OT: Database Certificate == 'Good Career Move'?by jerrygarciuh (Curate)
|on Nov 26, 2002 at 23:04 UTC||Need Help??|
I am contemplating dropping about $5400 over 2 years on a Advanced Postbaccalaureate Certificate for Database Systems Professionals at Tulane. The coursework is listed below. I am doing well enough as a self-taught independent contractor but Zeke will be off to school in 2+ years and I may want to be more employable as a pro. I wish to keep learning as well. And I want to create not administrate. And I want to be a part of the open source community and shun the Evil Empire.
I have an M. Ed. with a 4.0 from UNO and 2 BAs from William and Mary but all my tech-fu has been self taught on an as-needed basis.
I would very much like advice on how best to pursue programming and database design primarily for web use for both wisdom and profit.
8 courses: Problem Solving with PL/SQL, Problem Solving with Developer/Forms, Files and Data Structures, Database Management, Database Administration, Client/Server Database Application Development; and any two of the following : Advanced Database Administration, Information Engineering, Data Warehousing. _____________________________________________________
