I'm in a company that uses SSIS, but I am an experienced oracle developer, and would like to transition.

I've researched Microsoft certification and found this:
http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-sql-server-business-intelligence.aspx

466 (Implementing Data Models and Reports with Microsoft SQL Server 2012) looks like the starting point because the audience is BI developer.

The company also has Informatica but SSIS is taking over.

The starting point though seems like MCSA, which is three courses,
http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-sql-server-MCSA.aspx

so my basic goal is to learn SSIS so I can find a slot in my company here but certifications are good in the long run.

I got certified in Sql Server a long time ago, so I'm familiar with some key differences in oracle and sql server, at least from a layman's perspective.

Can I download Sql Server (2012 ?) at home to get started ?

Just looking for some basic advice.
