Oracle Warehouse Builder-DesignBuild training course (code: ORC0140)


Client feedback shows that delegates on our courses will best engage when they can relate course topics to their own day-to-day practices and requirements. Where possible, we  run this course as a consultative, workshop-style event, in which discussion of relevant topics takes place in relation to the delegates' own applications and scenarios.

To facilitate this type of event, a subject matter expert leads the training, hands-on labs and discussions to ensure course topics are covered in a meaningful, relevant and timely manner. Delegates may be able to bring their own practical requirements and work to the course if the subjects and course topics are suitable.


Those responsible for installing Oracle Warehouse Builder eg: Business Intelligence application developers, Data warehouse administrators, System administrators, Data warehouse and ETL developers, Other MIS professionals.
