I have been asked to arrange a training session on "RDBMS Concepts with Oracle Database"
and prepare a course outline.

Can anyone provide me a course outline on this?

Hi,
I think the table of content of the Oracle® Database Concepts is a good start.

Regards,
Franck.

You have to begin with Dr. Codd rules and explain them.
After that:
1. Explain the table concepts in Oracle - this is the notion 'relation' in the theory, but also means that tables could be joined rowwise (related).
2. Explain the Dictionary of Oracle (metadata about the tables, indexes, sequences, etc.).
This is one of the rules of Dr. Codd - all data about the DB should be inside the DB
3. Explain the logical and physical tiers of the DB and the independence - logical structures are not dependent by the physical structure.
Example: A tablespace comprises tables and indexes (tablespace is logical unit). But a tablespace comprises OS files. You can add new files to the tablespace, move files to different disk drives. This physical changes do not reflect the logical unit. They belong to different layers of abstractions.

After that (depending on the time) explain:
- SELECT
- DML (Data manipulation language) - INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE
- DDL (CREATE TABLE, CREATE USER, ....)
-DCL ( Data Control Language)

Pay attention to the notion "Transaction".
Explain what is a transaction - set of DML statements that are atomic.
Explain COMMIT and ROLLBACK statements

who is your audience?

developers?
dbas?  
architects?
business analysts?

All of the above suggestions seem good but you should tailor the course for the audience.
