TrainSignal Releases Microsoft MTA Database Administration Fundamentals Training

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TrainSignal, the global leader in professional computer training, announced the release of their Microsoft MTA Database Administration Fundamentals training course.

The MTA exam tests the typical skills expected of a database administrator (DBA), from understanding different data types to complying with security requirements. These introductory training videos cover the typical work tasks of a SQL DBA.

  • Basics of SQL (Structured Query Language)
  • Relational Database Concepts and Types of Data
  • Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio
  • Total preparation for Microsoft MTA Exam 98-364

This course may be considered suitable for beginners, but covers all the objectives for the Database Administration Fundamentals exam, including applied tasks for getting started in a DBA job role. The instructor demonstrates basic yet crucial tasks, such as writing queries, creating database objects, index maintenance, backup and recovery models, and more.

Course instructor Don Jones' broad IT experience comes from 20 years in the business, with a strong focus on Microsoft server technologies. He's the author of more than 45 technology books, Microsoft Security Training, and writes monthly columns for the industry's leading periodicals. He's an in-demand speaker at technical conferences and symposia worldwide, and is widely recognized as one of the top trainers in the Microsoft sector.

For viewers of the course, Don Jones advised, "Words and phrases like composite index, normalization, outer join and more serve as a barrier to new administrators. That's where a concise, no-experience-required course on fundamentals of database systems can come in handy. In addition to preparing you for Microsoft's 98-364 certification exam, the course can prepare you to enter the complex and sophisticated world of database administration. You'll learn the foundations that every database administrator, or DBA, is expected to have in their background."

MTA Database Fundamentals contains 21 lessons in nearly 5 hours of video instruction. Students will receive 2 DVDs of video lessons and additional content.
