ORACLE CERTIFIED PROFESSIONALS AND DBAS DEMAND TOP DOLLAR.

Worldwide IT educator Global Knowledge, Inc., Cary, N.C., has launched a new, intensive, two-week Oracle8i "Bootcamp" and a traditional, full-scale Oracle8i curriculum for 2001. Global Knowledge has revamped its entire Oracle education track around Oracle8i, the latest version of the Oracle database management system that includes Internet enhancements, such as increased performance for XML and Java.

Today's rising demand and top salaries for Oracle Certified Professionals and Database Administrators (OCP-DBA) are strong incentives for technical professionals to acquire Oracle education and certification. According to a recent study conducted by Certification Magazine (published in the December 2000 issue), IT professionals holding an Oracle certification earned the highest salaries when compared to the earnings of professionals with certifications in other top programs.

"Oracle DBAs are earning top dollars in today's marketplace," explains Randy Ramos, Oracle8i course director for Global Knowledge. "The increased demand for IT professionals who can operate Oracle database systems has risen due to a surge in purchases of Oracle8i for e-business and Internet sites. The rising need for Oracle professionals exceeds the supply, which has bumped up salary levels considerably. Global Knowledge's new Oracle8i courses are timely vehicles for professionals to get the instruction they need to enter the Oracle job market."

Global Knowledge's Oracle8i Bootcamp -- a two-week accelerated program -- provides instruction for the same topics and skills addressed in the traditional Oracle8i courses, but the focus is on passing the certification exams. Testing actually occurs inside the classroom. A similar bootcamp program that Global Knowledge designed for Windows NT 4 certification achieved an impressive 100 percent pass rate in 2000. Global Knowledge offers a guarantee that learners with basic Oracle skills who enter the Oracle8i Bootcamp program will pass the exams leading to the designation of Oracle-Certified DBA.

Global Knowledge's traditional Oracle training track begins with "Mastering Oracle8i SQL and PL/SQL (procedural language/structural query language), a course that teaches all the essential concepts of relational databases and develops the skills required to interact with an Oracle8i database. The second course in the Oracle8i track is "Essentials of Oracle8i Database Administration," which leads learners through the installation, planning and deployment of an Oracle8i database and begins to prepare them for Oracle OCP test certifications. The final course in the series, "Advanced Oracle8i Database Administration," continues test preparation as it teaches advanced skills, such as database recovery in the event of failure, working with Oracle internal components in OLTP and data warehouse environments, and configuring Oracle client and server networking components.

Global Knowledge's Oracle8i curriculum includes practical, hands-on experience and lab exercises. Taught by Global Knowledge instructors with real-world Oracle expertise, the bootcamp and courses are designed to educate professionals such as data analysts, database administrators, and system administrators, and Oracle developers.
