Introducing SQL: The Basics of Database Querying
(SQLINT, Live Instructor-Led Training, 2 days)


This SETC certified course covers every aspect of the SQL language. Beginning with database basics like creating databases and tables, we proceed to a thorough investigation of the SQL language. We discuss the basic data manipulation statement of SQL together with the data modification statements of the language. With some basics under our belts, we are freed to look at more advanced topics like string and date time manipulation as well as the use of NULL values in tables and scripts. We also take the time to study joins and aggregated data along the way. It makes for a busy and rewarding 2 days.
