Not recommended as there will be no server access working to do practical after training. Also there will be no fix for the same. So it's wastage of money. If server access not at all working then no meaning to provide server access. Also it not working for single day properly. Need to followup daily but in response you told will fix that sir at home once he will back will fix. After he came back again it's not working and not able to fix for single day also Every time new excuse it's wastage of money.

I have undergone Oracle Tuning training. I can proudly say that this is one of the best training institutes available in the market. The way Mr. Kumar teaches the concepts and makes them understandable is very commendable and unique. Even a novice can clearly understand the concepts clearly after attending his classes.
