EnterpriseDB has created a new five-day, instructor-led Postgres Plus Advanced Server (PPAS) database administration training course. Attendees will learn all of the essential techniques on how to design, implement and manage Postgres Plus Advanced Server. The class is designed to prepare students for our Associate Certification Exam.

EDB’s certification programs are globally recognized as proof that a database professional has the knowledge, skills and ability to perform essential job functions with minimal on-the-job training or hand holding. Knowing how to administer enterprise-scale data solutions using the different tools available in Postgres Plus is a valuable skill set in high demand.

EDB certifications offer numerous benefits, including increased job opportunities and potential to earn higher salaries, greater visibility among managers and peers, and the opportunity to learn new skills in areas where you may have only limited experience. Certification could make the difference between landing the job and having your resume kept on file, “in case something becomes available in the future.”

EDB resellers are now required to take the PPAS training course and pass the Associate Certification Exam. The reasons for this requirement include the following benefits to reseller partners:

  • Resellers’ sales engineers will have adequate technical skills for pre-sales engineering and solutions architecture.
  • Resellers’ professional services teams will be able to deliver an optimal level of consulting expertise and perform database migrations from Oracle or another vendor to Postgres Plus.
  • End users can be assured that EDB partners have the necessary technical skills as defined by the vendor (EDB) to competently perform consulting and services.

The training course combines the convenience of online training with the benefits of interacting with a live instructor. Participants will be able to interact directly with the instructor in real time for Q&As or additional detail on a specific topic. Upon course completion, participants will have the essential skills required to install, configure, manage and maintain Postgres Plus Advanced Server, and they will be prepared to manage large database with high 9’s HA and high level of security. The course includes one free attempt at the PPAS Associate Certification.
