Introduction to SQL and PL/SQL is an intensive hands-on course that is designed to give the student maximum exposure to Oracle SQL and PL/SQL.  The student learns by doing, and this class has dozens of in-class exercises and the student will be guided from very simple SQL commands to increasingly complex PL/SQL coding techniques.


The topics start with the basics of SQL and progress into increasingly complex queries, including table joins, subqueries and creating Oracle views.  The PL/SQL section begins with simple concepts and the student gradually masters PL/SQL through increasingly challenging classroom exercises.



This course is designed for practicing Oracle professionals who have basic experience with SQL and the use of a relational database. Prior experience with Oracle is not required, but experience using SQL with a relational database is highly desirable.


Curriculum development:

This course was designed by John Garmany with a focus of getting started fast.  Garmany is a noted author of six Oracle books and a seasoned PL/SQL instructor.


Learning Objectives:

By the end of this course the student will be able to formulate advanced SQL queries including correlated subqueries and outer joins. The student will also become familiar with the internals of Oracle9i SQL and will be able to use the EXPLAIN PLAN utility to tune SQL statements.  Topics also include SQL constructs, using SQL*Plus, advanced SQL operators and PL/SQL structures and tables.
