SQL Querying for PostgreSQL (2 days)

PSQ-80: Introduction to SQL training for developers or users who need only to extract (not modify) data from PostgreSQL databases

"The course was very well run. I felt I could ask the tutor anything and he wouldn't think it a silly question. The course notes were really well written and very easy to follow. We were all engaged throughout the 3 days. I am extremely happy with the course. "

This SQL training course is for those who need to extract data specifically from PostgreSQL relational databases. While attendees gain much experience designing complex SQL queries using standard PostgreSQL functions, joins and subqueries, SQL action statements which facilitate data or database modification are not covered. The course is highly practical in nature and the focus throughout is on coding SQL (with PostgreSQL variances) by hand. On completion, a comprehensive set of course notes, examples, tutor and attendee scripts are made available online for each attendee.

Suggested Prerequisites

No prior SQL, PostgreSQL or relational database experience is assumed.

"All of the course was useful, although I have worked with SQL a lot I was always told that there's a certain way for things to be done, but never knew why. I am leaving the course with a full understanding around the reasoning of certain actions."

"Excellent - I am a complete beginner to SQL and have been amazed at how much I have learned in these three days and how far I am going to be able to go on this basis."

"I like how I was able to work at my own pace but also felt supported when required. I like how the modules are available to me after the course to complete so I can continue to learn."

"Met needs perfectly - a good grounding in SQL and the tools to take away to refresh myself if need be. The material to take away is ideal."

"Excellent. The course content was pitched exactly where it should have been to take account of people who had used SQL before and people who hadn't."
