Oracle Licensing Quick Start

Oracle Licensing - Quick Start

Looking for a quick refresher or quick introduction to Oracle Licensing? Then this course is right for you.

The course includes 45 min of video lectures broken into 2-3 min lessons on average. The aim is to allow you to understand the fundamentals in the shortest amount of time.

This course is ideal for anyone working in IT who wants to understand the fundamentals of Oracle Licensing for the technology products such as Oracle Database Enterprise Edition and Middleware. This Course will not get into the specifics of Contracts and Support renewals. We recommend the more extensive Foundation Course to cover other licensing topics and Oracle contracts.

At the end of this course you will gain the fundamental knowledge of Oracle Licensing rules and policies.

I am very much enjoying the course..about to pick up at virtualization today. This course has helped me immensely.


I really have enjoyed the training. I have found the entire series easy to learn and one of the best on-line training I’ve had. You go slowly enough for a novice to understand what you are teaching us and it is a well thought out pathway to knowledge. I have been able to build on the information you have already presented and I believe I am getting a good foundation from which to build.

I’ve run through all the content, I thought it was really clear and well put together.
