Computer and Database Certifications and Training

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projected employment for computer scientists and database administrators to grow at an astonishing rate of 37 percent in the decade stretching from 2006 to 2016. Looking at those numbers, it's no surprise that thousands of computer and database training programs have sprung up to teach a new generation of tech workers.

Computer and database classes may take place at major universities, community colleges, and online. Database training of any type can prove very valuable in today's technology-intensive work environment. An associate's degree related to database administration is usually enough to get a start in the field. If you want to better your chances of moving up in the field quickly, go for a master's degree in a computer-related field.

Other training programs focus on qualifying students as experts in specific database software programs. Becoming a Microsoft Certified Database Administrator, for example, can be a strong career move if you want to work with computers in a corporate environment.

Successful computer scientists and database administrators commit to taking classes and re-upping certifications throughout their careers in order to stay current in this constantly evolving field.

Working with Computers and Databases: Career Information

Telecommunications companies, private corporations, and various government agencies are among the major employers of database specialists. However, database experts may find work anywhere there's a database--and in today's world, that means database experts can find work most everywhere they look.

The number and importance of databases renders database specialists habitually well-paid and readily employable. According to the BLS, median annual earnings of computer and information scientists measured $100,900 in May 2008, and database administrators made $69,740 in the same year. Staffing company Robert Half International had database managers gaining annual pay of $84,750 to $116,000 in their 2007 Robert Half International Salary Guide.

Database administrators with a combination of the proper certifications and education will stand out from the pack in any job market, even a highly competitive one. The BLS projected that available positions for database administrators will grow from 119,000 in 2006 to 154,000 in 2016.
