SQL Server Integration Services Classes

When considering data migration, data integration, or data warehousing, using SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) can assist in the process. By building enterprise extraction, transformation, and loading solutions (ETL), you can perform SSIS maintenance and updates.

Virtual Classes: Our SQL Integration Services (SSIS) classes are now available online with an instructor present for the entire course. You will see the instructor's screen throughout the class and you can share your screen if you need individual help from the instructor. You will have time to practice, ask questions, and receive hands-on training. During class, you will be able to access our SQL Server in order to learn SQL.

In-person classes are also available at our West County facility with limited enrollments to promote social distancing. When you register, choose your class section based on how you want to attend the class: virtual or in-person.

  • Select Live Online" if you want to attend virtually from your workplace or home.
  • Choose "West County In-Person" if you want to attend a class at our West County location.
