This course will consider the latest and most advanced elements of a robust backup and recovery strategy for the Oracle database platform. It is intended to allow a database administrator to become certified as a backup and recovery specialist.
Many students taking this course have familiarity with system administration and administration of other non-Oracle databases, and this is helpful though not mandatory.
