Two types of Certification are available, Master Certification™ and Planner Certification™. Each type of Certification has two separate exams – Level 1 (knowledge) and Level 2 (practical skills). Level 1 must be attained before Level 2 can be attempted, but Level 2 is optional. Level 1 certification confirms that a candidate possesses a thorough knowledge of all features and function of Oracle Enterprise Asset Management (eAM) plus integration with Oracle Inventory, Accounting and Costing. Certification requires passing a rigorous online Knowledge Exam consisting of 100 multiple choice questions. The test is timed and candidates have 2 ½ hours to complete it. Each exam is uniquely constructed by randomly selecting a specific number of questions in each of 36 pools of questions on different topics. Certification requires a minimum score of 70% on the exam.

Application certifications are valuable to both companies and individuals. The process of preparing for, achieving and maintaining certifications helps professionals continually improve and refine their knowledge and skills. Companies that encourage and/or require employees to attain certifications will attract and retain the most knowledgeable and capable people. Although Oracle offers certifications for many of its applications, they do not offer one for Oracle Enterprise Asset Management (eAM). The only certifications available for Oracle eAM are developed and administered by EAM Masters LLC.
