Microsoft SQL Database Training
Video training and lab course teaching your Microsoft SQL databases. The perfect course for anyone interested in building a career in data platform administration or business intelligence. There is a heavy emphasis on SQL in this course, but no previous knowledge is assumed. The course is based on Microsoft SQL Server.
Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system (RDBMS) that supports a wide variety of transaction processing, business intelligence, and analytics applications in corporate IT environments. As a database server, it is a software product with the primary function of storing and retrieving data as requested by other software applications—which may run either on the same computer or on another computer across a network.
SQL is one of the easiest languages to learn, and the concepts, syntax, queries, and data formats are not only easy to remember but have name-dependent functions too. That is, you would not be confused in any function or concepts of tables, and picking up the various necessary RDBMS tools makes it even more exciting.
If you're looking for your first job in data, knowing SQL is critical. For data analyst roles, SQL is the most in-demand skill, listed in 61% of job posts. For data analyst roles on Indeed, SQL appears as follows: 1.7 times more than Python.
If you want to get certified in Data, then please take our CompTIA Data+ certification course after this.
This course was created to help you pass the Microsoft Technology Associate certification exam, which has now been retired and has not been replaced. All current Microsoft SQL exams are aimed at intermediate to advanced SQL administrators.
By the end of the course, you will be able to:
- Understand Core Database Concepts
- Create Database Objects
- Manipulate Data
- Understand Data Storage
- Administer a Database
