Our live online or classroom SQL training courses have no more than 6 people per course. Have a look at our introductory and advanced SQL courses, and our other SQL training resources.
We currently run the following scheduled SQL courses:
Sick of having to contact your IT people or third party supplier to get at your own data? Learn to write SQL queries to get at it yourself, using either SQL Server Management Studio or (by request) Azure Data Studio. We run two scheduled courses: a two-day introduction to SQL course, and a two-day advanced SQL course.
If you're a quick learner you could consider combining these two courses together and attending our single three-day fast-track course (but only if you're a quick learner).
This course will show you how to write queries like the one below using T-SQL, the dialect of SQL used within Microsoft's SQL Server:
-- show how many films there are for each certificate
COUNT(*) as 'Number of films'
Film as f
INNER JOIN Certificate AS c
ON f.CertificateID = c.CertificateID
-- show most popular certificate first
'Number of films' DESC
This won't necessarily make much sense to you now, but it will do after the course!
This course assumes that you know how to write queries, and shows you how to program in SQL, including using variables, writing stored procedures and functions and using table variables and temporary tables. Here's a sample of what you'll learn to do:
CREATE PROC spListFilms(
-- list films winning this many Oscars
Film AS f
f.OscarWins between @minOscars and @maxOscars

Not only do we train on SQL, but we use it too! Our systems are powered by SQL Server. At the time of writing, these use the following objects, for example:
|Internal site (intranet)||128||163|
So we definitely practise what we preach! We're also big believers in teaching you not just how to write SQL, but how to write good SQL, following our own internal SQL coding standards.
There are many ways in which we can help you learn SQL!
You can get a good flavour of what a Wise Owl SQL course would be like by having a look at one or two of the following exercises.
We've published the following short videos on learning and using SQL.
