Q: What are the Courses and Certifications offered by EnterpriseDB and what do they cost?

A: Please visit our Postgres Training Sessions page (www.enterprisedb.com/store/products/dba-training) to get the latest training course offerings, schedules, and training class agendas, as well as pricing details.

We offer many courses for PostgreSQL and Postgres Plus Advanced Server (PPAS), and certification paths for each ot these tracks (PostgreSQL and PPAS). 

Our Certification FAQs outline the courses that apply toward certification eligibility. You are of course free to take these courses in any order. Please note, however, that certification exams are offered only in sequence, as you must successfully complete the Associates level before proceeding to the Professional level of certification.. 

EnterpriseDB also offers a number of shorter courses by specific topic. Please visit our Postgres Training and Certification Services page (www.enterprisedb.com/products-services-training/training) for an overview of all our Postgres training.

Q: What are the pre-requisites for an online training session?

A: EDB offers online training two ways: 

  • Live Virtual Training (LVT)
  • On-Demand/self-paced courses

Our Live Virtual Training (LVT) use WebEx or Adobe Connect in order to enable the online interaction between the trainer and students. For audio (to hear and speak during class), we use Voice-Over-IP (VoIP) technology.

  • Administrator or Power User rights to be able to install the required software and plug-ins
  • USB/analog headset with an integrated microphone connected to your computer
  • To ensure good audio quality during the class, a wired Internet connection is recommended (instead of a wireless connection)
  • You should also ensure that the necessary software, drivers, speakers etc. are installed and that your audio card is working
  • High-speed Internet connection (LAN, DSL, cable)
  • JavaScript and cookies need to be enabled

Here are the minimum requirements to take an On-Demand course:
