The exam retirement process is an important point in any certification program lifecycle. The old tests go away and new ones come to replace them, which is why some vendors notify their candidates about any changes happening in their programs. The same rule applies to the Oracle portfolio and the paths it has. The notification about retirement usually comes 90 days in advance, while some tests may require a 180-day notice.
