Oracle database administrator certification track (OCA)

By obtaining an Oracle certificate, you demonstrate a thorough knowledge of the Oracle environment. Obtaining this certificate requires effort and a thorough preparation. A preparation that focuses on obtaining the certificate, but in which we want to teach the participants above all a practical understanding of the Oracle database system. Since certification should never be the only goal!

So, ABIS presents this track for Oracle, preparing for the Oracle Database 11g Administrator Certified Associate (OCA) certificate. This track will prepare for the 2 exams that you will need to take to get OCA certified:
Oracle Database 11g: SQL Fundamentals I
and Oracle Database 11g: Administration I

In this course, the participants will become familiar with:

All aspects will be examined in detail, putting them also into practice through different exercises and cases.


No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please contact ABIS.

Intended for

Starting DBAs who want to prepare for Oracle certification, but who also want to learn how to manage an Oracle database in practice.


Participants should be familiar with the basics of relational databases and SQL (see ABIS course SQL and relational databases fundamentals).

Main topics

This certification track handles both Oracle DBA topics and SQL.

The implementation is done on an Oracle Database installed on a Linux system using SQL*PLUS and SQL Developer.

Training method

For this track, ABIS is using a blended learning approach. Course participants will combine e-learning and self-study with classroom instructor-led training sessions.

All parts/modules of the certification track are well aligned, in form and content. The provided sequence of topics is well defined and described in detail. Instructors are available during classroom sessions, as well as for questions during self-study/e-learning. Assessment of the technical concepts acquired is achieved using different test methods.

Participants use their own PC - on which a virtual course environment is installed - for the entire blended learning track. This will allow them to use this course environment throughout any stage of this blended learning track.

For more information on the training approach used, please consult Blended learning.


10 days for classroom sessions with a typical elapsed time of 8 weeks.
