SQL Training Overview

This SQL for Report Writers and Analysts training teaches attendees the basics of Transact SQL, including writing simple and complex queries, working with data types, building functions, and more. Students also learn how to combine data from multiple tables and result sets using JOIN operations and subqueries. Students then take their skills to the next level with advanced query concepts, including ranking functions and common table expressions (CTE’s). Finally, they learn how to change data in the database using Data Manipulation Language (DML).

Note: This class is appropriate for SQL Server 2012 through 2017.

We also offer a 3-day class to cover the basics if your group does not wish to include advanced topics.
