The primary objective of this course is to consider advanced subjects and techniques pertaining to the SQL database language, based upon the latest features available with the Oracle release. Even professionals experienced in other implementations of the industry-standard SQL language will benefit from the advanced and Oracle-specific features of SQL discussed in this course.

What you will learn
Among the specific subjects discussed in this course are:

  • Learn to use the SQL99 join syntax and learn about the full range of join operations available, such as natural join, inner join, cross join, outer joins and others.
  • Perform advanced SQL queries using techniques such as CASE structures, rollup and cube operations.
  • Moving beyond basic table definitions, learn to define the full range of database objects, such as advanced table definitions and the creation of indexes, sequences, views and others.
  • Use the powerful set of built-in SQL functions. These functions provide sophisticated manipulation of character, numeric and date data elements.
  • Taking advantage of the latest features found within the Oracle release, such as the handling and tolerating DML errors without application interruption, newly added functions, and other topics.
  • Obtain database object metadata from the data dictionary.
  • Understand basic database security and object privileges.
  • Protect database integrity and extend the conceptual data model using declarative constraints.
  • Using SQL Developer and other available SQL interfaces.
  • Develop complex SQL*Plus reports and reusable SQL*Plus scripts, as well as control the SQL*Plus environment.

The target audience for this course is all Oracle professionals. Further, this course is well suited for non-Oracle professionals already experienced in the SQL but who wish to become acquainted with the unique and advanced features of Oracle SQL.

Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
I would not recommend WebAge. I would recommend a local provider, the arrangement was not ideal. Using rented space which consisted of a boardroom was not ideal and very disruptive to both the instructor and students. In addition, providing the course to both in class and online students was not ideal. I paid for an instructor lead course so that I don't need to deal with the issues of online training.
