The databases course CS586 class at PSU is exactly the same course that was
taught at OGI, FYI.  Same instructors, same textbook, same syllabus.  IF
you're looking for just a basic primer online, there is one at
w3schools.org, which covers about the same material as the first week and a
half of the PSU class.

They used to have a Databases class at OGI. We have two PSU Intro to  
Databases teachers on this list - but that's not necessarily what  
you're after. I don't have direct experience with any database courses.

Command Prompt, Inc. is fairly local, supports PostgreSQL, and they  
offer on-site training in the Portland area. Does anyone else know of  
a local training company?

I learned most of what I know by debugging someone else's PL/PgSQL,  
so I feel your pain, Michael!
