Earlier this year, we held a series of onsite SQL training sessions for our Systems Analysts with more than 40 colleagues advancing their SQL skills. Additionally, the training provided valuable engagement and collaboration opportunities.

Several attendees were able to immediately apply skills learned. They were able to add hints to long running queries that improved performance, and solving a production report issue by using a SQL variable technique, demonstrated in the session. Even our most seasoned SQL professionals found the training valuable.

Session facilitators were very accommodating, and after soliciting feedback, geared the training toward topics of particular interest.

 "I’m thrilled we were able to provide this training opportunity, which will enable colleagues to do their job better and more efficiently. This is important for both the quality of work and morale."
