The Database Administrator Program
Considering a career in database administration (DBA)? You’re not alone — more and more companies are turning to skilled database admins who ensure information is exactly where it needs to be and is accessible on demand. Working behind the scenes, DBAs are responsible for the management and maintenance of file storage and software systems, making them the critical link between information need and data delivery.
The Database Administrator Program at New Horizons is a certification program designed for students looking to learn the fundamentals of database querying, management, administration and beyond. Students will learn to administer, test and implement computer databases; as well as coordinating changes to computer databases while ensuring overall data integrity. Finally, students will plan, coordinate and implement security measures to safeguard computer databases.
Completion of this course yields two critical certifications:
First is the MTA Database Administration Fundamentals, which ensures an understanding of core database concepts, creation of database objects, manipulation of data, data storage and administration of a database.
Students also earn the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS): Access certification, which enhances their ability to manipulate and manage Microsoft relational databases.
