Database Technology and Administration
The Certificate Program in Database Technology and Administration is a course of study that seeks to ground the student in the fundamentals of Database Management Systems (DBMS) prior to certification as either an MCDBA or Oracle 9i DBA. All students must first complete both CSCU 0017 and CSCU 0018 before electing to specialize in either the Oracle 9i DBA or Microsoft MCDBA track.
CSCU 0017: Introduction to Database Management Systems
This course introduces students to techniques of data analysis involved in designing relational databases and how to apply them effectively. Students will learn how to design an efficient relational database by creating relational constructs, normalizing tables, creating joins and views, optimizing the database's physical design, and avoiding common database design mistakes.
CSCU 0018: Advanced Database Management Systems
Prerequisites: CSCU 0117. This course provides new users of relational databases with a solid introduction to SQL. Students are required to build a database and access stored information by performing queries. By the end of the course, students will have the requisite skills to retrieve, add, and delete data from an SQL-compliant database.
This is a hands-on program that helps the student prepare for both a new career in database administration and Oracle's certification as an Oracle 9i Certified Database Administrator. In the Oracle 9i training you will learn the skills needed to become a DBA and learn how to manage, administer, backup and tune an Oracle 9i database.
CSCU 0019: Introduction to Oracle 9i: SQL (Exam 1Z0-007)
