Steps to learn Vertica


I am planning to learn Vertica. Since I am completely new to this area, need steps / direction to learn it. Some background about myself -
I have few years of experience in Oracle pl/sql scripting + application development knowledge in APEX. However, I don't have any knowledge in Big data.
Reason for my learning is to involve in a project in the area of Vertica, especially related to database and generating reports (or scripting).

Please let me know steps needed to learn the same. I assume -

  1. read vertica fundamentals (doc??)
  2. understand it's database concepts? Probably it is much different w.r.t. Oracle DB?
  3. sql scripting. Also need to know how it is different from Oracle pl/sql ?
  4. Setup a local copy of Vertican in my system (VM or something?)
  5. and so on....

Also please share any links which helps in doing this.
And, yes, my requirement is to get hold of this within a weeks time !
