Juan, luckily we do not have to agree on this matter.

The world is large and there is room for a number of different approaches. I do not see what there is to dis-agree with in the presentation that Dennis put forward. It is his view of the way that DBAs can develop and learn and possibly a means of defining the level of a DBA. I disagree with some of the points on page 11 but I accept that is his view and that is fair enough.

We are not al the same and some people have different learning speeds and abilities and well as willingness to learn. Nobody is sugegsting you need to become an OCM. It is not something I would even consider because you have to attend Oracle courses and as I fund myself that is not likely to happen. Just do what you need to do and is within your capabilities to become the best DBA you can.

Good luck
