Distribution Certification Exam Training Syllabus

Exam Topics
The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Distribution 9 Essentials exam consists of six topics:
1. Common Foundation & Address Book
2. Distribution System Set Up
3. Inventory Management
4. Sales Order Management
5. Procurement & Subcontract Management
6. Transportation Management

Exam Objectives

The exam objectives are defined by learner or practitioner level of knowledge:

• Learner-level: questions require the candidate to recall information to determine the correct answer.

Example: Define the term network.

• Practitioner-level: questions require the candidate to derive the correct answer from the application of
their knowledge, which can only be attained by extensive experience with the product.

Example: The client requests xyz functionality, would you recommend a, b or c?

When viewing the syllabus keep in mind the level of knowledge required for the exam. If you are
working on a learner level topic you won’t need to dive as deep into the topic. Rather than have solid
understanding of the main concepts.

Training Path Information

The Training Syllabus contains the topic areas identified in the Distribution Exam and the related courses
or links for study.

Every section contains the following supplemental materials:

 Implementation Guide
 Information Index - a link to My Oracle Support containing all the white papers available under
each subject area.
 UPK- (when available. No Transportation UPK is available)
 Quiz - To test your knowledge

The training path will NOT show complete as you go through it. This is purposeful so that you can
continue to come back to the training path and review again and again.
