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 with 30 to 40 hours of content. They include hours of videos, hands-on labs using the actual software, and knowledge checks and 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.

This Oracle Advanced Database Administration class has two parts. The first part of the class taken from Oracle's two-day Managing Multitenant Architecture class.
