SQL (Structured Query Language) is the world’s most widely used database language, utilised by a large variety of database systems for creating queries and manipulating data. Advanced SQL Developers are currently greatly in demand by the IT industry, and a high level of understanding of advanced SQL techniques can put individuals at an advantage when planning to enter into this field of work, or when wishing to enhance their position within their current SQL-based working environment.
This Advanced SQL training course, which has a duration of two days, builds upon the prior knowledge and understanding of SQL, as taught in the Introduction to SQL course. Thus, this Advanced SQL course focusses on sharing new, complex SQL techniques, allowing the delegates to understand the core innovative SQL concepts currently present in the database world. This course creates capable SQL users, confident in executing more complicated commands when viewing and managing tables and running complex queries.
SQL techniques taught during the course include creating and managing tables, Data Manipulation Language (DML), enabling the production of Databases and Apps, and scaling emerging and dynamic technological networks. On completion of the training course, delegates will have a thorough understanding of these techniques, and will have obtained the skills necessary to effectively manage a relational database.
This course is for individuals who are familiar with SQL and would like to improve their skills and expand on their knowledge.
It is required that delegates have prior understanding of SQL, and so it is neccessary for delegates to have attended the Introduction to SQL training course before enrolling on this Advanced SQL course.
No exam is required in order to pass this course.
