FAQs

Our online training is designed to re-create the classroom experience as closely as possible.

It is a live training session using Zoom or Teams and the trainer is there throughout.

The training is still hands-on so you do need to have the software installed on your own computer. The trainer shares their screen to demonstrate techniques and there is also the option of being able to share your screen if you are really stuck! Depending on the class size, which we still keep to a maximum of 8, questions can be asked at any time or at set points throughout the day.

The trainers like to see you! They much prefer it if you have a camera on so they can see you as well as you being able to see them.

We provide everything that you will need for a fun, productive day of SQL training.

Everyone has their own computer to work on in a comfortable, bright, air-conditioned room.

We provide plenty of tea, coffee & biscuits, a delicious, freshly prepared lunch and a USB stick so that you can take files home with you.

We provide 6 months of post-course support as well.

If you get stuck on anything relating to your SQL course simply get in touch and explain the issue.

We will make sure your trainer contacts you as soon as possible to help you out.

We don’t want to be the biggest training company but we are trying to be the best.

We have now won the Feefo Gold Award for customer service for 6 years in a row.

To back up our promise of great training we offer a 100% money-back guarantee.

Our focus is on you being a faster, more capable SQL user when you return to work.

Our SQL courses combine traditional teaching to explain new concepts and tools with hands-on exercises.

The exercises ensure that you get plenty of time to try out what you have just been taught and make sure that you really understand it.

We also make sure that there is plenty of time for you to ask questions in case there is anything you are unsure of.

Our SQL training courses also cover database design so that you can understand how best to set up and configure a relational database.

The video below runs through what is covered in each of the courses.

This SQL training courseis carried out using MS SQL Server 2017.

You will be provided with a PC set up with SQL Server Management Studio (MS SQL SMS).

For our London SQL training we use HP desktop PCs.

For our Guildford SQL training we use Dell desktop PCs

Yes it absolutely is.

The basics of SQL are the same in all environments. The differences when using a derivative of SQL (for example, T-SQL) or when working in different environments are extremely small.

Our trainers are more than happy to chat to you about these small differences as you go through the training day.

In addition, the items that you learn relating to database design and database management will also be applicable.

SQL is short for structured query language.

It is the fundamental language used to interact with relational databases.

You can find full details of our London location here: London Training Centre.

Your SQL training London will be held at Fleet House on New Bridge Street. This is 2 minutes walk from Blackfriars tube station and about 3 minutes from the City Thameslink station.

If you have some experience with computers SQL is not difficult to learn.

As with anything new, it requires time and effort and, ideally, help from someone experienced with sql databases.

For someone interested in data science, learning SQL and understanding structured query language is foundational. It is the core querying language for all relational databases.

It shouldn’t take you more than a couple of weeks to become competent using SQL.

It really depends on how much time you can spend practicing.

We encourage everyone attending our courses to practice what they’ve learned querying a database on their return to work. This is why we provide you with USB sticks to take your work home with you.

If you don’t have access to a database you can download Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio for free and set up a practice environment for free.
