Oracle Database 12c: Administration Workshop


5 days

Overview and Course Objectives

The overall objective of this course is threefold. First, this course instructs one in many of the day-to-day administration tasks required of an Oracle database administrator. Second, it is one of the courses modules that assist in preparation for certification as an Oracle Certified Associated (OCA) database administrator. Finally, it introduces one to many of the administration sub-specialties that one might next pursue. It is increasingly rare for a single database administrator to fulfill all the required responsibilities necessary for management of an enterprise-scale Oracle database installation. Therefore, one may eventually specialize into backup and recovery strategies, database performance tuning, security administration and the like.

Whenever appropriate this course demonstrates how an Oracle database installation integrates with its host environment, most commonly a Linux, Unix or MS Windows operating system platform. Extensive examples, workshop exercises and solutions are provided using the SQL command-line, the Enterprise Manager Database Express and the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control interfaces.


Participants should have knowledge of relational concepts and knowledge of SQL is mandatory. Oracle Database 12c: SQL I - Introduction and Oracle Database 12c: SQL II - Intermediate are recommended prerequisites for this course.
