Prepare for the OCM exam - ONLINE!

Hello everybody! I have a great news for you! After clearing my second OCM exam, I decided to provide an online course and help you to prepare and pass the exam from the first attempt.
In this course I will provide you with the step by step installation and configuration guides and pre-built Virtual Machines to help you test all exam scenarios practically. Moreover, I will go through the entire topics of the exam and will explain every subject in more detail and show practical scenarios and assign different tasks for you.
The overall course duration is 2 weeks (10 days) / 20 hours! We are going to have limited seats for every class, and the new class will start on August 26th!
If you want to pass the exam from the first attempt and become a member of elite group of Oracle Masters and boost up your career, I’m here for you! Being 2xOCM and author of “OCM 11g exam Study Guide” book, I’m ready to help you in person.
If you have any questions related with the exam and the course itself, please use the chat that appears in the bottom of the web page to contact me directly.
Good Luck
