In this intermediate Microsoft MCSA: SQL 2016 training, Garth Schulte covers the objectives in the 70-761 and 70-762 exams, which are the two exams required to earn the MCSA: SQL 2016 Database Development certification.
The MCSA: SQL 2016 certification is a versatile certification used to validate database and SQL skills for a wide range of data professionals. The 70-761 training is a deep dive into T-SQL. For anyone who already knows SQL, much of this training may be review. However, T-SQL has a slightly more complex syntax than vanilla SQL. It’s only by knowing the intricacies of the T-SQL query language that you can fully benefit from its modularity, security, and efficiency.
The second part of the training is dedicated to designing and managing Server 2016 databases. Databases have a lot of moving parts and database administrators need to adhere to best practices to ensure data moves smoothly. This 70-762 training covers concurrency, optimization, and the detail-oriented work of storing and moving data for business applications.
Demand for database administrators has steadily risen in the past decade, and demand for the MCSA: SQL 2016 Database Development has followed. With the right experience, database administrators who complete this SQL Server 2016 training will be more marketable as a database administrator, and better prepared to step into more senior DBA roles.
This MCSA: SQL 2016 training can be used for 70-761 and 70-762 exam prep, on-boarding new database administrators, or part of a team training plan.
