This course will provide you with the core knowledge and skills to create queries using Structured Querying Language (SQL). The course syntax is primarily that of ANSI / ISO SQL so the majority of the content is relevant to Microsoft, Oracle, MySQL and other database systems.
It will teach you how to select, filter and sort data from multiple tables and how to use views, functions and stored procedures. Additionally it introduces intermediate techniques to create efficient queries relevant to most businesses.
Each learner is provided with access to the full SQL Server product and utilises SQL Server Management Studio (SMSS) to progress through the exercises.
The course is designed to provide practical concepts and skills for querying SQL databases and as such this will help build skills for certification programs without covering the breadth of any particular certification.
