    I recently took the Oracle DBA course taught by Srini Ramineni. I was impressed with the course and the way the material was presented. I have taken much more expensive training where the instructor simply puts the book material in a Powerpoint presentation and reads it line by line. This course is not like that. It is very interactive. All of the material is written on a white board and explained in a way that is easy to understand. This is a fantastic course and will provide you with a good, solid core set of DBA skills. I would definitely consider taking another course from DBA University.

    I have really enjoyed the Oracle DBA training sessions. I highly appreciate the level of patience and professionalism from Srini Ramineni. He is an excellent trainer with unique approach. I have never come across such intense, well-structured, and hand-on online training before. This is one of a kind. Thanks to DbaUniversity!!

    I have taken the Oracle Rac and Dataguard course with Michael Melchar. It was a great class. The lab was well designed that I can really get hand on experience for setting up the RAC environment. Without the help from Michael, I don’t think I can do it myself. I have been an DBA for 20 years but I tried to learn RAC. It was very difficult until I took this class. The price is extremely pleasant compare to Oracle. I also like the schedule that we meet 2 hours a day for 4 days a week. At such, you have a chance to digest the class material.

    I took the Oracle DBA course and was very impressed with the teaching method and course material. Srini is a top notch instructor. He is very detailed in explaining different scenarios, and answers questions very well. I have learnt a lot from Srini’s vast knowledge and real life working experience. I just had a job interview with a senior dba, and most of the questions asked were scenarios explained in class by Srini. I would absolutely recommend DBA University to anyone wishing to get into the oracle dba field.

    I recently took Oracle RAC and data guard class with Michelle Malcher, It was simply a great class. Michelle is highly knowledgeable, her course material and classes were very informative. We had sufficient time to complete the lab and learnt a lot and the course was pretty hands-on. I have tried creating RAC myself in the past but was never successful, but after taking the course it helped me and makes me feel very confident. We created the RAC and data guard environments on our personal laptop which is much better, even for future reference. I would highly recommend anybody looking for a career as DBA.

    I have taken the DBA I, Srini is an excellent teacher. What I like about him is that, he is passionate about this teaching thing. He makes sure that you understand the materials. The most notable part of this class was, Srini would bring a up a situation from real world and discuss it in the class then solve the problem. I felt very comfortable with his teaching technique, I am thinking of taking the PS/SQL course with him.
