DB2 and SQL Training

First, the concepts of DB2 are presented and discussed. The Structured Query Language (SQL) is presented as the means to access DB2 data (and to create and secure DB2 components). Several guided, hands-on, practice sessions give each attendee an opportunity to use SQL to access data.  QMF and/or SPUFI are used to execute SQL statements.  Referential Integrity concepts and implementation are covered.
