Courses are good for your knowledge but only thing works good is your 
experience in Production env. 90% on the time you will have no time to refer 
the manuals. Every mistake has a big cost. 

Have a better and good knowledge of the Application, that will be a Plus, 
that's the way you can communicate with the Application teamand highlight the 
issues in effective manner. 

Certification of your environment will be a Plus. Don't get envolved in the 
Politics,  DBA can have lot  fun from all the sides,  Application, Management, 
Network and operation team, tuff to get the trust of all , but once you have it 
in you, you will enjoy every moment,   I can say this after practicing as DBA  
over 23 years. (must be correct). 

Good Luck.

Subject: [askdba] Seeking Advice.

I want to move from DBA to Production Support Management. This I suppose would 
be big leap for me as I feel this is a major stepping stone into Senior 
Management Category.
Can some tell me what sort of courses/knowledge I should attain to reach that 
All comments are welcome
