SQL Weekend Foundation Course

Our SQL Courses in London are a great opportunity for you to master your SQL skills and get really comfortable working with Databases and writing SQL (Structured Query Language) scripts. Whether you are a beginner or need a refresher our SQL training in London is a great way for you to learn and develop your skills. This 2 day weekend SQL Training in our central London venue is ideal for busy professionals.

We build the picture from the basic concepts of how a database works and how it functions. We want you to understand how to create a well-designed and structured MS SQL Server database. Microsoft SQL Server is one of the most widely used databases in large companies in London so it is an ideal learning platform. Everything you learn is totally transferable to Oracle, Sybase, MySQL, even MS Access so don’t worry if you use something other than MS SQL Server at work. Each of these systems have some small differences but the fundamentals of database design and SQL querying is the same across all technologies.

This is very much a hands on SQL training course. We have high specification laptops with the latest software and MS SQL Server installed so you can really get to grips with writing SQL scripts and designing a database yourself. We try to give you the perfect mix of theory and practice to keep you interested and engaged. Our aim is to enable you to go back to work on Monday brimming with confidence about writing advanced SQL queries to extract information from any large relational database.

Your tutor is a database expert with a PHD in Computer Science. He designs and builds large risk platforms for the worlds leading Investment Banks in London. He has deep theoretical knowledge as well as a huge amount of hands on real world experience. He is also proficient in: C#, SQL/T-SQL, HTML5, JavaScript (including ExtJS and jQuery frameworks), CSS, XML/XSL
