The SQL 2008 / 2005 Database Developer Program provides individuals the skills they need to be successful as a database developer in today¿s corporate environments. This program provides foundational skills for transact SQL and then all of the development skills for supporting SQL Server 2008 or 2005. We also want to make sure our students get exposed to SQL reporting services since this the most popular BI tool that corporate environments are working with if they are utilizing SQL Server 2008 or 2005. But to be a successful database administrator today is not all about technical skills. Businesses want and need more out of their IT people. With that said our program focuses on top soft/business skills corporate organizations are looking for. Our program incorporates 4 key professional skills workshops of their choice, foundation skills in Business Analysis to help enhance skills in the requirements gathering and analysis areas, as well as a solid course covering key aspects of project management which could prepare someone for the CAPM certification if they choose. Students who complete the SQL 2008/2005 Database Administrator Program and pass the exams will earn two certifications. This includes two Microsoft exams (MCTS: SQL 2005, MCTS, SQL 2008).
