Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

@MS Ashura, according to ur background, u may proceed for Database Management Courses for global certifications. There several global certifications like DBA from Oracle, MCTS from Microsoft on Sql Server 2008 / MCDBA or MySql certifications and so on. Amongst them, I prefer OCP, coz at present Oracle takes the lion share of the market. To earn the Oracle DBA you have to do OCP there r two parts: a) for Developer & b) DBA Administrator. For DBA it requires passing two examinations: Any one of the following SQL exams:
Introduction to Oracle SQL, Oracle Database 11g: SQL Fundamentals, or Oracle Database SQL Expert and Oracle Database 11g-Administration
Remember, These are only available thru Oracle University or a Prometric testing center.
But…. always consult with your nearest persons or if possible talk with expert who is nearby you.
Here providing some links.
For MySql Certification.

For MCTS/MCDBA Certification.

For General Concept, please visit here.

For Oracle Certification (for becoming an Oracle Database Administrator) and also look here.

Good Luck !

    Agreed, look for a qualification in either Microsoft SQL or Oracle. I've got experience in both but have more experience in Oracle. Oracle SQL Developer as mentioned above is a good way to start!
