Forget travelling to learn the intricacies of APEX or waiting for the course to come to your city
Singapore, Singapore (PRWEB) March 10, 2009
Getting in-depth, hands-on training in Oracle Application Express (APEX) has never been so easy. Leading database and Oracle APEX consulting firm DBCON Private Limited (http://www.dbcon.com) now announces the launch of in-class training in addition to its existing live online training in Oracle Application Express, the live, interactive course that has developers hitting the ground running with hands-on, part-time instruction.
"Forget travelling to learn the intricacies of APEX or waiting for the course to come to your city," stated Ashish Agarwal, Director of DBCON. "Now anyone with a basic understanding of SQL, PL/SQL, HTML and database objects can start developing in APEX quickly and easily - with just as much live interaction with instructors and other students as they would have in an in-person course, but on a convenient online schedule. Moreover, the course is about one-fourth to one-half the price of courses offered by other institutions."
DBCON's live online training is based on the firm's progressive training methodology, offers students an in-class environment with online convenience. Students can ask questions, participate in discussions and talk to instructors in real time and sketch ideas on a virtual whiteboard.
People in selected cities also have the option of attending the training in-class. DBCON is organizing in-class training in cities like Gurgaon (India), Singapore, New York (USA), San Francisco (USA), Sydney (Australia), Auckland (New Zealand) & London (UK). Location & schedule available here.
"Our instructors have real-world experience working in Oracle and APEX, backed by the Oracle certification," Agarwal explained, who himself is an Oracle Certified Master, Oracle Certified Professional in Oracle 10g, 9i, 8i & 8 and certified Project Management Professional. "Students get the benefit of speaking directly to Oracle professionals who can answer their questions in the context of working as a professional developer."
"Developing Applications with Oracle APEX" gives students a solid foundation in using the popular Rapid Web Application Development Tool. This is followed by "Advanced Oracle Application Express Training" that gives the required skills and knowledge to enhance the application, incorporate advanced features and make it a rich application. Classes include live demonstrations that allow participants to see exactly how the technology works, along with extensive hands-on lab exercises. Each student has a dedicated lab workspace available 24 hours on Internet.
In live online training format, total training time is about 15 hours each (for basic & advanced training), not including individual lab time; students can attend weekdays or weekends - and classes are batch scheduled to cater to various time zones. All sessions are recorded, allowing students to revisit concepts as needed.
In in-class training format the total duration of the training is 6 days (which includes basic & advanced training) with 8 hours per day.
"Although it is simple to start using APEX, the breadth of the product can be a little overwhelming," stated course participant Stuart Ellis of London. "This excellently structured and well-delivered course provides a solid grounding that should enable [students] to develop APEX applications with confidence. The online conferencing technology proved to be quick and unintrusive. I would not hesitate to take another course that is delivered in this way."
"I recommend this course to anyone who needs to quickly start using APEX," noted other participant Carol McCarthy from Portland, OR, USA. "The training materials were to the point and the instructor struck a perfect balance between theory and practice. It was a very supportive and productive introduction to APEX."
