How To Become Oracle Certified

DBA

Oracle DBA course time duration

It was a 3 months course but it took around 7 months to complete because of


the course content. Also, I wasn’t in a hurry since I wanted to understand the
entire concept in depth in order to achieve good percentage in my exams.

Therefore, I opted for a classroom program which involved 4 hours of classes 5


days a week. Moreover for study material, I got Oracle e-books and course
presentations.
