This course provides essential training in the basics of three core components:
- Relational DBMSs: Gain a solid understanding of Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMSs) and how they are structured.

I took a SQL level 1 class on a Saturday and it was soo helpful. The instructor was humorous, extremely knowledgeable, and was an efficient communicator. He knew exactly how SQL was utilized in a real-world business aspect and was able to give examples of times you'd need to use certain queries and how they can be used most effectively.

I had self taught myself SQL while on the job a couple of years ago. I took this as a refresher since I haven't used SQL in a while and I left learning a lot more b/c I finally understood why everything worked a certain way.

brianna s. attended SQL Level I
I felt that this class was a great introduction to SQL, coming from someone who had very little exposure to it before the class. They broke it down for us in a very comprehensible manner and provided examples along the way that we could practice. I look forward to taking Level 2!

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.

Took the SQL level 1 course with no prior knowledge. It was extremely helpful and it went a pace slow enough for me to understand, while being fast enough that I did not get bored.
