You might think that you have to travel far and wide to receive a good education, but you would be wrong. There are lots of wonderful educational opportunities right here in your state of Montana. The state is home to many great community colleges, traditional colleges, universities, online program, technical and trade schools, and training programs offering educational paths in database administration and other related areas. Remember that a specific education in database administration is not always necessary; career areas like computer information technology, computer science, information systems, and more are applicable to the field.

You may have heard that an education is not necessary to work in database administration. This is technically true. There are no real hard and fast rules saying that you must have this degree or this level of education in order to achieve this position. However, the vast majority of professionals working in the field today will have some level of higher, formal education or, at the very least, a certification or training program under their belts. Getting hired without formal training and/or education can often be next to impossible, so don't make the mistake of thinking school is not something that you need.

Of course, you do need to spend some time figuring out exactly what type of education it is that you will need to possess. Contrary to popular belief, database administrators do not all do the same things career wise. Different jobs will have different responsibilities and, as such, will have different job and educational requirements. This is why it is important to decide exactly what it is that you wish to do before you embark on a career and/or an educational path in the field. Doing so will help you to tailor that path to meet your specific career goals.

With that said, some popular choices for database administration and related education in the state include Carroll College, located in Helena; The University of Montana at Missoula; Rocky Mountain College in Billings; Montana State University Northern at Havre; Montana State University at Bozeman; Montana Tech of the University of Montana at Butte; Salish Kootenai College in Pablo; Dawson Community College in Glendive; Montana State University at Billings; Miles Community College in Miles City; Chief Dull Knife College in Lame Deer; Fort Belknap College in Harlem; The University of Montana Western at Dillon; Montana State University's Billings College of Technology; the University of Montana's Helena College of Technology; Montana Tech College of Technology located in Butte; the University of Great Falls; Blackfeet Community College located in Browning; Montana State University's Great Falls College of Technology; Flathead Valley Community College located in Kalispell; Little Big Horn College in Crow Agency; and Stone Child College in Box Elder.
