Certificate of Proficiency (CP)
Offered through Business, Management and Technology
This certificate program equips you with the tools, knowledge, and practical experience needed to design, develop, program, implement and administer a database. The program objectives align with current industry standards. Graduates are qualified for the high demand positions of developer, analyst, administrator or programmer in the Oracle or Microsoft SQL server environment.
The recommended academic plan blends general education requirements with options for areas of concentration to ensure students get the most out of their certificate or degree.
Important qualities of a database developer
- Analytical skills. DBAs must monitor a database system’s performance to determine when action is needed. They must evaluate complex information that comes from a variety of sources.
- Communication skills. Most database administrators work on teams and need to communicate effectively with developers, managers, and other workers.
- Detail oriented. Working with databases requires an understanding of complex systems, in which a minor error can cause major problems. For example, mixing up customers’ credit card information can cause someone to be charged for a purchase he or she didn't make.
- Problem-solving skills. When database problems arise, administrators must troubleshoot and correct the problems.
This Certificate Program is associated with the Software Developer AAS Program.

As college costs continue to rise, St. Louis Community College continues to keep a high-quality college education within reach. It costs nearly 70 percent less per year to attend STLCC than other public universities in Missouri, and that figure is based on tuition alone. When you factor in additional four-year college expenses like room and board, the value of an education from STLCC becomes even clearer.
