Oracle Database technology is used by the world's leading companies to manage critical business functions, systems and processes.

Learning and understanding the Oracle database can only be achieved by doing hands on practical Labs and illustrations. It is impractical to imagine that you can learn Oracle and to an extent any technical skill by listening only.

Installing the Oracle database is the first step towards ensuring you are able to practice on the many tutorials that are available for Oracle. I have created this free course for you so that you are able to have you database up and running in 45minutes or less.

The process of becoming Oracle Database certified broadens your knowledge and skills by exposing you to a wide array of important database features, functions and tasks. Oracle Database certification teaches you how to perform complex, hands-on activities through labs, study and practice.

Additionally, Oracle certification exams validate your capabilities using real-world, scenario-based questions that assess and challenge your ability to think and perform.

With the 12c release, Oracle Database is re-engineered for Cloud computing. Multitenant architecture brings enterprises unprecedented hardware and software efficiencies, performance and manageability benefits, and fast and efficient Cloud provisioning. Oracle Database 12c certifications emphasize the full set of skills that DBAs need in today's competitive marketplace.
