3 reviews for Introduction to MySQL

  1. Simone | Programme Support Officer

    The course is perfect for anyone who is just starting to use MySQL. Well paced and with enough time for questions and to go over the exercises if any of the candidates were unclear. I feel that I would be able to go back to work and start using these techniques immediately.

  2. Oliver | Professional Services

    Trainer was a very informative and patient instructor who helped us to accomplish a good level of understanding of MySQL and RDBMS within a minimal time frame.
