World’s 1st WCS 11g Implementation Specialist?

I became just that little bit more official yesterday when an eCertificate dropped into my inbox. As far as I know was the first person to take the Oracle Webcenter Sites 11g Certified Implementation Specialist exam (about four and a half months ago) and get certified.

Update: Following mine and David Thompson’s certification Manifesto is now officially an Oracle WebCenter Sites 11g specialist.

The version of the exam I took was actually a beta version which meant I answered way more questions than someone taking the standard exam would (in essence I was testing the test – I know, get me).

So what does this all mean? Well, it means I get to frame the following certificate and hang it on the wall above my desk like one of Saul Goodman’s law degrees:


It’s also good to know that Manifesto is not just a leading agency when it comes to Fatwire and WebCenter Sites implementations but also that we’re actively feeding back into Oracle’s definition of what an implementation specialist is and how they go about certifying them.

As soon as the exam launches officially the rest of the the Manifesto WebCenter Sites team will be getting involved…

    Hi Curtis,

    I took the exam on July 27th, just before the beta test ended here in the US – I received my certificate on Oct 3rd … I do know somebody at my prior company took the certification test before me. I do agree that not many have that certification at this time.

    I am certified as well. So, you are not alone in this world 🙂

      Is this still a beta exam ? Can you share how the questions were focused on ?
      Can you point me to some books (developer guide / admin guide) for preparing for the exam ?

    I am planning to do certification and require guidance to find useful resources to do self-study.

    As of today I am reading from Oracle Documents available online.

    Hi. I’m also currently studying for this exam. I feel I have the required experience working with WCS for passing this exam. Currently I’m re-reading the developer and architecture guides. Do you have any other references that I can use ? I’m also in charge of helping my fellow teammates passing this exam. All help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
