Oracle University and Oracle University Online Learning

Oracle University (OU) is committed to the delivery of high quality products and services and adheres to federal guidelines for accessibility under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act only applies to the U.S. However, Oracle reviews and considers all accessibility and special needs requests, including those from Canada and other non-U.S. regions. Oracle University complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (the ADA), the Rehabilitation Act, and other applicable state, local and regional laws in its education programs.

Oracle University online library curriculum is, at times, utilized as reference materials along with the classroom training. These online reference materials are converted for accessibility upon request. Conversions of online reference materials are limited to courseware that directly maps to the originating classroom event.
