Synopsis for Advanced Oracle 19c SQL training course

Throughout a person's working life in IT they will never stop learning new aspects to their job, whether it’s a new piece of software, operating system or machinery but whatever comes along proper and timely training is essential to keep them up to speed with new techniques, this will enable them to keep at their peak efficiency and effectiveness. Once they have learnt the fundamentals and basics of an area they will need to move onto more complex and advanced topics within the subject.

This is the Advanced Oracle 19c SQL training course, it effectively picks up where we left off from the Oracle SQL 19c training course which is available as a scheduled / public training or on-site, this course is purely on-site, we come to you or you can come to us in Swansea or we can arrange a venue convenient to your Delegates.

At the top of the page there is a banner which will take you to the latest Essentials version of this course, this course is for experienced Oracle SQL practitioners and maybe you need to look at the starter course before booking this one, take a look at the topics on this course in our index and discuss your needs with our very experienced training advisers.

When we perform this course we bring with us all the kit necessary for the work, the Database machine, individual workstations for each Delegates and of course our high quality manuals which the Delegates keep following the course. This Oracle 19c Advanced SQL course comes with 12 different exercise sets, our mantra, is tell them, show them, let them use it … so following a couple of sections of tutorial we get the Delegates to try out the techniques ably supported by our friendly and knowledgeable training Consultant, we use the Netsupport software so that we can see the screens of our Delegates without having to walk round and disturb them, we can even type in the code if they need that little nudge to get them on the way.

Some Companies like their Delegates to sit together when working on solutions, this we can do, in a normal working environment most teams work together to solve problems so why not when on a course, just let one of our experienced and friendly Training Advisers know your requirements.

On the subject of requirements, Seer Computing pride itself on being highly flexible when providing onsite training, for example you can pick the start times, normally we start at 9am but we can start earlier or later to fit in with shift patterns, regular staff meetings or indeed personal commitments. The same applies to the start dates, this is a three day course so we can start on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, in fact we have run this course over a weekend when the client requests it.

Take a look at the index for this course, it may have elements within it you don’t need, if that’s the case and you are on a budget it can be slimmed down to those you are interested in, if we save a day on the course we can lower the costs.

Payment for this course can be made a number of ways, Companies can issue a purchase order and pay either by BACS, cheque or credit card (with 4% surcharge), individuals have exactly the same options minus the purchase order of course. We always issue an invoice for the work, when we quote the price is inclusive of all costs but exclusive of vat which is added when invoicing. Quotations are honoured for six months after issue.

All quotations are free without any obligation and we know you will like the quality of the course and the professionalism with which we deal with your request.
