Oracle Datapump Utility Not Found

I have a fresh install of Oracle 12cR2 on Red Hat Linux.
I am trying to run the datapump utility but it errors with:
-bash: impdp: command not found

I tried running oraenv.sh script
I unset ORACLE_HOME, reset it and exported it.
The user is a member of the dba group in /etc/groups.

Is there a way to reinstall the utility?
Is there a way to check for proper installation?

Any assistance is much appreciated.

It's a binary file, should be in $ORACLE_HOME/bin. If your script fails to use a fully qualified path name, then that directory must (and should be) in the O/S PATH variable.

I confirmed it is in the $ORACLE_HOME/bin directory.  Things may not be configured properly as I am a SQL Server DBA covering for an Oracle DBA.  If it is helpful in troubleshooting, I can upload the user's bash_profile.

Is $ORACLE_HOME/bin in your PATH?

in the bash profile (after ORACLE_HOME is set):

To do things correctly:  When you created the instance it should have bee added to /etc/oratab.

Then in the profile you can do:
. oraenv

Change ORCL to the correct SID.
the oraenv script will set up everything you need for Oracle including updating your PATH.
