Orange Coast Database Associates is located in Laguna Niguel, southern California, right next to Laguna Beach in Orange County. We are a Software Training & Programming Consultancy serving Southern California, primarily Orange County, although we do travel outside the area. Our specialty is Microsoft Access, SQL and Database technologies but we cover all of  Microsoft Office and various other products as well.

Types of Training

We provide three types of computer training: 1) corporate group classes, 2) individual private classes and tutoring, and 3) public open enrollment classes. Many courses are available in all three modalities.

Group Classes

Group computer classes are designed for small groups of 2 to 8 students from the same company or organization. Classes are normally taught on-site using client facilities. Or you may reserve our training room in San Juan Capistrano.

Individual Training

Individual students can attend a scheduled class or enroll in private one-on-one computer training at their location or ours in San Juan Capistrano. Our scheduled classes feature limited enrollment to maximize personal attention and customized delivery. Private training can be billed hourly to include just the material you need.

Training Room (map and directions).

Our own private training room is in nearby San Juan Capistrano, just inland from Dana Point Harbor and only a mile or two from the I-5. It has 4 desktop computers and a conference table for those who prefer to bring their own laptop.

Course Formats

Group computer classes and private training can be tailored to your needs. We work with you prior to the class to understand your requirements. Then we tailor the class to fit. Students will be learning with concepts that are familiar and readily applied in the workplace.

Scheduled classes normally follow a standard format based on the provided courseware.

Most courses include extensive, hands-on practice.


Group computer classes and private computer training are scheduled at a time most convenient for your needs (whether this is your facility or ours). See the calendar for scheduled classes.



For classes taught at our studio we provide each student with a dedicated computer. Students are also welcome to use their own laptop if they prefer.

Classroom Hours

Typically from 9:00AM to 4:00PM with a one hour lunch break for day classes and 6:00PM to 9:00PM for evening classes. Private class hours are flexible. Most classes are scheduled from Monday through Friday with occasional Saturday classes.

Classroom Materials

Each student receives a course packet with required lab books and a training certificate. Students do not need to bring their own materials.

Most of our courseware is supplied by nationally recognized courseware providers such as Logical Operations. But for some classes, particularly Access and SQL we have developed our own proprietary material.

Certification Prep

Although we do not stress certification preparation in our classes the standard materials made available in most of our classes are a good basis for study and review.

Programming and Consulting

In addition to computer training we provide programming & consulting services to help you get off to a quick start or augment your project staffing. Our programming services may include offshore resources as required.

Training in other States

Most group computer classes are taught in Southern California (primarily Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange, San Diego, Ventura and Imperial Counties). Sometimes, though, our unique material or your scheduling requirements may warrant travel beyond Southern California and this we are happy to do at cost. If you have a larger class we can still be a very economical choice.
