Learning to use Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software--a suite of several interrelated business applications, including an accounting package called Financial Management--starts with basic instruction on navigation and account setup and continues with training in managing specific accounts, creating budgets and tracking billing. In early 2005, JD Edwards became part of Oracle, which has prepared dedicated training for its software, in addition to implementing significant enhancements. Thus, Oracle University is the place to go to for professionally taught classes on JD Edwards accounting software and other Oracle products.

Step 1

Enroll in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, Financial Management Learning Path offered by Oracle University. The learning path is designed much like a college degree plan. Courses are listed in the order they should be taken, but each will need to be enrolled in and paid for separately. Topics include basic navigational instructions and setting up a chart of accounts, managing accounts receivable, accounts payable, credit, collections and compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Prices start at $375 for an online self-study class and can run as high as $3,000 for a four-day, instructor led class. Prices are subject to change; contact Oracle University for more information.

Step 2

Purchase a self-paced online course from Oracle University. Self-paced courses are paid for and used online and include the following topics: expense management, budgeting, contract billing and chart of accounts setup. Prices vary from $375 to $750.

Step 3

Contact Oracle University and arrange for a custom, instructor-led training seminar. This option works well for businesses with more than a few employees requiring JD Edwards software training. Oracle can tailor learning programs to a business's particular processes and procedures. Oracle University courses can be taught at local community colleges and continuing education departments at many universities.

Tips

  • Local universities and community colleges may offer JD Edwards software training courses that are open to the public. View their course schedules or call their administrative office for more information.

    Oracle University offers a search tool for finding the locations of their instructor-led courses (see Resources).
