Also consider the Plug-ins and Products we’ve built and shared with the APEX community. We began testing Online training in 2002 and we’ve learned a lot of lessons. One is that employees and their managers often do no want to be out of the office for a full day. Our solution? We offer online training in 1/2 day sessions!

Oracle APEX Training FAQs
Even though “APEX” is short for Application Express, it is pronounced ay-peks.
A web-based application development platform for building web-based applications. It resides within the Oracle database and comes included with Oracle Database. Many people agree that APEX is the best development platform for building database-centric web-based applications. (See next question for more on this.) For a great, free video introduction to APEX, see https://www.youtube.com/embed/wkGKQrQPO60 SkillBuilders’ Oracle APEX Training on YouTube.
It’s an application that runs in a browser and presents and updates data that resides in a database. In the case of Oracle APEX the data resides in an Oracle Database - specifically, the database in which APEX is installed.
APEX applications can access data in remote Oracle databases and non-Oracle databases, but the main, typical and normal data store is within the Oracle database in which APEX is installed.
Oracle APEX is a fantastic web-dev tool because:
- Applications without data are not very useful. APEX provides easy access to the one of the most popular databases in the world, Oracle.
- The Oracle RAD stack is an inclusive technology stack based on three core components: Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS), Oracle APEX, and Oracle Database. This stack provides all the necessary components to develop and deploy world-class, powerful, beautiful, and scalable apps. There are no other moving parts of additional components required.
SkillBuilders will provide access to an APEX Workspace and logon credentials when you attend class. If you want to get started now, sign up for an “Always-Free Workspace” from Oracle Corp. https://apex.oracle.com/en/learn/getting-started/.
No. While it is helpful to have some development experience, sometimes business users with no programming experience have learned APEX to convert spreadsheets into APEX applications. Skillbuilders is here to guide you to becoming an expert Oracle APEX Developer.
You’ll be able to begin creating simple applications within a week but, realistically, to become proficient in developing secure web applications, 6 months of learning and developing.
Best way for us to determine this is have you meet with our instructor to better understand your skills and goals for the class. This will help us help you make the best decision. Skillbuilders can do this and can help guide down the best training path to reach your goals based on what you want to build.
It is strongly recommended that you have Oracle SQL and PL/SQL skills before taking a APEX training class. Having a fundamental knowledge of SQL will help you construct a better database which forms the foundation for all APEX applications. PL/SQL is required if you want to take advantage of all the built in functionality of the database for server side processing. With a grasp of these two languages you will get the most out of each APEX class.
APEX Training Reviews
Companies we Have Partnered With
SkillBuilders developed a custom single sign-on solution allowing seamless navigation and integration between the customer’s Oracle E-Business applications and custom APEX applications.
BAE Systems | Manchester, New Hampshire
As the lead Oracle Application Express (APEX) resource, Dan leveraged his knowledge of APEX, Oracle, and related web based technologies to help design and build a custom user interface on BAE’s existing Oracle EBS back end. Dan was an integral part of a team effort that took the project from behind to ahead of schedule while total staff was decreased. The project was completed on time and above expectations – a finished product which included additional deliverables.
North Carolina Community College NCCC
SkillBuilders was brought in to salvage and complete the project. SkillBuilders successfully completed the project on time and under budget. The Apprentice Program application was migrated to SkillBuilders’ AWS hosting platform in the Spring of 2016. This included a migration from BI Publisher to FOP and Apex Office Print.
Paralyzed Veterans of America
SkillBuilders developed an Online Registration system for the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) with Oracle APEX. The application allows participants and coaches to enroll in the annual National Wheelchair Games via the web. Mobile tablet support was essential to satisfy the needs of the participants. A back office component of the application allows staff to process the applications.
“I thought the instructor was excellent. Mick Hosegood did a very good job. The course content and materials were also well done!”
“When Waters Corp software customers needed a tool to manage ASM disks, non-ASM disk, RMAN backups, imports/exports, monitor and send alerts, manage database users (e.g. password management), SkillBuilders developed an integrated Oracle APEX solution.”
“In addition to training BI developers Oracle database, SQL and APEX development, SkillBuilders provides on-going application design reviews, planning and development assistance.”
