Pre-Production Database (PPRD)

The pre-production database is a copy of the production database at a point in time. The production database was last copied to pre-production in June 2018. If you wish to experiment, select this instance. Even if you make a gross error, the result will not be catastrophic to the operation of the College. Be aware that any work done in the pre-production database, even if successful, will not affect the production database.

Test Database (TEST)

The test database is a recent copy of the production database. It is very similar to the pre-production database with the following differences except that it is copied from the production database every Monday morning and it may be copied from the production database more than once a week without notice. Therefore, although the test database is much more current than the pre-production database, the test database lacks continuity of pre-production.
