Why Come to JBI Training for a SQL Server Admin Course?

Client feedback shows that delegates on our courses will best engage when they can relate course topics to their own day-to-day practices and requirements. Where possible, we  run this course as a consultative, workshop-style event, in which discussion of relevant topics takes place in relation to the delegates' own applications and scenarios.

To facilitate this type of event, a subject matter expert leads the training, hands-on labs and discussions to ensure course topics are covered in a meaningful, relevant and timely manner. Delegates may be able to bring their own practical requirements and work to the course if the subjects and course topics are suitable.  

Our 5-day SQL Server 2012/2014 training course for administrators will give delegates the skills of setting up, maintaining and getting the most out of Microsoft's latest version of SQL Server .

Demonstrations and course labs will be on SQL 2012 with any specific differences being demonstrated where necessary (usually in a short session at the end of each day).


IT professionals who need the fundamental skills to install, maintain, administer and troubleshoot Microsoft SQL Server 2012.
