Interested in learning SQL? Not sure where to start? You've come to the right place! We are both analysts using SQL on a regular basis to extract and organize business-critical information. In this course, we'll cover what we consider to be core SQL knowledge to operate in a day-to-day business environment. After this course, you'll be able to extract and organize data (think joins, ordering, filtering) to gain meaningful insights, setting you up to become your company's in-house SQL wizard.

In this course, we will teach you the following:

  • Brief overview of key terms and concepts to get started with SQL
  • Basic-intermediate SQL syntax, through increasingly difficult examples
  • Plenty of further resources/references to become a true SQL ninja

*This course is an excellent resource for beginners to hit the ground running. Intermediate to advanced users should check other Udemy options, or return back when we release a more advanced option

Who is the target audience?
  • SQL course is designed for students with little to no experience working with data and using SQL to extract data.
  • Non-technical students
  • Aspiring data analysts
  • Recent college grads with no SQL experience
  • Job-seekers
