SQL: Level 1 Training Overview

SQL is a powerful and popular database program that is widely used for data analysis and manipulation. The Career Center provides hands-on Instructor-led training in small class sizes to provide an ideal training experience. When you arrive at The Career Center you are given a Course Manual, that is yours to keep, and then shown to your seat with a computer that is fully equipped with SQL. The instructors computer is attached to an overhead projector so you can easily follow their instructions. The class is taught in a very hands-on way, with the instructor teaching a concept and then the class doing exercises to enforce it. The maximum class size is 10 so you don't have to worry about getting lost in the crowd!

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Connect to the SQL Server database and execute a simple query
  • Include a search condition in a simple query
  • Use various functions based on the data types to perform calculations on data
  • Organize the data obtained from the query before it is displayed on the screen

Attended: SQL: Level 1
Pace was ideal, not too fast that beginner couldn't keep up, but not too slow that it got boring.


Attended: SQL: Level 1
Great class! This was a good overview of SQL. I am looking forward to practicing and attending Session 2. The only think i would improve is to have more independent work. I am a very hands on learner and I believe it would have been a good experience to try to create a lot of solutions on my own.


Attended: SQL: Level 1
Coming in with a few years of database experience, I find this class to be a very good refresher course. The instructor, Peter, is a database elite; and he was great conducting the class -- the pace was just right, the topics were covered, and he encouraged us to think and engage in discussions. Unfortunately, he doesn't teach at night (I plan to attend the night session of SQL Level 2). The location was easily accessible from where I live (Jersey City). The classroom was clean, but a little too tiny. Good thing the class was small -- we were only five in the session, so room size didn't really matter at the time. The PC's were all working and ready, and we experienced no technical disruptions at all. We had a short morning break, a one hour lunch, and an afternoon break. Our group decided to shorten our lunch break so we could leave a little early. Keurig coffee machine is available at the lobby, and there's also a mini-fridge with water bottles and cans of soda for everyone. My only nitpick was the outside noise: the location was at the intersection of Madison and 34th, I could hear the constructions and ambulances. But the same can be said to other training schools I went to, so I am used to it. YMMV. Overall, I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to get his/her feet wet on SQL database. If you don't get it the first time, there's always a free retake (valid for a year I believe).

Ready to go computers. Small classroom size. Easy to find location


Attended: SQL: Level 1
SQL level 1 was a great class to introduce SQL and to practice it. The instructor, Peter, was very informative and made sure we understood the concepts before moving on. He did a great job of testing our knowledge throughout the class.
