SQL Training Resources

Learn SQL in Live Online Training

SQL is one of the most popular programming languages used by developers today, with countless technological uses and a secure future. 

Whether you're a developer, seasoned business analyst, or aspiring data enthusiast, our SQL courses give you all the tools you need to extract data, make data-driven business decisions, and develop a career in data analytics. 

For an introduction to SQL or to fill in skills gaps, take our beginner, intermediate or advanced workshops live online. Each course comes with a custom training manual, with step-by-step instructions to complete each skill learned in class. 

Our three-day SQL Bootcamp helps you build data analytics skills from ground zero. Day one starts with developing a thorough understanding of data, different types of databases and the fundamentals of the SQL language. By day three, you'll work with text data, save SQL code for repetitive tasks using stored features, and create temporary tables. 

Data, Databases, and SQL

Extracting actionable insights from complex data sets is a valuable skill, and SQL is the key to unlocking this ability. Careers in database administration, software development, and market research analytics are growing at a faster than average rate. Whether you use large databases, work with Microsoft Applications, or manage data in an eCommerce store, with SQL, you’ll have the tools to make informed business decisions quickly.

Structured Query Language or SQL (pronounced S-Q-L or sequel) is a back-end programming language explicitly designed to work with database management systems (DBMSs). A database is a collection of organized data. Databases contain tables, which store data in structured groups. For example, a grocery store database would have separate data tables for produce, bakery items, and canned foods.

With SQL, you can:

  • Group and summarize data
  • Retrieve, sort, and filter data
  • Create new fields by calculating two existing fields
  • Retrieve data from multiple tables with inner and outer JOINs
  • Generate stored procedures to save and reuse SQL code
  • Use views to create tables based on other tables

What You'll Learn in our SQL Courses

Our SQL classes include simple, methodical, step-by-step tasks that will teach you everything you need to know. You’ll go from basic query and retrieval tasks to joining SQL tables for better insights and storing complex SQL code for later use. Topics covered in our SQL classes include:

  • Fundamentals of Relational Databases
  • Major clauses including SELECT, FROM, WHERE, GROUP BY, HAVING, ORDER BY
  • Basic to advanced queries
  • Inner and outer joins to pull data from multiple tables
  • Aggregate functions: SUM, AVERAGE, MIN, MAX, COUNT
  • Tables, views, and indexes
  • Decision-making code using advanced functions

SQL Training Benefits at NYIM

  • Hands-on: Go beyond just lectures and put your new knowledge to work with our “learn by doing” approach. You’ll work on real SQL projects so you can walk away with the skills and confidence you need in SQL.
  • Top Instructors: You’ll learn from top professionals and SQL experts 
  • SQL Workbook: You’ll receive a SQL workbook with training exercises so you brush up and review the materials from the class
  • Interactive: We keep our classes small so you can get personalized attention from the instructors as you work through projects in SQL

Why Live Online Training is Better than On-Demand Classes

There are a whole host of options for training these days including in-person training, Live Online Training, and on-demand training. While on-demand classes can be a great option for those with tricky schedules who are looking for self-paced learning, there are some clear advantages to Live Online training.

#1 Accountability

The biggest advantage of on-demand learning is also its biggest pitfall, self-paced learning. We like to think that if we are given the resources that we will be able to have the discipline to go through all the materials in a thorough way on our own, but we are human.

There are more free resources available online than ever before, but we still find ourselves looking for classes, tutors, and other methods of learning. Being in a class with a teacher or other students keeps us accountable to show up every time and do the work that is required. According to one source, the eLearning abandonment rate is around 85% which means that 85% of people who start an online course do not complete it. If you want to make sure you stick with your learning plan and get the skills you need, go for Live Online training.

#2 Interactivity

Live Online training offers interactivity that on-demand classes do not, with other students as well as the instructor. In on-demand classes, you are on your own which is often not an ideal way to learn things. With Live Online training you have an instructor there virtually and other students in the class. This gives you the ability to ask questions, get feedback, and collaborate with others. The lack of instructor help may also drive elearning abandonment because people get stuck and without help give up. In Live Online training, you can ask questions, have the instructors review a topic, or get help completing the exercises.

#3 Liveliness & Community

Along with interactivity and getting help from others, Live Online classes also add a bit of liveliness that makes the class a bit more interesting. Sitting at home working on a self-paced course with a recorded instructor can be fairly boring, but with Live Online training, you get to listen to a live instructor with fresh and up-to-date material. You also get to see other students online and hear the questions they have. Live Online classes bring a sense of community to the class and students can communicate with one another and build networks.

There are many benefits to Live Online training and for many people, it can be a better alternative to on-demand training. Get lots of the benefits of in-person training from the comfort of your home and feel free to wear your pajamas. 

Join us live online from Boston for SQL training, in-person at our partner school, AGI Training, or have us at your offices in Boston for corporate training. We look forward to the opportunity to be a part of your learning journey. See you soon!
