SQL for Data Analytics

Group Training + View more dates & times


This course provides you with an overview of Structured Query Language (SQL) so that you can quickly begin working with and analyzing data with other data science tools. Before you can analyze data, you need to have the correct data.

  • Filtering and sorting data
  • Importing and exporting data from CSV and Excel
  • Data normalization
  • Differences between SQL and NoSQL databases
