Credit Transfer for Oracle Academy Certifications Introduction SQA have a range of Higher National Certificates available to colleges and students. The information given in this document applies irrespective of the context in which the Units are delivered. This document is of an advisory nature. The final decision on whether or not to grant credit transfer must be made by the centre and is subject to external moderation. However, external moderators are unlikely to raise objections to any credit transfer based on the advice given here. SQA provide clear criteria for deciding if two syllabuses are equivalent. All the following criteria must be satisfied if full credit transfer is to be recognised between both syllabuses: 1. The syllabuses have the same SCQF levels. 2. The syllabuses have the similar credit values (or equivalent). 3. The syllabuses are equivalent in terms of core skill coverage. 4. The syllabuses relate to the same subject area and the main topics are common to both. 5. The syllabuses present a similar level of cognitive demand. 6. The syllabuses encompass similar skill-sets. 7. The syllabuses are contemporary in terms of terminology, techniques and technology. 8. Employers, admission officers and other users would perceive both syllabuses as broadly equivalent. 9. The assessment demands are similar in terms of candidate activity and performance criteria, or candidates would be equally likely to pass both assessments. 10. Special conditions (where they exist) are applicable to both syllabuses. Since the units in this document match closely to the vendor courses, all of the above criteria can be met. The Vendor courses here have all the competences necessary to fulfil the appropriate employment objectives including knowledge, understanding and the necessary practical skills. Thus, credit transfer granted to a candidate on the basis of vendor passes and will cover all aspects of an HN Unit. The following guidance relates to specific vendor certification. Centres are free to consider any form of alternative evidence, and accept this as evidence of competence if they consider that it fully satisfies a unit’s requirements. However, centre decisions are subject to external moderation. Oracle Academy Credit Transfer Updated March 2014 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
