Database 12c Training and Certification: Built with Your Input

When creating Oracle Database 12c training courses and certifications, we wanted to know which tasks are most important in a DBA's day-to-day work. Instead of assuming what those tasks might be, we decided to develop a job task analysis survey for DBAs.

The response rate from DBAs from around the world was overwhelming! The survey focused on the following key database areas:

• DBA Core Essentials

• Database Storage

• High Availability

• Scalability

• Networking

• Security

• Very Large Database Administration

• Distributed Databases

After conducting this survey, we took this specific feedback and used it to help mold the new Oracle Database 12c training and certification curriculum. The benefit to you? You now have access to Oracle Database 12c courses and certification exams that were created with your specific on-the-job tasks in mind.
