Class Summary

This accelerated course will teach students the fundamental skills required to manage Oracle databases. Students will learn database administration skills by setting up, configuring, and managing their own Oracle9i server. By the end of the class, each student will have gone through the main tasks necessary to manage Oracle9i databases. New Oracle9i features such as the locally-managed tablespaces, partitioned tables, global and local indexes and index-organized tables, will be covered.

The class consists of a mixture of lecture and hands on lab exercises.
