    I took 2 courses (oracle DBA training and SQL training ) at DBA university. Both courses were well presented and had a good number of labs. SRINI is a great instructor and has a lot of experience. He has great knowledge on database administration.He is very engaging and patient.He provided very good and clear explanations of very difficult concepts and made sure every student was on the same page.I learned a lot of valuable information from him and was able to pass my exams.I can only say job well done and money well spent. I am currently taking my 3rd course( Oracle RAC ,ASM and DATA GUARD ) and so far i am having a wonderful experience.

    I underwent training in this DBA university and the faculty is amazing…I didnt expect this much of information to be acquired out of this training. The faculty uses white board and instant lab sessions, so you will feel like typical classroom training and since the lab sessions are completed then and there, you dont need to work hard after the session gets over. You just need to be focused and follow instruction of the faculty to become a expert DBA either in core concepts or in RAC,ASM and DG. The training is truly amazing and enhanced my knowledge multi fold.

    DBA training was very good , dedicated and gave us the most important topics that we need as an oracle DBA .My advice to all is to be prepared for this course study day by day as you could and keep searching about more details to get the full benefit from this training .
    Thanks to Srini he was very helpful ,patient and friendly.

    Very few trainers spend time explaining every detail of a course. I have had the chance to do just one course (Oracle DBA) at DBA university, but will not hesitate one moment taking up another course. The trainer summarized his tremendous experience in the IT sector, and passed it on to the students, addressing every concept that matters with practical exercises! At the beginning it was not that easy, but thanks to the trainer for making it possible to enjoy an entirely new domain.
    Beside the skills, the platform is amazing. The sound quality is excellent!
    I could not differentiate from a traditional 4-wall classroom…GREAT JOB!

    I took the Oracle RAC ASM DG course and thoroughly enjoyed it. This was my second course with DBA University (the first being the Oracle DBA Training course), and both were well worth it.

    Srini is a pretty knowledgeable instructor. Not only did he explain things clearly but he related the course material to real-life situations as well.

    I wish such advanced topics as encryption, data masking, Virtual Private Databases, etc. had been covered. Maybe something for the future or possibly even a new course altogether!

    I strongly recommend these courses for anyone thinking about going into Oracle database administration, and I won’t hesitate to take future courses with DBA University.

    I have just finished taking the Oracle DBA course at DBA University and I’ve learned a ton. I found the course to be very well structured and was delivered in a way anyone can learn and develop a skill set that will make a difference. The training materials were user-friendly with a very informative text-book that is easy to read and understand. The labs were well organized with step-by step categories that are color coded for ease reference.

    My teacher was Srini Ramineni and he did an awesome job. I found him to be a very knowledgeable instructor who knows his subject matter. He was very clear and thorough in every topic and I have gained a lot of knowledge from watching and listening to his lectures. As a visual learner myself, I have benefitted greatly from his labs demonstrations and the diagrams that he draws to elaborate on the key points that should not be missed by any future DBA. Without doubt, he knows how to break down even the most seemingly complex topic and he teach it in a way anyone can understand. As a student who took the recorded version of the training, I never felt alone or forgotten. Whenever I needed help, my instructor was available without fail and in a timely fashion. He made my learning experience to be fun and indeed, I enjoyed every step of the way.

    To anyone who is looking to learn a skill set that will change your life for the better, DBA University is a great place to be. You can rest assured that you will be equipped with knowledge and ability that will lead to a very rewarding career.
