Drawing on decades of practical experience, Champion Valley Software courses are a leap forward in content creation and delivery. Each Mentor teaching a course brings years of past and ongoing practical experience on the subject into the classroom to provide a unique perspective on the content delivered. Based on that practical experience, each mentor is equipped to answer any question which should arise and ensure that each delegate attending the class will leave with skills that can be applied immediately in their environment. Only the best content available coupled with the best instructors possible and utilizing the most current knowledge make it into a Champion Valley Software course.
Certification Boot Camps cover the subject matter for an exam, however, they are not taught directly to the exam. All of the other test prepartion courses focus on students memorizing large amounts of material for the sole purpose of taking a particular exam. Once the exam is completed, most of the knowledge memorized is either forgotten or not useful in the IT world. These courses are designed to teach the subject matter while not teaching specifically to an exam. At the conclusion of the training, attendees come away with a large volume of knowledge which can be immediately applied to their jobs. If a student decides to subsequently take an exam, they are prepared for the material, but first and foremost, they are prepared for the demands of a job working with SQL Server.
This course covers the entire subject matter encompassed by the 70-442 exam.
Regular course price: $4000.
Price for TCU’s Extended Education Program: $300.
