In this self-paced online course, you'll learn PL/SQL programming language basics, including the basic programming block structure, conditional statements, looping constructs, and additional functionality to extend the use of SQL.

Coursework involves connecting to the schema on Oracle Database Cloud Service from SQL Developer, writing PL/SQL code, designing blocks and packages, creating triggers, and handling runtime errors. You'll also learn how to use Oracle-supplied packages in application development.

This course includes a 6-month Oracle Student Learning Subscription with access to Oracle's cloud environment, so you can practice on relational data stored in the Oracle Cloud.

By the end of the course, you'll have a solid foundation in PL/SQL programming and real-world coding skills on which to base continued work and training. You'll also receive one voucher to take the Oracle PL/SQL Developer Certified Associate exam.
