“SQL Level 1 is a great course to introduce you to writing SQL queries. Starting with the basics, by the end you will understand complex queries with inner or outer joins. Peter was our instructor and his customized course material is very well laid out with practical examples. You work on a local sample database, so you can type notes and test your queries to better understand the output you get. The facility is neat, the equipment is fairly new and ready to use, and beverages are provided.”
