Course Overview

The Access Essentials course is conducted over 2 days and is designed for people with no prior knowledge of Microsoft Access or relational databases.

Once the table schema has been constructed and enforced students will be able to enter new data via forms, analyse the data using queries and present the data for presentation or printing using reports. With a solid grounding in the fundamentals of database design, students are able to implement their newly acquired skills from the training when developing Access databases in the future. With time and practice, the sky’s the limit.

    The entire course was very helpful and relevant. I have had minimal experience with the 'behind the scenes' of Access so this was an excellent introduction to how the database works.
