    To become familiar with the curriculum most suitable for your position, please see the diagrams below. Locate your job role – the column below contains the recommended curriculum and course sequence (top to bottom). In the far left-hand column, the length of the course is displayed. If a title is also available in a self-paced format, that is also indicated.

    We understand that your responsibilities may include more than one of the roles listed. For example, if you have DBA responsibilities, but also do physical database design work, ensure your plan includes the core courses from both roles.

    If a class is designated as a prerequisite, it should be taken prior to classes further down in the curriculum sequence. For example, Teradata SQL is a prerequisite to Teradata Physical Database Design.
