Educators in Serbia work and learn online from home with Oracle Academy

Jane Richardson
Senior Director, EMEA

Serbian educators from numerous institutions within the country successfully attended and completed their Database Foundations training online with Oracle Academy on March 14 and 15, 2020. 

Experienced Oracle Academy instructor Dusa Vukovic is busy working from home, ensuring Serbian and Montenegrin teachers can successfully complete their training in Java and database from home so they’re prepared to teach courses in these subjects. 

The educators successfully attended the final part of their Database Foundations training, despite the short notice in a change of format from an in-class to virtual training event. 

Thanks to Dusa (pictured) for her extraordinary engagement and hard work to ensure that each of the 21 teachers who connected to the online session successfully finished all the projects and exams. The educators not only earned their certificates of completion, but also valuable continuing professional development hours. They now are fully equipped to teach Database Foundations content to their studentsalso online.
