  1. Excellent Oracle DBA Training Course


    The training course has been very good explained and described by Srini. He managed to make every technical training lesson easy to understand thanks to his explanation, examples on real world and applying the useful scenario and key areas along with practical work lab, which is the best way to consolidate knowledge learned from each training session. I´m very happy and satisfied to have followed all the classes along a best talented teacher like Srini, and can ensure I will continue to study in DBAUniversity.

  2. Good online Oracle DBA training


    Overall this was a good course. I was a bit frustrated that the videos did not following the eBook sequentially and instead jumped all over, thereby making it harder to skip over sections that I already knew really well. By the same token, I don’t think that the eBook was laid out in a very logical manner either, so even if the videos had followed the eBook, there would still have been some logical flow issues for me. I also think that a brand new DBA would benefit from this course having a more detailed section on Oracle architecture/internals — the stuff about the various Oracle processes and how memory is laid out and used, SGA vs PGA, buffer cache, etc… This course does provide a solid foundation on various basic DBA topics and is well worth the money — especially since the timeframe allows one to spread the course out over many months, rather than typical online classes that are for a single set week. That option was one of the things that really sold me on this class, as it worked much better within my job constraints.. I will be taking the ASM, RAC, DG course.

  3. Excellent Oracle DBA Course


    I highly recommend this course. I have recently finished Oracle DBA training course from DBA University. Srini is a very well experienced teacher with hands on industry experience. He explained the DBA concepts very well with real time concepts & LAB examples.This course is also updated with latest Oracle 19c videos, upgrade from 12c to 19c etc..

  4. 5

    I liked the way Srini explains main concepts by simplifying them and giving analogous examples. I also was impressed by lab works provided by DBAUNIVERSITY. Can’t wait to take RAC course.

  5. Oracle DBA Course


    I thoroughly enjoyed this class and have gained much knowledge.The instructor is certainly the best I ever had. He used clear and interesting examples to teach his material. Also he possesses the highest level of knowledge on the course . I really enjoyed the online course, I liked that everything was straight forward.I appreciate the effort put into the course and the notes. Thank you

  6. Excellent Oracle DBA Course


    Srini is a very talented teacher. The course topics are presented very well and broken down into easily understood concepts. The course has many online labs that reinforce the lectures presented by Srini. Srini says in the training, ‘Oracle is an ocean’. This training will arm you with a solid foundation and the confidence to successfully navigate that ocean. This is an excellent Oracle DBA course.

  7. Excellent On Demand Course


    I recently completed the Oracle DBA On-Demand Training Course with Srini. I have taken a few online training courses in the past, but the Oracle DBA Course has been by far the best experience. Srini explains all the concepts clearly, and provides step by step solutions to complex problems that DBA’s face in the real world. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to build solid Oracle fundamentals.

  8. Great Job Srini !


    I took the Oracle DBA course in the DBA university and impressed with that, I took the Oracle ASM, DG and RAC course as well. Srini did an amazing job both the trainings. He explains all the concepts clearly and the training exercises are also very good. I bought the ondemand courses and he offered excellent support whenever I contacted him. I highly recommend these courses for anyone who is seeking a well rounded Oracle DBA training.

  9. Best Oracle DBA course !!!

  10. My First Online and DBA Class - Excellent!


    I recently completed the Oracle DBA class with Srini. This is my first online class and found it very impressive: the structure and sequence of the class, the logical examples and explanations, the book, the exercises, the classroom setup and lab setup. The class was recommended by a previous student and I am very happy with my experience with this class. It definitely provided a great foundation for my career goal as a DBA. I will also refer this class to my other colleagues and friends.
