Relational algebra and then the SQL (structured query language) are presented. Advanced topics include triggers, stored procedures, indexing, elementary query optimization, and fundamentals of concurrency and recovery.

Learners will have the opportunity to apply their knowledge of databases using industry- standard cloud-based technology e.g. using ServiceNow training.
