    Is there a certification for Data Modelling

    993152
      Is there any certification tracks for Data Modelling concepts. What about a database design and modeling track from an Oracle Corp perspective? Are there any exams that include classic topics such as normalization / denormalization, key choice, relational model vs. implementation, diagramming methods, etc? There are so many perspectives on relational database design and modeling. One size does not fit all, but it would be interesting to see a standardized, official Oracle take in this area--if that makes any sense. Perhaps it doesn't.

      If there isn't a database design / database modeling track, could anyone recommend a book that might be closest to Oracle's in-house take on database design and modeling best practices? It's one thing to know the mechanics of how to use a product; quite another knowing fundamental design principles that maximize the use of that product.

          I don't know of anything Oracle offers that comes even close to this. The only certification that I know of offhand that deals with those concepts is from CIW:

          http://www.ciwcertified.com/Certifications/Web_Development_Series/database_design.php

          Domain 1: Relational Database Fundamentals
          Domain 2: Relational Database Design and Application
          Domain 3: Normalization and Database Design
          Domain 4: Structured Query Language (SQL)
          Domain 5: Relational Algebra and Databases
          Domain 6: Transactions, Currency Control and Database Security

            We do not have a specific Data Modeling certification at this time.

                Hi Brandye,

                Thanks for your reply.
                Can you please let me know if Oracle has any certification program for Business Intelligence/Data wareHouse Development?
                It should not be tool specific but just concepts of DW-BI.
                Kindly help me with this regards.

                  There is a Data Warehouse Specialist certification and several BI certifications. Go to the URL below. Search the page for 'Warehouse' or 'Intelligence' to find the certifications. Pull up the links and look at the topics to see if any have the specific topics you are interested in.
