Oracle On-Demand Learner Profiles
Oracle On-Demand (also known as the Oracle Student Learning Subscription) is a self-study training solution that was designed for two types of learners. First, Oracle On-Demand is a great fit for experienced IT professionals who don't need a traditional 5-day class to upgrade their existing skills. They can pick and choose topics to make the most effective use of their time. Second, Oracle On-Demand is perfect for highly-motivated individuals who are new to a technology, such as Workforce Development candidates, that need to space their learning over a period of weeks or months. These learners can take their time and repeat sections as needed until they master the new concepts.

About Oracle On-Demand
Our Oracle On-Demand classes are self-study courses that include hours of videos, hands-on labs using the actual software, and knowledge checks. These classes were created by Oracle to mirror the content found in the traditional live instructor-led version of this course. Those features are all part of the standard Oracle On-Demand training.

ONLC Extras
As an Oracle University Approved Education Partner, ONLC Training Centers bundles in valuable extras with our Oracle On-Demand Courses.
     Courseware After the Course. Get the eKit digital courseware that is used in the live, instructor-led version of this class. While the Oracle On-Demand access goes away after 6 months, you will have access to the "extra" digital courseware for an unlimited period of time.
     Certification Exam Voucher. Interested in obtaining certification? Upon successful completion of the lectures, exercises and quizzes, you will receive the associated exam voucher for each Oracle On-Demand class (where applicable). These exams have up to a $400 value.

This Oracle Database Installation and Administration class has two parts. The first part of the class taken from Oracle's two-day Installation and Upgrade Workshop. Then the second part of the class is Oracle's five-day Administration Workshop. Combined these seven days of class content prepare you for Oracle's exam 1ZO-O62, "Oracle Database 12c: Installation and Administration" and the related certification, Oracle Database 12c Administrator Certified Associate.
