I've just joined this forum being a new user of SQL Server 2012. I currently work within the IT sector but would like move to a more SQL database / .NET developer role. I would like to look at SQL courses as I have very little knowledge in this area.

Could anyone recommend a recognised SQL course which employers look for when assessing candidates for SQL roles please? I am located in the UK, currently unsure whether to use a distance learning method or take a week of work and partake in one of these fast track courses.

What are your thoughts on the MCSE qualification?

Appreciate any help / comments regarding this.

Thank you.

In my experience, most employers give very little credence to Microsoft Certifications.

Depending on your learning style, you might consider signing up for
a) - it is a subscription based technical book library; there are a few videos, but mostly books. You can find almost all books on SQL programming there.
b) - it is a subscription based video training site. There are a few SQL videos. They give you a trial subscription for a week or so.
c)'s training classes - they are immersive on-site training classes. Expensive, but also worth the money from what I have heard.
