Course description

The SQL for PostgreSQL course is designed to give delegates practical experience in writing SQL statements and scripts using PostgreSQL. The basic SELECT statement, the use of SQL functions, and the basic table and view handling statements are introduced.

Exercises and examples are used throughout the course to give practical hands-on experience with the techniques covered.

Skills Gained

The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:

  • Creating SQL statements to query database tables
  • Using standard aggregate functions and related SELECT statement clauses
  • Joining Tables
  • Using basic subqueries and the set operators
  • Using numeric, character and date functions
  • Using conversion and other miscellaneous functions
  • Using complex subqueries
  • Creating and altering tables and views
  • Inserting, updating and deleting rows in database tables
  • Creating and listing indexes
  • Managing sequences
Who will the Course Benefit?

This is an ideal course for anyone who needs to use and understand the Structured Query Language (SQL) to query, report and update data in a PostgreSQL database.

Course Objectives

The course aims to provide the delegate with the knowledge to be able to use SQL to manipulate data held in a PostgreSQL database and to progress their SQL skills beyond the basics.

Requirements

There are no formal pre-requisites for the SQL for PostgreSQL course, although an understanding of databases and exposure to information technology in general would be useful. This knowledge can be gained by attendance on the Relational Databases & Data Modelling Overview course.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Tarn was friendly and very knowledgeable about all aspects of the course. The explanation of the subject matter was always easy to follow and Tarn was able to answer all of my questions in a simple and easily understandable manner. Thank you very much!

Very good course with a friendly instructor who was obviously well experienced and great at teaching. I would recommend this course for anyone needing further experience in PostgreSQL.
Suresh

Excellent training course and material. Only thing that I would prefer is a print out of the course notes rather than an electronic copy as I prefer to make my own notes - other than that enjoyed it thoroughly.
