Details

This self-paced SQL training course is perfect for advancing your current SQL skills. While Oracle uses a standard SQL like other major databases, PL/SQL is specific to Oracle. PL/SQL is a procedural language with variables, conditions, loops, subprograms, stored procedures, and functions. By course completion, you will understand and know how to use PL/SQL's main features, including declaring, naming, and assigning variables.
