Re: Amt of Training to be considered "up to date"Hi Patrice

I've never seen an official number of weeks for training in Canada.

I know that Oracle Canada is providing 4 weeks to their consultants. You can have more if you're in sales ...

For sure, going to training is fun but I do not count on that to be kept up to date, my career is too important to let my employer manage it.

Off course being on the oracle-l list for many years is a great way to learn. I do buy books on a regular basis.

  I understand from your response that your employee doesn't send you on any Oracle, UNIX or MS courses.

    I am not joking. I consider staying "up-to-date" a full time process, not

    just something you do a few weeks a year. Perusing this newsgroup IS one     part of staying up-to-date.
