I live in Dallas. The major Junior College here offers Oracle courses.

You might look in your town. Houston, I am guessing at the local state college or Junior college.

Those very expensive courses are usually only a week or so. And your retention from them is usually not great. I would take a course a local college. Also, you can buy versions of Oracle that run on NT or Windows, or Unix even.

Load them and get a few good books on oracle. here is a very good site for getting oracle books. It is very reputable site. I have used it for several years.


Also, there is www.bookpool.com. AND http://www.overstock.com/cgi-bin/d2.cgi?PAGE=HOME

You can even go to www.Oracle.com to get books and some downloads as well.
