SQL for Data Practitioners FAQs: Cost, Training, Value
Like the name suggests, data practitioners should take this SQL course. Database administrators and data warehouse techs can learn a lot, but this course is especially useful for data analysts and analysts who rely on the results of database queries regularly. Even non-technical professionals who just go through lots of data should take this course.
No, this course isn't directly tied to any certifications, although what you learn can help you in a number of different applications. Rather than try to prepare you for a test, this course helps you understand what SQL does and gives you a chance to actually practice reading and writing it in realistic scenarios and simulations.
Many SQL certifications are job-related certifications that depend in part on a strong knowledge of SQL, so the right cert depends on your job and need. For example, Microsoft Certified: Azure Data Fundamentals is a good cert to pursue – it covers many skills in working with data on Azure's cloud platform, of which SQL is an important part.
Working with databases is like being in a foreign country – you don't have to learn the language of the locals (in this case, SQL). But, if you don't, you'll rely on translators and whatever help you can find. Learn SQL and be fluent in the native language of databases and be a more effective data professional.
