The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:

  • Using standard aggregate functions and related SELECT statement clauses
  • Joining Tables
  • Using basic subqueries and the set operators

Who will the Course Benefit?

Anyone who needs to understand and use SQL to manipulate a database.

There are no formal pre-requisites for this Introduction to SQL course, although an understanding of databases and exposure to information technology in general would be useful.

Course Objectives

To provide the knowledge and skills needed to retrieve data held in a relational database.

Requirements

Some previous programming or database experience would be useful.

You may wish to review the content of the 3 day Oracle SQL course, the 3 day Introduction to MySQL course or the 3 day Introduction to MariaDB course and if more suitable to your training needs attend one of those courses rather than this 1 day Introduction to SQL course.

Great introductory course which explained the principles and had a good selection of practical examples. It helped to have seen colleagues running queries and therefore relate the examples to real life scenarios.

I compared courses in Belgium to the one offered by StayAhead, and SA definitely had my preference. I really liked the flexibility of the lecturer concerning extra exercises that had a bit more challenge to them than written down in the course itself.
