The query performance tuning class has been a popular class but we've only been running it in local cities. We're now running it in a fully-interactive instructor-led online class, complete with hosted hands-on labs. Later this year it will also be available amongst our upcoming on-demand training offerings.
If you're keen to spend some time in a query performance tuning class, let us know.
For the online offering, we've spread it over 4 x 1/2 days to make it easier to attend. We've got the same hands-on-labs and course content as the in-person class. The labs are hosted so you don't need to provide equipment but we have a lower cost attendance option if you don't need the hosted labs.
The initial course is offered to suit Asia-Pacific timezone but we intend to alternate it with an offering to suit US timezone.
