Global training program helps close skills gap and creates new career opportunities with Oracle’s fast-growing cloud
Oracle has announced to provide free Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) training and OCI certification testing to all customers across the world.
Oracle’s full OCI learning curriculum for all skill levels and diverse IT positions is included in the new program, which was built by Oracle’s experts. Learners can access all OCI courses, which are provided online and on-demand in 13 languages, through this programme. For a limited time, Oracle is also providing free Oracle Autonomous Database and other certification examinations.
According to Oracle, OCI customer adoption continues to grow, so the company has increased investment in programs that provide support to customers and increase access to relevant, hands-on cloud skills training to help them get the most out of the Oracle Cloud.
People may learn significant cloud skills that can be used to any business through Oracle’s new training programme, allowing them to increase their value and grow their careers. Free training and certification also contributes to the expansion of the IT talent pool, making it easier for organisations to hire or develop the competent workers they require to grow and innovate swiftly.
“Throughout the pandemic, we’ve seen the IT skills gap become wider and more prominent than ever before due to our heightened reliance on high-tech and cloud skills. This gap not only impacts the people looking for meaningful careers but also companies seeking qualified professionals,” said Damien Carey, senior vice president, Oracle University. “By providing free training on arguably the fastest growing cloud technology in the industry, Oracle is helping individuals build the skills they need for successful careers and making it easier than ever for our customers to maximize the value of their Oracle Cloud investment.”
Oracle’s new program will include:
- Access to the entire digital OCI training catalogue which includes courses for all levels and multiple roles, accessible anytime and anywhere with 13 languages supported
- Hands-on labs through the Oracle Cloud free tier to enable practice in a live environment
- An end-to-end Oracle certification experience — from preparation courses and practice exams to testing and credentialing
- Live sessions taught by Oracle experts who cover best practices and provide personalized feedback
