SQL (Structured Query Language) is used to retrieve, analyze, and manage data stored in relational databases. No experience with databases is necessary, as we’ll go over the basic concepts you’ll need to understand the data we’re working with and what we’re accomplishing with our SQL statements. While there are many environments where SQL can be used, most of our time will be spent implementing our SQL statements within a Microsoft Access environment. (This can also be an opportunity to learn a little bit more about what Microsoft Access can do as well.) Gold Star Fee: $62.30.
