A number of powerful tools are available to help you build databases and database applications. However, if you do not apply a systematic, structured approach to the use of those tools, you will probably produce systems that fail to meet user needs.

Many projects bog down or are never completed for lack of a disciplined approach to development. This course will guide you step-by-step through all the phases of a system development project to guarantee that the resulting product will not only work as it was designed to work, but also that the design truly responds to user needs.

"An Excellent Course. Thank you, Allen!"
"As someone whose use of computers began in the days of punch cards, this was a very good course. Professor Taylor's discussion of database history was very helpful to me. Even though I have a Microsoft Certification in Access, I learned quite a lot about basic database structure and how to deliver a proposal to clients. It is obvious that Professor Taylor has done all that - many times over. The supplementary material links with each lesson were great.""Good course overall ... informative, basically clear and definitely well worth my efforts in taking."

I still need an advance course to do my in Access but for now I can continue to experiment with the additional information that I gained. I would take more courses from him and tell others.""Great course! This week I was able to contribute in a conversation about ODBC and API in a 3-tier environment. I couldn't do that before taking this course. Thanks!"
"Great illustrations of user data model, E-R model, MS Access, SQL, and Database Application using Access."
"I am a QA Engineer between jobs. I've been testing database heavy applications for years and have been using lots of different databases in my job, but I have never had formal training in it. I am using my "free" job searching time to learn more about developing databases. It seems I got into an excellent class. Your writing, Allen, is so precise -- I am enjoying reading your class material. Thanks so much! I wish other classes were written as well as this one."
"I am a very busy professional and I found this course to be EXACTLY what I needed to expand my knowledge areas. The instructor is very knowledgeable and was in-step 100% with the current industry leaders opinions and best practice recommendations."

Databases can help you or your organization to gather, store and process information about your clients, about the current operational problems or shape the future strategy.

Business information management has become effective with the help of database-driven solutions which include features like data retrieval, storage and manipulation processes. Database is developed with the help of several database models some of which include hierarchical model, network model, and relational model and object model. The construction of databases requires construction of tables with all relevant properties, design and development of the forms for data entry, for evaluation, letter generation and reporting.


Appropriate databases can help save valuable time, money and resources which are spent to manage data. The ExpertRating Database Development Certification will make you familiar with terms like enterprise data modeling, information systems architecture, information engineering, functional decomposition and prototyping.

ExpertRating Online Database Development Course Coverage (6 weeks program)  

Week One

Wednesday - Lesson 01

Who can benefit from a database? Anyone who needs to store data and later retrieve meaning from that data. In this lesson, you'll see where databases came from, explore the major types, and see how the various parts fit together

Friday - Lesson 02

This lesson will define and describe the major components of a database system. You'll learn about the System Development Life Cycle, which practically guarantees the success of any database system you produce

Week Two

Wednesday - Lesson 03

You will learn how important the non-technical portions of a development project are. You'll see why it's not enough to build a system that meets design goals--it also needs to satisfy the people who will use it. You'll learn how to build an Entity-Relationship model that is based on a consensus of what all the stakeholders need.

Friday - Lesson 04

This lesson will teach you how to find out what the client organization really needs from the development project--it may be very different from what they originally asked for! This lesson will discuss the pros and cons of either upgrading an existing system or building a new one from scratch

Week Three

Wednesday - Lesson 05-

Relational databases are by far the most commonly used database type today. They're the most likely type of database that you will find yourself designing and using. In this lesson, you'll learn the relational model: how to create relational databases that have the right combination of performance and reliability to meet your needs.

Friday - Lesson 06

Lesson 6 is the pivot point of this course: You will learn how to translate the Entity-Relationship model into a relational model that you can implement directly as a database. A model that accurately describes the system you are modeling is your best guarantee that the system you deliver will perform as you need it to.

Week Four

Wednesday - Lesson 07

You will move to the hands-on portion of the course. You will take what you have learned so far to build an actual database, using the popular Microsoft Access database management system. The database will track important information for a fictitious nonprofit organization.

Friday - Lesson 08

In this lesson, you will learn how to build a database with the SQL language--a language that is supported by all relational database management systems. You'll also learn how to protect it from accidental or intentional harm.

Week Five

Wednesday - Lesson 09

Databases store data. That's important, but it's not worth much if you can't pick and choose the information you want to retrieve from the database. You will learn how to create a database application that will give users a turnkey tool for retrieving exactly the information they want with a minimum of hassle.

Friday - Lesson 10

It's more important than ever to ensure that your company's organizational data does not fall into the wrong hands. This lesson teaches you how to control who accesses your data. This lesson will also cover how to protect your data if your hardware fails or if some other unexpected disaster occurs.

Week Six

Wednesday - Lesson 11

This lesson takes you to the next level--creating sophisticated database applications by combining code written with procedural languages such as Visual Basic, or C with SQL statements. This lesson will go on to discuss how to make databases and database applications available on an organization's network and on the World Wide Web.

Friday - Lesson 12

This lesson emphasizes the critically important (but often overlooked) human aspect of a database development project. Your client may not have a clear idea of what they want at the outset of your database project. That means your communication and interpersonal skills are going to be just as important as your technical expertise. After completing this final piece of the database puzzle, you'll be ready to create database systems that truly meet the needs of your client organization.
