gaining access to relational databases

Access 2010, 2013 and 2016 Training Courses and Workshops

Learning Access is unlike learning Excel or Word. In Excel and Word, you can open a new document and start bashing stuff into it straight away.

In Access you have to set up a database from scratch before you can do anything to it or with it. If setting the foundation of a database is a grey area to you then you will need some guidance before going any further.

In its Introduction course, DMW uses a little time explaining the nature of a relational database and the importance of doing the planning before taking to the keyboard and Access itself.

Even on Intermediate and Advanced courses, DMW recaps, when necessary, on the principles of a RDBMS (Relational Database Management System). This is because many participants on past courses spoke of problems with databases they had started tehmselves. In turned out that in most cases problems resulted from the wrong choice of tables and the relationships between them.


Flexible Course Content

DMW adjusts the scope and content of our Basic Introduction, Intermediate, Advanced and Access VBA Programming courses to suit participants' needs.

Each course revolves around hands-on practice based on the sorts of databases in which participants express an interest.

DMW tailors course content and pace with regard to the experience and ability of the participants. This is important if a course is to have the best balance between building confidence in applying newly acquired skills and making the greatest headway on the day.

If you have a mixed bag of training requirements, you may, like some DMW clients, rate workshops as an ideal way of meeting them.

A workshop lasts for a half or a full day and covers any aspect of working on, and with, Access databases.

You fill a workshop by booking with you slots in multiples of half-an-hour for individuals and for groups sharing similar interests.

The popularity of this method of training has shown a marked increase over recent years:

  • Addresses the need for very specific training
  • Provides content that is always 100% relevant
  • Quickly brings people up to urgently-required skills levels
  • People away from their desks for the shortest time only
  • Causes the minimum disruption to the working day.
