On March 31st, 2020, Oracle University announced that they were releasing the following certifications for free until May 15th, 2020:

Step 1. Choose Your Exam And Make An Account

After you’ve selected the certification you are interested in, you will make an account on Oracle University (For Free) and navigate to the Learning Path for that specific certification.

DO NOT REGISTER FOR THE EXAM DIRECTLY ON PEARSON VUE. YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE THE DISCOUNT AND WILL BE FORCED TO PAY!

Step 2. Register For The Exam

You will need to make a Pearson Vue account.

Once you have logged in, you will need to select how you want to take your exam. As you know, most testing centers are closed at this time due to COVID19 so you will need to select “At Home or Office”.
You can then run a pre-check on your computer you plan to use for the exam to make sure you have enough computer resources

Agree to the Pearson VUE terms and conditions, and then click Next.
