Certificate In SQL Programming

Data is all around us, being collected and harvested through every daily transaction, internet search, social media interaction, phone call, purchase, navigational aid, and meal – just for starters.

Every organization collects data, but only those with the talented and skilled individuals are able to translate raw data into meaningful information and functional visualizations. A proficiency in structured query language (SQL) is the basic fundamental for anyone working with data. As an essential query language, SQL is the leading developmental tool utilized to interact with database management systems. By having a functional understanding, built on not only the concepts but also the hands-on database interaction, will one then have the knowledge base to turn data into valuable information, necessary for critical business decisions that can affect the entire organization.

SQL is THE standard for both ANSI (American National Standards Institute) as well as ISO (International Organization for Standardization). Essentially, SQL is the standard language for one to communicate with databases through the storage, retrieval, manipulation, and deletion of data.
