Get Unlimited Oracle Training for Your Team for an Entire Year

Written by Amit Kumar, Senior Director Oracle University Training 

Oracle University has been in the training business for a long time (over 30 years!) and has worked with many Oracle customers over the years. 

We understand that getting your teams trained on the latest Oracle technologies is not always easy. Training becomes more challenging when you have remote teams, team members with different skill levels or experienced team members who just need the content that covers the latest product features. It can also be challenging to predict your training needs for the year, making it all the more difficult to provide training in a timely manner.

Oracle Unlimited Learning Subscription is the Answer
