While there are certainly many education providers that teach Oracle, your best bet is to start with Oracle themselves....

Visit the Oracle education Web site. Oracle now offers self-study CD-ROMs, live Web classes, and of course, instructor-led training. For the latter, Oracle does have a training facility in Manhattan.
For certification, you now have three options:
- OCA (Oracle Certified Associate) requires one test.
- OCP (Oracle Certified Professional) requires OCA, one instructor course, one test and one hands-on course.
- OCM (Oracle Certified Master) requires OCP certification, two advanced courses, an exam and a hands-on course.
Visit the certification Web site for a detailed explanation of these programs and how to get started.
As for cost, you can get more details from the Web sites mentioned. However, I will say that the instructor-led courses are relatively expensive so your cheapest path to certification would be self-study and OCA certification.
Hope this helps and good luck!
