning path.
Well the training is available for free for sure, but yes, Oracle got a bit surprised on the amount of people that enrolled in for the certification. They are extending capacity, but for sure there is a waiting queue 🙁
The correct marketing term would have been “free while supplies last”.
i followed your entire you tube video steps and choose to write 2 exams and the CART page shows amount due a s 20038 and NOT estimated due cost – 0:00, i chose for AUG 7th and 14th, still its saying that i have to PAY for this and not free. I choose both exams with -F (free) code !
Something is wrong ! Please help
There’s no official statement that they extended the date to Aug 15.
I believe you have to register before end of day today (may 15th) but can schedule till audust 19th. But I am also hearing from many people that the free code is not working. I am checking to see if I can get some answers.
UPDATE: Exams can only booked until May15th, but scheduled until August.
I am trying to update this post, but for some reason my hosting provider put my environment to read only.
I tried it today, but it is asking for payment. Could you please check ?
yes, I am having same issue. Trying to figure out was is going on. will update hopefully soon.
They are asking voucher or Money. It should be free accrdiing to 15th august.
I faced the same issue with firefox, but used Chrome as below:
1. Load any of the URLs from Oracle, for eg. :
2. Then login to this site using credentials
3. Scroll down and click the Exam link, which opens the Pearson Vue page
4. Now enter the PEARSON VUE userid and password, and follow steps on screen
5. Now you can see that total due amount shows as ZERO
Once done sign out of both pages (Pearson, then Oracle), then start over to register for other exams 🙂
All the best!
You will need to navigate to Pearson website from within https://learn.oracle.com/ols/home/35644 to avail the discount.
I have tried to book the exam now, but it is asking for Money.
Is the certification exam free?
did you go to the final step? Only there the discount is shown. But maybe the free certification has stopped. Yesterday it was still working.
Yes, till final step I tried, and also followed the way which GTMX-2020 mentioned above in his comment.
Can you please share me the steps which you followed yesterday.
I use the links from this page:
When it links you thru, do you see discount code in the link?
It is giving me the message like:
You must be a subscriber to access this content.”
I tried multiple times on 14 & 15 May, 2020 to avail the free certification exam from Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Foundations Associate but was unable to avail as in the final page it was asking for money
Hi Mr. Richard,
I need your help because I still cannot access the discount code to reach the free exam registration for OCI Architect Associate until today. Please guide me through, please … I am receiving this error as shown below:
You must be a subscriber to access this content.”
I see the same error message. Is that access to free certification expired?
yes signup for free exam has expired
I have already booked my exam date in months of july & august 2020
with free certification offer. I believe i will be authorized to appear for the exam, am i correct?
Yes, if you booked with the voucher code, you are all good to go in July and August. I hope you pass 🙂
is there no way to register for free certification now?
I booked 2 exam before May 15th for the date available in June. I got email from pearsonvue that “Unfortunately, we are unable to deliver your exam as scheduled. We apologize for the inconvenience” . I need to reschedule both exams. Now there are no availability in any center in my state in any months till end of 2021. I am not sure whether they will allow me to reschedule these exam as FREE. Please share if anyone has received such email and able to reschedule for free.
Any plans of Oracle offering the free certification again?
Not that I am aware of.
We are looking for free OCI certification vouchers.
This offer ends in 72 hours
I have freely completed Assiciate OCI exam from oracle on 22nd Feb 2022
