Course description

Relational Databases & Data Modelling Overview - In-house Training

The Relational Databases & Data Modelling Overview course is designed to give delegates practical experience in data modelling using entity relationship diagrams & data normalisation, also in designing relational databases using the normalised entity model. Both entity modelling and data normalisation form core elements of this course. Delegates are not expected to have any prior knowledge of systems analysis or databases, and the course includes a brief introduction to the principles of systems analysis.

The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:

  • The database approach
  • Database Management Systems
  • The logic of database architectures
  • Entity modelling
  • Constraints and assumptions
  • Data normalisation to the third normal form
  • Logical data structures
  • The relational schema
  • Database constraints
  • The concept of views
  • De-normalisation techniques
  • An introduction to simple queries in Structured Query Language (SQL)
Who will the Course Benefit?

Developers moving into the area of relational databases who need an understanding of the principles and logic of the relational database; programmers who are to start programming in SQL and need to know the principles on which it is built; programmers who need to understand entity modelling and normalization; analysts needing a knowledge of entity modelling and entity relationship diagrams and any others who need to know the principles of relational analysis and data modelling but do not need a complete systems analysis course.

Course Objectives

The Relational Databases & Data Modelling Overview course provides an understanding of the structure of a RDBMS (Relational Database Management System) and the underlying principles of relational analysis and data modelling.

Requirements

An understanding of Information Technology concepts and computer terms is required.
