SQL Classes: Microsoft SQL Server Courses and Certification Training

SQL Server authorized computer training and certification classes are at ONLC Training Centers.

SQL Server is the foundation of Microsoft’s comprehensive data platform. SQL Server enables customers to build mission-critical data applications and Big Data solutions using high-performance, in-memory technology across OLTP, data warehousing, business intelligence, and analytics workloads. SQL Server is often the foundation of many database designs, builds, and installations.

SQL Server delivers breakthrough data performance using in-memory technologies, faster insights from any data to any user in familiar data management tools like Excel, and a resilient platform for building, deploying, and managing data solutions that span on-premises and cloud databases.

What is SQL (Structured Query Language)?

Our instructor-led and digital self-study courses cover SQL query language. SQL is an acronym that stands for Structured Query Language. It is the standard query language used to retrieve information from relational databases. SQL is used by Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL and Microsoft Access, just to name a few. It is one of the easiest and quickest queries to get data into and out of a database to perform data analysis. The language is also used to perform advanced database management tasks and have valuable features for data management.

Anyone can learn SQL. You don't need to be a developer or even a computer science person. You also don't need to have a science degree or know a statistical programming language. Even if you don’t think of yourself as particularly technical, learning SQL can make you work more effectively and help advance your career. SQL is used as the query language for many data visualization tools like Power BI, Tableau, Google Data Studio, and Qlik. Having even a basic understanding of SQL will help you get the right data from your data source and opens new possibilities. This data knowledge can help you make better business decisions regarding your product or service. Data science and SQL basics can easily be learned through a course. In our training courses, you will learn about queries, procedures, tables, relational databases, functions, keywords, subqueries, and a variety of other skills. With a course, you'll learn the functions and queries necessary to utilize SQL for your business needs and any future jobs. Even with a simple introduction and basic knowledge, you can set yourself apart from other data managememnt teammates.

SQL may look intimidating to someone not familiar with data science, but most users can learn basic SQL query language in a few hours from a course. SQL uses the English language and common words for commands like JOIN, ADD, CREATE, and SELECT which makes it easy to understand and use for new learners.
