Course Information


Storing and accessing data are part of a person's day-to-day activities. One of the most efficient and powerful ways of managing data is by using databases. Information can be stored, linked, and managed using a database application such as MySQL 5.1. In the MySQL Database Fundamentals course, you will work with the databases using MySQL.


  • You will work with databases by identifying the fundamental concepts of databases, creating a preliminary database design, applying normalization techniques, and familiarizing yourself with relational database management systems. Using various SQL commands, indexes, and views, you can work with and modify data efficiently within a database. Using features such as Enterprise Monitor and MySQL Administrator, you can manage users and administer and monitor a database.
