Thanks for the encouragement. I believe I´m on the right path cause of the BIT degree. I also got a diploma in Business Administration. I just have to become more technical.
I know how to use bits of SQL server, and also willing to learn on the SQL language. Have done a bit of programming in the .net environment too, and took a 2 week course in oracle. It was only an introduction thogh.
Right now, I´m doing un unpaid internship which will hopefully enable me to get into a postgraduate in Oracle. I´d like to work a couple of years in order to get further experience and be able to raise some money tp pay for my qualification.
I got plenty of books to read about oracle. I believe I have to keep on learning oracle basic concepts, and do specific research on downgrading (Is the project I´m involve right now).

>> My degree subject was in Business Information Technology in the UK. That's a great start! I have an MBA in IT!
I learned a database in my masters program (IDMS) well enough to get a DBA job, but this was in 1983, years before Oracle came out!Find a rigourous masters that teaches Oracle . . . .
Please read my notes on how to become a DBA:http://www.dba-oracle.com/t_how_to_become_an_oracle_dba.htm
The training costs about $30,000-$40,000 USD at Oracle University.
Barring OU, if you already know RDBMS, you can learn Oracle from the Easy Oracle pack:http://www.rampant-books.com/menu_six_packs_bundles.htm
Most Oracle people get OJT from cheap shops, universities, hosiptals and charities . . .
