In this entry-level Oracle Database Associate training, Ben Finkel will prepare you to take the 1Z0-071 exam, which is the one required exam to earn the Oracle Database SQL Certified Associate certification.
Don’t let the OCA exam title code fool you. This Oracle training is actually a SQL course that anyone can use to learn the SQL flavor called Oracle SQL. While Oracle SQL isn’t entirely unlike other flavors, there are big differences in transaction control and even database organization that you should know.
If you already know SQL, this training will get you up to speed. If you’re learning SQL for the first time, that’s even better. Follow along in the Oracle virtual labs to learn Oracle’s flavor of the popular query language SQL.
For anyone who leads a technology team, this Database Associate training can be used for 1Z0-071 exam prep, on-boarding new data professionals, or as a training plan for anyone who needs to learn SQL.

Who Should Take 1Z0-071 Training?
This Database Associate training is considered associate-level Oracle training, which means it was designed for data analysts, database administrators, and anyone who needs to learn the Oracle SQL query language. This 1Z0-071 course is valuable for new IT professionals with at least a year of experience with Oracle database and experienced data professionals looking to validate their Oracle skills.
New or aspiring data professionals. This SQL training is perfect for anyone trying to learn the language. Ben starts with the basics of relational databases, like proper database structure and schema, works his way into inserting and updating data, and then gets into sorting with queries. Even though you’ll be working on an Oracle database in the six virtual labs, you’ll be able to use your new SQL skills across platforms.
Experienced data professionals. Data analysts or database administrators with a few years of experience should be pretty comfortable with the Oracle infrastructure aspects of this Oracle training. However, this is primarily a SQL course — and there’s plenty to learn when it comes to Oracle SQL. Ben covers the full range of DDL, DML, and TCL queries available with Oracle SQL and then gets into data aggregation, views, and maintaining Oracle database indexes. Experienced data professionals can use this SQL training to study for an Oracle exam, or simply as reference material developed by an Oracle expert.
