Certificate in SQL

Structured Query Language (SQL) is the industry-standard language for database programming. It is one of the most in-demand skills in jobs that require interaction with data and analyzing data. Learning SQL can lead to database administration jobs and occupations that are specific to analyzing data such as a data analyst, a quality assurance analyst, or a business analyst.

Following your completion of this certificate, you will understand relational database structures and the history and uses of Structured Query Language.  You will be able to use Structured Query Language to create a database, add records to database tables, and how to use SQL queries to extract meaningful data from database tables. Although you will start by creating simple SQL queries that query a single table, by the end, you will be able to query multiple tables simultaneously.  Finally, you will be able to practice techniques that enable you to write powerful queries that perform complicated scans and sorts of data. This certificate will enhance your competitiveness in the field of database administration and data analyst jobs.

In this course, you will learn how to retrieve more meaningful data from one or more tables stored in a database. You will learn how to merge data from multiple columns, how to create calculated fields, and how to order and group the results from a query. You will also learn how to create a single join query or subquery to obtain data from multiple tables simultaneously.
